STILL IN BLOOM IN OCTOBER


I haven’t finished with my series “La douce France” but I first wanted to give you an update on what is still blooming in my garden in October.

The pictures I am going to show you were taken last week, 2nd week of October.

We had quite nice weather  up till a few days ago, it started raining Saturday evening and temperatures dropped quite a bit, but hey, what do you expect ? It’s Autumn !

Here are some pictures I took before it started to rain.

After all the rain my garden looks sad now but I am already making plans for next year, and I have loads of pictures of how my garden was in 2013.

Next post will be about France again as I still have a lot of pictures to show you. Have a great day and enjoy your garden or your indoor plants if you don’t have a garden !!!

  1. It looks like you were lucky to have so many beautiful flowers for so long this year. Shame about the rain though. You must work so hard to have a garden that thrives like that.
