It’s official, we just had the wettest Summer ever on record !!!! and it shows in the garden, there is not much that survived elegantly and Autumn has been here for a few weeks now, but I am not complaining. There is still a lot of beauty in the garden.
Here are a few pictures I took today and earlier this week.
MY ALBIZZIA IS STILL BLOOMING LIKE MAD
FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA MAGELLANICA BLOOMS FROM JUNE TILL NOVEMBER/DECEMBER DEPENDING ON THE FROST
TRICYRTIS IS DOING VERY WELL
ROSA THE PILGRIM
SUNFLOWERS ARE SUCH STRONG FLOWERS AND SOOOOO BEAUTIFUL WHEN THE SUN SHINES, CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THEM
THIS SKIMMIA white kew IS NOT FLOWERING BUT IT IS ALREADY IN BUD AND WILL STAY LIKE THIS UNTIL IT BLOOMS IN JANUARY OR FEBRUARY
THE PASSIONFLOWER IS STILL BLOOMING AWAY AND PRODUCED LOTS AND LOTS OF FRUIT, ALAS NOT REALLY FOR EATING
ANOTHER FUCHSIA, THIS ONE IS CALLED FUCHSIA TOM POES (MEANS TOM THE CAT) FUNNY NAME FOR A FLOWER !!!! I HAVE A SOFT SPOT FOR THE WHITE ONES
ANEMONE JAPONICA HONORINE JOBERT
Have a great Sunday all and may next week be awesome ! Thanks for visiting !
When I was looking at the back wall of my house I saw my Passiflora Caruleum and one of my clematis Etoile Violette holding each other and I thought ; well this looks like a match made in heaven. They are clinging on to each other nicely. Although the passion flower is a vigorous grower it does not suffocate the clematis.
And now the passion flower is getting fruits, when ripe they’ll get a bright orange colour.
The rose you can see here is a rambler called Francis E. Lester and it has selfseeded in my skimmia White Kew bush , I don’t have the heart to remove it so I keep it small. Don’t they look good together !!!!! Also a match made in heaven if you ask me. Plants are soooooo clever !
Have a great weekend all ! And thanks for stopping by !
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER I HAVE A ROSEMARY BUSH IN BLOOM
MY AMELANCHIER IN FULL BLOOM, THE BUZZING OF THE BEE’S IS AWESOME

CALTHA PALUSTRIS (MARSH MARIGOLD) GROWS IN THE MARSH PART OF OUR POND, THE YELLOW OF THE FLOWERS IS SO BRIGHT YOU NEED SUNGLASSES TO LOOK AT IT !
WHITE FLOWERING PIERIS
There are more blooms in my garden at the moment but I’ll show them next time. Everything is growing so fast, especially the weeds, so there is a lot of work to do in the garden at the moment, I don’t know where to start as all jobs are urgent ! That’s cos of the beautiful weather we have had and still have. It is such a joy to be able to eat on the terrace again with view on the garden, the warmth of the sun, the bee’s buzzing….
Guess what I am going to do today !?
I hope you’ll all have a great Sunday ! Enjoy your garden !
Today, Sunday the 2nd of February the sun is shining and I got my camera and went into my garden to take some pictures, what I saw amazed me. We have the softest Winter ever and a lot of my tender plants are still outside in the garden and now I noticed they have new growth, I just couldn’t believe my eyes !
THIS IS A FUCHSIA WHO IS ALREADY GETTING NEW LEAFS WHILE STANDING OUTSIDE IN THE GARDEN
THIS IS A SMALL TWIG OF MY FIG TREE AND IT IS ALREADY SHOWING NEW BUDS AND NEW FIGS

MY WHITE FLOWERING PASSIONFLOWER WHO I PLANTED LAST YEAR IN SUMMER BUT DIDN’T BLOOM YET IS GETTING NEW LEAFS !!!

THERE ARE LOADS OF BUDS ON MY AMELANCHIER
HERE YOU CAN SEE THIS IVY IS AWAKE AND GROWING AGAIN
I am ofcourse very happy to see so many signs of Spring but…if Winter decides to pay us a late visite all this will get damaged, so far the weather forecast for the next 2 weeks is ok, about 7 C° during the day and between 2 C° and 5 C° during the nights. We did get lots and lots of rain so far this Winter, no snow yet and I hope we can keep it this way, please keep your fingers crossed !!!
Have a great Sunday all and thanks for stopping by !
