LAST WEEK OF AUGUST


August was a lovely month, lots of sunshine and a good shower or a rainy night once in a while, what more can a gardener want ? Alas August is gone now and September came, the good weather continues, although the days are becoming shorter rapidly, the nights are a lot cooler and breakfast on the terrace is too cold now but the days are just lovely.

I took some pictures last week so you can see what went on in my garden last week.

I HAVE A  WHITE LANTANA CAMARA ON A STEM AND IT HAD SOME SIDE SHOOTS ON THE STEM SO I REMOVED THEM AND MADE A FEW CUTTINGS, THEY ALL GREW INTO NICE PLANTS AND THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN FLOWERING FOR MANY WEEKS

ONE OF MY FUCHSIAS, THEY WILL GO ON BLOOMING TILL THE FIRST FROSTS, I THINK FUCHSIAS ARE JUST LOVELY AND WORTH ALL THE EXTRA WORK AS THEY HAVE TO OVERWINTER IN THE HOUSE ON A COOL DRY PLACE

 

I hope you’ll all have a great week ! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Thank you for sharing your lovely garden. My sedum is looking just like yours – such a great value plant don’t you think? I love the way it turns from that lovely rosy look in September through to the dark colour at the end of the Winter.
