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.

Have a great Sunday all and may next week be awesome ! Thanks for visiting !
We are definitely very close to Autumn, all the signs are there, the leafs are colouring and falling, the fruit is ripe, the spiders, cold nights…..Summer started promising and for a while we had the best weather we could wish but at the end of July it started to cool down a lot and we got loads of rain and thunderstorms who ruined a lot of flowers….alas alas it can not be helped. I took some pictures in my garden yesterday for you to see.
These are the last of my grapes in the greenhouse, I got a lot of grapes this year, they are small but really tasty, the vine is only for the second year in my greenhouse and I am very happy with it !It is called Vitis Muscat bleu.
My passionflower (passiflora caerulea) is doing great, it grows like mad, it still has flower buds, flowers, green fruit and orange ripe fruit. I opened a ripe one up to see what’s inside, well, not a lot, you can’t compare them with the passionfruit you can buy in the shops, but the bit that is inside tastes not bad.
And when these guys are starting to flower well it is definitely Autumn, this is Tricyrtis , also called orchids for the poor as they look like real orchids but are a lot cheaper, at least here in Northern Europe. I’ll try to make more pictures of them when they are in full bloom, they are really pretty and easy plants so I am looking for more of them in different colours.
I love the colour of this dahlia and I hope it will go on flowering for a while, as long as we don’t get frost it will.
Hav e a great weekend and lots of fun in your garden !!!! Thanks for visiting my blog !
