My pickings are getting harder to find yet for mid November, it is extraordinary to have any flowers, let alone roses.
I have picked the much used ‘Lark Ascending” rose with some of the orange toned Molinia ‘Transparent”. The colours work so well together . By contrast Calamagrostis xacutiflora Karl Foerster looks bleached and stiff.
Miscanthus sinensis malepartus is pleasingly fluffy.
The rose has masses of buds but with imminent cold weather (surely) I am not anticipating them having the chance to open. The old enamel labelled bottle is made of orange/brown glass and compliments today’s colours. The earlier contents of the jar,? rhei radix pulveratum a herbal remedy for constipation was absent from the jar by the time I was given it.
That’s a relief then.
Have a good week and let’s hope it dries up soon.
