My autumn colours #1


Wednesday 10 December, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Apart from the beautiful skies of November, our winter is mainly a mixture of sunshine (80%) and storms (20%). However, we do manage to retain a fair degree of colour too, particularly in what the calender says is late autumn.
Whilst we cannot compete with places like New England for their abundance of natural colours, I’ve prepared for you a glimpse of our world here in southwest Türkiye. Here are the colours on the farm at the end of November, early December…




Whilst leaves start to fall, the roses still bloom




Almost ready for the winter cutting back




Bougainvillea seems to flower 11 months a year !




In Turkish we know them simply as “November Flowers”




And so the house is always full too

    The colour of the ‘November flowers’ look so warm in the house.
