For a second year Cathy of Words and Herbs is hosting a Week of Flowers, inviting everyone to share some “extra colour and cheer” by posting one flowery photo a day, for a week.
A great excuse for me to post some of the recent colour found in the sub-tropical gardens close to home.

I loved my Angel’s Trumpet – eventually became too big to transfer in and out of house at the start and end of summer so it had to go 😦
I ditched my Hosta this summer. Although a beautiful plant it has never done well here with all the slugs and snails. Sometimes you just have to admit defeat.
I know, but always feel so guilty!!
I did too! I bought it back in 2004 so had been with me a long time.
Part of the family!!
I know 😢
These are often seen in summer containers here, but sadly too tender to grow outdoors. Thanks for joining in!
It’s surprising how many tender flowers grow outside in Cornwall.
I’ve seen other angel’s trumpets, but not these. The red really demands attention!
I was surprised to see this still in flower this late on in the year, but it is in a very sheltered walled garden.
Amazing! Shows how important some shelter is.
