GOODBYE SUMMER

Summer was odd weatherwise. We had cool, we had hot and very hot. Bone dry but torrential rain once in a while but my garden is looking tatty. A few flowers are still standing but a lot has been scorched by the sun. Today is the last day of Summer weather, as of tomorrow it will gradually cool down and for the next 2 weeks we’ll get lots of rain.

SEDUM SPECTABILE, ALWAYS RELIABLE AND FUN FOR THE BEE’S AND THE BUTTERFLIES
MY FAVORITE SEDUM, SEDUM SPECTABILE ICEBERG
ALWAYS PRETTY, FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA
AUTUMN ASTERS WILL BLOOM TILL FIRST FROSTS
AS YOU CAN SEE, NOT EVERYTHING IS PRETTY IN MY GARDEN, MY CANNA’S WERE BURNED TO A CRISP BUT AS YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE GETTING NEW FRESH LEAFS.
MY FERNS NEAR THE POND
VERONICA VIRGINICA, ALWAYS THIRSTY
AMELANCHIER (SNOWY MISPELUS) LOOSING A LOT OF LEAFS
GERANIUM MACRORRHIZUM, WAS TOTALLY BROWN A WHILE AGO BUT GOT NEW LEAFS LATELY

The groundwater here is historically low, rainy weather is not fun but we need it, every single drop. Our local flora is dying cos they can’t stand the drought.

I hope you are all ok. Keep safe and take care !

WHAT IS STILL BLOOMING IN MY GARDEN TODAY

It definitely is Autumn now, cos of the drought it is early this year. But there still is a lot in bloom right now although you can see the flowers are a bit tired and the leafs are getting brown and yellow here and there. On top of it they had to go without my tlc while I was on holiday in France.

IT’S SEDUM SPECABILE TIME NOW AND I HAVE LOTS OF THEM


FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA BLOOMS FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS

PASSIFLORA CAERULEA
THE ASTERS ARE JUST BEGINNING TO BLOOM
DAHLIA WILL BLOOM TILL THE FROSTS COME
BEGONIA’S STILL DOING REALLY WELL
TAGETES (marigolds)
ROSA GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR IS STILL GETTING NEW BUDS AND ALL

MY FUCHSIA’S IN POTS ARE ALL STILL IN BLOOM
ROSA SEAGULL

On the other hand some plants look tatty, like the ferns, the Amelanchier tree(shadbush or june berry), the lavenders…. But hey, I am not complaining !

I hope you are all well and happy, wherever you are.

IN MY GARDEN TODAY

We have an early Autumn this year, the sun is still shining and the temperatures are still ok but you can see the plants are tired and want to go to sleep. But I still have some colour in the garden too. Here are todays pictures.
