I cannot believe it is August already ! Lately we have had quite a bit of hot weather so everything is growing like mad, however some plants suffer from the heath. The fuchsia flowers and the roses don’t stay fresh for long and I can’t keep up watering all the pots. But I am not complaining as I love being outside, sitting on the terrace and looking at the garden.
The birds and the bees and the butterflies apparently love my garden, they are everywhere but they are very hard to catch on camera. But I am happy to have them in my garden and I love to see they like it.
JUST A FEW DAHLIA’S
I GAVE MY FUCHSIA’S A SHADIER PLACE AS THEY REALLY DON’T LIKE THE HEATH

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend ! Enjoy your garden !
What is going on in my garden at the moment ? Not much really. Each day we get more signs that Autumn is coming closer fast. Today was a nice day with a bit of sun and 23 C°, yesterday it was 17 C° and it was raining very very hard, it’s typical for many Belgian Summers, one day this and the next day something completely different.
But, a miracle has happened with my fig tree, remember when I told you back in May that it only had little green buds instead of being in full leaf ? It has grown sooooo much and there are soooo many figs on it too. They won’t get ripe this year but who knows, I see they are rapidly becoming bigger….When ripe they are not big and bold like the exotic figs but small and yellowish green, red on the inside ofcourse.
THIS WAS MY FIG TREE BACK IN MAY
SEE THE LITTLE BUDS ON IT ?
LOOK AT IT NOW !!!!
LOOK AT ALL THE LITTLE FIGS !
So NEVER give up on a fig tree too soon !!! He was this Winter in my garden, unprotected ,and we had temperatures of -18 C° !!! He is standing against a South faced wall though.
IT’S SEDUM TIME ! A CLOSE-UP OF A FLOWER
