It’s the end of October. Which flowers are still going strong? Your blogging team asked a number of Garden Club members this question. Turns out there are quite a few gorgeous blooms still out there. Here’s a selection of flowers in bloom this past weekend around Powell River.
|Acidanthera bicolour murielae or Peacock flower in Jacquie’s garden.|
