I am not a lover of variegated plants as a rule but Fatsia and the Alstromeria are an exception!  The latter has some lovely purple markings on the leave.

Amicia zygomeris was brought in a few weeks ago. Having lost one this is being well cared for. It has got very big and flowering like a mad thing!

Gorgeous grass

Of all the grasses, I love Panicum the best , well the ones I have met!

The one I have which I think is North wind but not sure ,is a lovely height, stately, tiny fragile flowers and fab Autumn colour. Oh the flowers are mauve and because it is windy not very clear in the photo. I like that close up photo.

Noticed Mahonia today really sparkling on a dull but mild day.

Enjoy the weekend.

Wonderful weather...i hope for all.

A few photos from the garden today.

Acer palmatum Osakazuki  in all it's glory. Still has to go to the red stage but pretty fine as it is.

Then Acer sango-kaku  with Pittosporum Tom Thumb and Cotinus Grace

Finally Liquidamber...starting later than in Dublin I think.

Wonderfully weird

Funny to see Heather's post as I was about to make comment about how the Dahlias are at their best now in my garden. Heading towards the middle of October they took their time. Very windy here today.

Amazing the amount of colour still in the garden.  Probably one of the best value plants is Cuphea; starts flowering early and still going very strong. Wonderful Autumn day here hope same with you.

Cannas , lots of them.

There is still some nice colour in the hot area with Canna and Dahlias. The yellow leaved Cortaderia has lovely plumes I love to watch them develop.

Clerodendron trichotomum
