  2. Your day lily makes me so jealous, mine have decayed on the hot humid days. I love lily, so elegant.

    1. It is very unusual for a day lily to be producing buds at this time of year, Endah.

    1. Let's hope it is a promise that is kept, Jo.

  4. I think that if we do get Winter in the end, many plants are going to have a big shock. Lots of things are still flowering or flowering again, because of the mild Autumn.

    1. I think all of these will survive just fine, Mark.

  5. I agree with Mark, there are are few things in my garden I'm worried about once the frosts really hit x

    1. I haven't anything in mind yet that I am worried about surviving, Jo. Not any more than is usual that is.

  6. I am surprised at all those buds - is this a common thing for you in November or is this year unusual?

    1. The only unusual one is the day lily, Margaret.

  7. I've got six inch tall daffodil leaves, rosemary bushes in flower and recently pruned shrubs breaking into big leafy shoots. Despite a bit of frost last weekend, everything thinks it's time to get growing rather than closing down for autumn. I even had to hoe the allotment this morning to get rid of vigorous weed growth in the autumn dug ground.

    1. I think the plants just got fed up waiting for summer S and D. Last year our rosemary managed to have flowers on for most of the year.

  8. Day Lily buds Sue? Crikey the plants really are confused right now aren't they! I still have Fuschia outside in full bloom which is very rare for me and the Hydrangeas are still hanging in there but Day Lillies??!!

    1. I was surprised about the day lily too, Linda. It's been in bud quite a while so maybe it won't actually open

  9. Oh, there is a wealth of promise there. Lovely cheering images.xxx

    1. The plants are being a tease aren't they Dina?

  10. It that true? I love camellia, it's beautiful. Perhaps this winter isn't cold, Sue.

    1. The camelia is usually in bud at this time of the year. The day lily is the only one out of sync. The rest are as expected.
