Today is Sunday and it is a nice day although the weather is about to change, but till now it is very nice to be out in the garden, I’m still ill so I can’t do much but I’m going slowly, everything that I can do now is done as the forcast for tomorrow and Tuesday is 100% chance of rain, oh yes ! everything is soooo dry after all the rain we had lately that we need more ! NOT !!!
I just walked arround my garden with my camera and I took shots of what is in bloom at the moment, so here we go.
I HAVE 2 OF THESE PLANTERS ON THE WINDOWSILL FACING THE GARDEN, IT’S A COMBINATION OF FELICIA, MILLIONBELL’S AND A PINK PELARGONIUM
THIS IS THE FIRST BLOOM OF ONE OF MY DAYLILLIES, VERY SOFT YELLOW WITH A DARKER YELLOW HEART AND LOADS AND LOADS OF BUDS, THEY ARE EASY PLANTS AND BLOOM FOR A LONG TIME, AS MY GARDEN IS NOT SO BIG I GO FOR PLANTS THAT FLOWER FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME
THIS IS A BEAUTIFULL GERANIUM BUT I FORGOT THE NAME, IT BLOOMS ENDLESSLY TILL THE FIRST FROST, THEN IT GOES UNDERGROUND FOR THE WINTER,IT IS COMBINED WITH NEPETA BUT THE NEPETA IS NOT BLOOMING YET
THIS IS A DAHLIA IN A POT ON THE TERRACE, I HAVE OTHERS BUT THEY ARE IN THE GARDEN, THEY ARE NOT IN BLOOM YET
MANY PEOPLE FIND DAHLIA’S OLDFASHIONED, I THINK THEY ARE FABULOUS, YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DAHLIA ARRANGEMENTAS OLDFASHIONED OR AS MODERN AS YOU LIKE
ANOTHER GERANIUM, THIS ONE IS RAMPANT AND SELFSEEDS EVERYWHERE BUT YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE THEM WHERE THEY ARE NOT WANTED, THEY ALSO CLIMB IN SHRUBS AND HIGHER PLANTS UP TO ABOUT 1 METER HIGH, WHEN THERE ARE NO HIGHER PLANTS CLOSE BY THEY GROW TO ABOUT 50-60 CM HIGH
GERANIUM SANGUINEUM, ANOTHER LONG BLOOMER, THS IS A LOW PLANT FOR THE FRONT OF THE BORDER, THERE IS A WHITE VARIETY BUT THAT ONE IS A BIT TALLER
ALCHEMILLA MOLLIS OR LADY’S MANTLE
AND ANOTHER PEEK AT A FEW OF MY WINTERHARDY SUCCULENTS
