      Oh yes! And it's not far away now, thanks to the long, lovely autumn we've had! :)

        You are correct Noisette ... I get confused between the three I have ... also the Pandorea jasminoides variagata

        Pandorea  2 Jul 10.JPG

        Podranea 2 Jul 10.JPG

        Pandorea jasminoides variagata

        Pandorea jasminoides V.jpg

        In my opinion, Pandorea has a red throat and is lightly scented and Podranea has fancier flowers with stripes and is unscented. If Pete's came from me, it is Podranea.

        Sorry folks. :phew:

          The colour of your Podranea is much prettier, more subtle! I wonder if temperature plays a part or whether seed-raised plants vary?

            My Podranea ricasoliana was bought from a local nursery.

            I once grew pandorea pandorana,:biggrin:

              Trust you! :biggrin: If my Podranea had resembled Victoria's it would still be romping along the wall, I could have lived with that colour! Ah well, we'll see whether Pandorea j.v. survives in it's place. It's going to get protection for the next few nights!

                  Not much left to show now :noidea: although I haven't had a proper wander round the garden.

                  P1500193.JPG

                  P1500195.JPG

                  P1500198.JPG

                  Still surviving all over the garden but it has been spreading like mad the last couple of years so Mrs Shiney has filled a wheelie bin with them
                  P1500200.JPG

                  Still flowering since Spring 2019 :rolleyespink:
                  P1500202.JPG

                  As is this
                  P1500203.JPG

                  and this Bowles mauve has been flowering non-stop for three years but getting rather woody now
                  P1500206.JPG

                  Heather has just started to flower and will continue to early summer. It spreads like mad and we're forever cutting it back and giving it to people.
                  P1500207.JPG

                  We have to take a hedge cutter to it otherwise it blocks the path and the lawn
                  P1470513.JPG

                  When I was working I used to give it to some of my Romany customers.

                      A series of little jobs in the garden led to an amble around the garden to see how Winter was taking effect in the borders......
                      My favourite of all the Hollys is the HedgeHog Holly which has been in the garden for at least 20 years but never got too big although it has had a prune or two over the years.]upload_2020-11-22_14-52-20.png

                      I'm surprised that the Lavender is still flowering but I love the scent when you run your fingers
                      over it.

                      The Sedum is still providing that patch of colour that we need to brighten up the borders right now
                      upload_2020-11-22_15-38-5.png

                      This clump of Cyclamen was the one I thought had no chance in the area underneath the Garrya "James Roof" but they've proved me wrong.

                      The Garrya "James Roof" putting out it's glorious Catkins which make it such a great evergreen

                      The old Bird Bath in the "wilder" part of the borders hasn't needed filling for months.

                      In the Green House the Bougainvillea just keeps on flowering while I've been feeding it with some ericaceous fertiliser. I did expect that with this cold weather it would have finished but, no, it's carrying on.

                        The Succulent pots are still fine although I must must move them all into the Green House before the Frosts really arrive.

                          The half Oak Barrel by the Kitchen Door with the Rose "White Skyliner" in it still has colour thanks to the Cyclamen.

                          The Mahonia is flowering well and you can smell the scent 6' away.

                            Fungi, just found this yesterday, it's about 12 inches tall, firm to the touch; I'm thinking a distorted puff ball, anybody have a better idea?
