Kiwi harvest coming up

There is an abundance of kiwi's again. I am picking them in the last week of November and the last ones on December fifth, the kiwi's above our extension.

I pick about four fruit boxes full. The jam is still to be made (Dec 10)

These chrysants are standing on the corner near the kitchen. The whole summer there was the promiss of what would come in autumn. In September I started to doubt whether it would every happen. But here it is!! Light purple with yellow harts.

I had bought this one last year. After it flowered, lots of little plants shoot up at the base. I should have separated them, but didn't. Now they are stalks , while I probably should have topped them for bushy look. So hard: topping!

We have too much of this stuff, but it is to be said: a beautiful color and nice flower. Just one plant would be enough....

The rear of the garden

This picture gives a nice view of the rear of the garden. The sun shines through the Hazelnuts bush. The Conifers I will try to cut back a bit this winter.

More paving fun!!

Margrites and Cosmos

The Margrites and the Cosmos keep on going. The Cosmos will finally give way to the rain in a couple of weeks.

Huge leaves of the Plane-tree.
