JULY FLOWERS

We have a very odd Summer this year, cool and wet so I haven’t as many flowers as usually. Last year it was so hot I spent hours in front of the fan. This year we got airco and voila, we haven’t used it even once 😀 But hey, I am not complaining, I like this cooler weather.

MALVA
DAHLIA
ICE FLOWERS(mesembryantemum)
BEGONIA
ANOTHER DAHLIA
SOON TO BE FLOWERING : CROCOSMIA LUCIFER (bright red)
CUCUMBER HERB.(borage)

I just love the blue flowers of this herb. The plant is not really prettty but the flowers are. And it attracts a lot of bee’s.

I hope you are all well and happy. Take care and thanks for visiting.

FROM BUD TO FLOWER

THIS IS HOW IT STARTED, A NICE FAT DAHLIA BUD ON JUNE 28TH
THE SAME BUD A FEW DAYS LATER ON JULY 1ST, IT ALREADY LOOKS LIKE A FLOWER
AND THIS IS THE FLOWER ON JULY 5TH

I think I just love dahlia’s, I don’t understand why some people say they are old fashioned. And they are sooooo easy to grow !!

Have a great day !

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)

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 BLOOM TODAY

I took some pictures today of the flowers in bloom in my garden. I think June is about the prettiest month of the year.

PINK DAHLIA
GERANIUM

This plant gives me a holiday feeling. It is not really winterhardy over here but wiTH a bit of help it will survive.
