Red in November

03 Nov

The Crinodendron has lots of lovely lanterns, the Alstromeria, somewhat storm beaten but still in flower, both redder in life than in the photo,  and red leaves in the lane to town.

We, like many others will be up late tonight watching the results from America and hoping for the sake of our family and our friends there, for the sake of America and for the sake of our world, that the Democrats win………..

    Such unusual flower structure and stance. Wish we could grow them in cold wet Shropshire!

      Lovely aren’t they? Very pleasing in almost all respects. If they had scent they would be absolutely perfect! 🙂

    I am hoping against hope that the Democrats win everywhere here. But all of us fear the worst. It’s been a terrible four years, and I don’t know how we’ll survive another four if Trump wins.

      As I write, we now know that Biden and Harris are in! What a relief! Nothing seems bad today, everything feels lighter. So pleased for you all and for us and for the whole world. 🙂

    Is it unusual to see the Crinodendron flower at this time of the year? My little tree has one lantern!

      I think it is, at least, ours hasn’t flowered so well this late before now. 🙂
