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.

I must add that he is getting a lot of sun as we are having a long hot and dry Summer and hardly any rain, ideal for a cactus.
Yesterday we had a bit of rain, not nearly enough to help end the drought we suffer from at the moment. But I am happy with every drop that we get. We are not used to this kind of tropical temperatures , neither are the gardens over here so the gardens are suffering, a lot of leafs and flowers are burned from the sun.
Have a great day all and thanks for visiting !
Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, not too warm, just the way I like it. So I took my camera en took a few shots.
