Fuchsia’s look like dancing ballerina’s with a colorful dress, you cannot but love them and they are really easy plants, they are a bit tender and most are shade loving and like a bit of moist but some like a spot in the sun and others are really very winterhardy. But they all look pretty !

I have 2 passionflower plants in my garden, the passiflora caerulea and the passiflora constance eliott. But the caerulea is comming up everywhere, the birds like to eat from the passionfruit and drop seeds in the garden and voilà,you have a strong growing new plant, they are everywhere, despite the heathwaves we have had.
THIS IS THE PASSIFLORA CAERULEA
WE CAN’T KEEP UP REMOVING THE NEW PLANTS.( here he made himself a home in a bush)
(here he found a nice place in an ivy)
(and here he seeded himself under a tree in a big tongue fern)
IT IS DEFINITELY A PLANT FOR THE NOT SO GREENFINGERED AMONGST US !!
Have a great day !
When the flowers of the sedum spectabile are opening it is a sign of Autumn comming closer. The days are definitely shorter, the evenings colder but after the crazy hot Summer we had I am welcomming Autumn for once, normally I am not so keen. The garden is a mess with burned plants and leafs but the sedum spectabile is looking good, ofcourse being a succulent it loves warm dry weather. And this plant is a heaven for bees and butterflies.

Ten (10) weeks ago I looked like this ;

Have a great Sunday all and thanks for your visit !!
My poor garden, burned to a crisp !!! We had such hot weather lately, up to 38 C°, and a lot of my plants are burned. And as we have a severe water shortage as well we can’t water the garden. It breaks my heart to look at it ! It looks like Autumn even though it is only the beginning of August !!
