We have a few nice days at the moment so I thought it was ideal to take a few pictures. It is definitely Autumn but there is still some beauty left.
YELLOW POMPON DAHLIA, YELLOW ALWAYS BRINGS A BIT OF SUN IN THE GARDEN EVEN ON A RAINY DAY
VERBENA BONARIENSIS IS GOING ON AND ON AND SELFSEEDS ALL OVER THE GARDEN
BEGONIA AND BUZZY LIZZY STILL LOOK GOOD AT MY FRONT DOOR
THERE ARE STILL A FEW GERANIUM FLOWERS LEFT
PROBABLY THE LAST FLOWER OF THE PILGRIM ROSE
THIS RUSSIAN VINE IS RACING THROUGH MY GARDEN
ROSA GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR STILL BUDDING AND FLOWERING AND SMELLING OF ROSES
AND THE GARDEN POND URGENTLY NEEDS A GOOD CLEAN AS THE PLANTS HAVE TAKEN OVER AND THE FISH NEED A BIT OF SPACE TO SWIM
I hope you enjoyed this little trip through my Autumn garden, I did !
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can still enjoy your garden !
SEEDS OF RICINUS COMMUNIS
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.
STILL LOTS OF BUDS ON THE GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR
FALSE STRAWBERRY (potentilla indica)
MY ALCHEMILLA IS TIRED AND WANT TO GO TO SLEEP AS YOU CAN SEE….
Thanks for visiting ! Have great day !
We just came back from a holiday in the South of France. France is one of our neighbouring countries and to go there is about 1100 kilometers.I would advice you not to go there in July and August unless you really have too as it is the summerschoolholiday for the whole of Europe then. But France is amazing and I am not surprised it gets the most tourists in the whole world !!! Personally I prefer the South, the Provence and the Cote d’Azur.
But hey, I think you want the pictures, not my bragging. So here they come.
We visited a special garden, it was the garden of a monastery in Mane ; Jardins de Salagon.
FROGS IN THE POND
PART OF THE OLD MONASTERY
DETAILS OF THE WALLS
THE FOLLOWING PICTURES WERE TAKEN IN THE GARDENS
IT WAS DEFINITELY PUMPKIN TIME IN FRANCE, THEY WERE EVERYWHERE
FIGS EVERYWHERE IN THE SOUTH, REALLY EVERYWHERE !!!
THE WILD PIGS RUINED ALL THE GARDEN PATHS THE NIGHT BEFORE OUR VISIT.
As you can see is was definitely Autumn in the South of France, earlier than usual cos of the severe heath and drought they had for months on end. Here too we have an early Autumn.
There is more to come about our vacation in France so if you are interested watch my blog.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
