I don’t like it but it is true, the first signs of Autumn are visible in the garden and in the air, you can already smell it and the nights are almost cold. The leaves of the trees and shrubs are looking a bit tired, the sedums have buds who start to colour, the spiders ( those with the cross on their backs who are only visible late in Summer and in Autumn) are weaving their nets….I am not a fan of Autumn however beautiful it can be. We have had quite a bit of sun lately with showers now and again so everything has been growing like mad.
One of the fasted growers in my garden is the Russian vine(polygonum aubertii) over here we call it “brides veil” my husband uses this climber to give to his birds otherwise it would not have been in my garden, it is just too big, we have to cut it down every year in Spring otherwise it takes over the whole garden !!! But it is pretty and the flowers last for a very long time !

ANOTHER FAST GROWER IS PASSIFLORA CAERULEA, I BOUGHT THIS PLANT ONLY ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO AND ALREADY IS HAS GROWN ABOUT 4 METERS !!! NO SIGN OF FLOWERS YET THOUGH
SEDUM SPECTABILE WILL BE IN BLOOM SOON
