November 2nd
All the tender plants mostly from the 'Exotic' garden are now protected from the winter to come, despite the fact we have had some unusually warm days recently.
But a colder snap is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

Yesterday we were out on the Ringwood Road in Ferndown where we live, planting Daffodil Bulbs.
I dug about 100 holes, each to plant five bulbs into. It wasn't easy to dig the holes in some of the ground, as there was gravel and stones mixed in with the soil. Should be good drainage though.
A number of people asked what we were doing, when we told them, they thanked us for giving of our time to brighten Ferndown up.
Someone asked if we were planting Onions ! and another asked what we were expecting to find in the holes we were digging !!


Crocus pulchellus 


Aconitum carmichaelii 'Arendsii' 


A very late Phlox with flowers, probably the third flowering of the year.


Abutilon megapotanicum 


Penstemon


Begonia grandis 'Evansiana' seed pods forming.


Salvia 'Amistad' 


Clematis viticella 'Black Prince' flowering for the second time.


Chrysanthemum 'Cottage Lemon'
