ANOTHER WEEK IN THE GARDEN

Another week gone by, a nice week weather wise, not too hot but just nice, no rain no damaging wind…everything is growing nicely and I enjoy sitting on the terrace and watch all the blooms and the garden is looking nice and smelling nice, although there still is a lot of work to do but I need a bit of a break from the hectic weeks we’ve had.

My roses finally found it warm enough to perform !

STIL IN BLOOM IN MY GARDEN

 Although my garden doesn’t look pretty anymore, there still are some blooms left to enjoy. I already removed the tender plants as the temperatures at night are flirting with 0 C°, I hate that ! I also want to move all my hardy succulents into the greenhouse as we had very wet winters the past 3 years, they can withstand the cold very well but they don’t like the combination of the wet and the cold, a lot of my succulents were damaged last winter, I even lost a few !!! so  now want to put them in my greenhouse for overwintering.

A SUNFLOWER IN OKTOBER ? YES, I TOLD YOU BEFORE THAT THE BIRDS DROPPED A FEW SUNFLOWERSEEDS AND A FEW SUNFLOWERS GREW SPONTNEOUSLY, THIS IS THE BIGGEST, IT IS OVER 4 METERS TALL,  BUT I’M AFRAID THE SEEDS WON’T RIPEN ENOUGH FOR THE BIRDS TO EAT, IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE WEATHER BUT RIGHT NOW SHE LOOKS GORGEOUS ! I  FIND IT FASCINATING HOW THEY CAN FOLLOW THE SUN WITH THEIR “FACES”.

GERANIUM ANN THOMSON HAS BEEN BLOOMING SINCE JUNE, WAS DAMAGED BY OUR DOG DURING WINTER AND THERE WAS ONE TINY PLANT LEFT, NOW I HAVE A BIG BUNCH

FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA, ALWAYS A GOOD PERFORMER FROM JUNE TILL THE FIRST FROST, VERY WINTERHARDY, THE BUSH DIES IN WINTER BUT THERE ARE ALWAYS NEW SHOOTS COMMING FROM THE GROUND UP IN SPRING

SOME SORT OF ASTER BUT A REAL BULLY ! I’VE BEEN TRYING FOR YEARS TO REMOVE IT BUT IF A SMALL PIECE OF ROOT BREAKS OFF, YOU GET A NEW PLANT, IT COMES UP EVERYWHERE IN MY GARDEN SO IT SELFSEEDS AS WELL, BUT IT IS A BEAUTY I MUST ADMIT

TRICYRTIS HIRTUS, LOOKS LIKE AN ORCHID, VERY NICE FOR THE AUTUMN GARDEN, I WANT MORE OF THESE !

I BOUGHT SOME YELLOW CHRYSANTHEMUMS AND  LITTLE VIOLA’S TO BRIGHTEN MY FRONT DOOR

REMEMBER THIS WHITE BEGONIA ? IT IS STILL BLOOMING NICELY.

ROSA THE PILGRIMM

THE WHITE BLOOMS IN THE TREE IS A RUSSIAN VINE, IT WAS PLANTED TO COVER THE ROOF OF THE AVIARY BUT NOW IT CLIMBS IN OUR OAK TREE ! I LIKE IT !

REMEMBER  I TOLD YOU IN SPRING I PLANTED SOME DWARF CONIFERS IN MY FROND GARDEN ? WELL THEY WERE SO TINY THAT I DECIDED TO PUT SOME TAGETES INBETWEEN TO GIVE THE PATCH A BIT OF COLOUR, WELL THE TAGETES IS STILL BLOOMING LIKE MAD !

HERE’S ANOTHER LOOK AT THE DWARF CONIFERS, THEY DID WELL THIS SUMMER AND ADDED A BIT OF GROWTH, I NEVER THOUGHT THE TAGETES WOULD BECOME THIS BIG !

A CLOSE-UP OF MY BIG SUNFLOWER

VERBENA BONARIENSIS STILL IN BLOOM, I LOVE THIS PLANT AND SO DO THE BEE’S AND BUTTERFLIES

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST A FUCHSIA CUTTING, CUTE HEY !

Have a great day all, thanks for stopping by and enjoy your garden !
