Through the Garden Gate November 2021

Looking back on the images taken in the garden this month shows how things have been dying back and leaves have now fallen leaving bare branches. 

We have also had a few mornings of frost and all the tender plants such as pelargoniums have been moved into the greenhouse and conservatory. We have also planted winter lettuce and kale in the green house and have had a few pickings, we have even still been enjoying a few cherry tomatoes (protected in the greenhouse by bubble wrap), although the taste isn't any where near as good as in the summer.

 The marigolds have still been flowering most of the month.

The large herbaceous border is well past its best and our thoughts and efforts have turned to spring by planting lots more bulbs, it always seems such a job when you suddenly realise how many you have actually bought!

With the garden looking less attractive our attention has been drawn further afield - one evening the   moon appeared just out of reach at the top of the meadow...

Alerted by Tavi we were delighted once again to see this pair of roe deer appear in the meadow too, we hadn't seen them since last winter!

We don't usually expect see so many leaves on the trees at the end of November, so over the last couple of weeks we have enjoyed a few walks in the woodlands close-by, enjoying the colours while they last.

The sunrises have been equally spectacular this one taken yesterday morning from our lounge window with a long lens!

It is always wonderful to see other gardens from around the world and share our love of gardening. If you want to join in with Through the garden gate please let me know in the comments below and I will add you below. 

Have a good month, thanks for visiting!


  1. I love the light through the trees in your photos.

    Our garden is covered in snow. We put it to bed yesterday as the snow started to fall, the latest we’ve ever done it. I dislike this process since spring is so far away.

  2. Cherry tomatoes wrapped in bubble wrap! That is a new one on me and something I am tempted to try next year.

  3. I used to keep some tomatoes plants in the greenhouse till Christmas, the taste of the fruits wasn’t good, but they were still a welcome addition to winter salad. Beautiful pictures of autumn trees!

  4. I’ve been rewatching Broadchurch recently and enjoying your beautiful scenery. Amazing that roe deer get so close. Lovely to see them. And your fabulous sunrise view. B x

  5. The moon and the silhouette of the meadow plants makes a spectacular picture!
