Autumn Colour in the Garden

Plenty of colour still around in the garden, even though I’ve started to move some of the pots into the greenhouse for winter protection.

The hydrangea is still looking bright and beautiful:

Still have some summer pansies flowering and the fuchsias haven’t quite given up for the winter yet either:

And although most of the stocks are long gone, this one still looks pretty, so I’m reluctant to give up on it:

Nasturtiums are hanging on longer than I thought they would:

And so is this geranium:

Finally, a beautiful bit of autumn colour from this Prostrate Willow (Salix nakamurana yezoalpina) that we bought from a plant fair back in April:
