Autumn Has Arrived!

This morning we had our first frost. 3C when I got up at 06.00 this morning. We have had a lot of fog the last few days, which keeps the temps up. But his morning was sooooooo pretty.....

I love these sort of days, cold, crisp and sunny, the ideal autumnal day. Realistically it is grey, murky and damp!!!

I thought I would share with you one of my all time favourite flowering autumnal plants. Grown from seed each year, this plant slowly scrambles over vast distances before it begins to flower in October.
I introduce Cobaea Scandens

Day one...

This is the purple one, but all the flowers start off cream.

Day two....

Day three...

also day three, you can now see other Day one flowers opening..

Day four...... I know, I know, looks very much like day 3, but I can assure you it is darker and obviously time to get a new camera.

all I can say is this is definitely worth growing

The other option is Alba, which is cream, but why have just cream when you can have cream through to purple?

We have had our first serious frost this morning

but the 'cup and saucer' plant  keeps on flowering.

The following pics are taken this morning after the frost and I would just like toploint out this is just one plant.

Highly recommended!
