It is propably a Sedum Telephium L.(I don't know what that 'L' means, large??) In British English Orpine ,US name: Witch's Moneybags! :rolleyes:

It has been crowing at the same place for more than 20 years. I have got to know that it is easy to make more plants: Take a branche, put it in water, after some weeks there are little roots seen, put the branche in a pot with black soil, or plant directly in the garden. This is what I'm going to do. I'll plant this flower to decorate the stone stairs I keep on reconstructing.

The plant looks different, it depends of the plase, dry or wet, rich of minerals or not etc..

Here are pictures, better than mine. The red colour varies:

Of course - Sedum!

Thank you Olga.
My pics are still in the camera.
I think our sedums are about the same colour, but I think mine are a slightly darker red this year, than usual. Other years, they have been more pink.

Yes, it has changed colour a bit here too. It opens the flowers not until September, and many times there has been too cold. But I have never given to this plant nothing, no water, nothing. And it looks better year after year!

I took some pics of the branches I have in water in the kitchen. There seems to quite dark red flowers too, and some arepale rosa.

We should have waited for Bociany for that L. - since it says, I think, that Carl von Linnaeus, or Linné, identified and described that plant species first (and did it correctly - if you don't, your author letter/s get thrown out).
Bociany has said that Linné is one of her scientific heroes :rolleyes:

Another around the world identification -- rather amazing isn't it? I too immediately thought oh wow look here are the same flowers again.


And Olga your old pup is so beautiful and cute -- I think it is possible to be both.

Alice, please will you indulge a Brit of the old school?

What does Cute mean? Obviously I have seen it used many times, but I wouldn't know exactly when to use it myself!

Is it sweet, adorable, cuddly, or something else?

Yes that is it, cute=sweet, adorable and cuddly. Babies are always cute (I suppose there might be an exception) so big eyes are a sign of cuteness. (I think it has come to be associated with overly sweet "stuff," think "hello kitty!") But I only meant in the sense of seeming sweet and cuddly while beautiful has a sense of elegance to it, so the two terms are a little bit at odds. And that "pup" is both beautiful, and sweet and cuddly (cute) looking. Bear cubs are cute -- Knut was a prime example of that.

Anyhow that is my definition.

25th October.

Some pictures of garden at 16:00.
Bushes of th white roses are brown. Only one little part is reddish this year. Dark violet lilacs are green. It's raining.

Image

The lake is seen there behind now that birtches have no leaves that much. The brownish 'something' seen to the right is my dog.

Image

The hazel in the corner of garden has only some few leaves left. Well, there are 23 leaves left 8-)

It's fall :wave:

The apple tree is yellow!

Image

All leaves of the lilacs have fallen.

Image

The hazels are bare, and maples, birches and rowans too.. The little road is seen there down our little hill..A squirrel hurries to hide the nuts he/she has brought from the feeder.

Image

The squirrel :laugh:
