Earlier this week I moved all the tender container plants inside. All that is left on the balcony now are the roses, a bigleaf hydrangea, and a few perennials, namely Hosta plantaginea and Petasites japonicus var. giganteus. All of these are normally hardy here, but seeing as they are in containers on a second-floor balcony I might bring them inside and put them in a cold, dark corner for the coldest part of winter just to be on the safe side. The sunroom, meanwhile, looks lusher than ever.
The sunroom the other day - when there was sunshine, rather than yesterday and today's gloomy darkness and torrential rain
On a separate note, happy Deepavali/Diwali everyone! दीपावली की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ!
