Should these still be in flower?

I have always enjoyed gardening, I think it is partly the pleasure of watching something grow from a tiny seed into something beautiful, the wonderful colours of nature and the scent that the plants produce, never cease to amaze me.  I am what I call a slap happy gardener, I plant things because I like them, I don't think about positions they will like my garden I put them where I want them or where there is a space, nothing gets taken in during the winter they have to fend for themselves - in fact I'm a pretty bad gardener - but hey they all come back every year so they can't be that unhappy can they!!  Anyway whilst looking around the garden this week I noticed that all my fushcia's are in full bloom,  I can't help but think it is too late for them, I mean it is November after all, shouldn't they be dieing off now??  Here's pic to show you what I mean.  All gardening tips greatfully received. :)

I should dedicate this post to my friend Kathi who really isn't a flower person -  but tolerates my love of them ;)  she also kindly let me eat my pack lunch in her kitchen today whilst I was at work..... thank you, and her son, Ross makes a super cup of tea :)
