It is definitely Autumn and the garden is not really pretty but here and there are blooms and pretty leafs. Autumn is not my favorite season as we can’t sit in the garden or eat on the terrace, it will take about 7 months for us to do that again.
FUCHSIA’S, FOR ME ONE OF THE PRETTIEST POTPLANTS WHO GO ON BLOOMING TILL THE FIRST FROSTS.
THE BERRIES OF ILEX OR HOLLY, THIS ONE HAS NO SPINES AS YOU CAN SEE
FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA MAGELLANICA, IS A BUSH AND GROWS IN THE GARDENSOIL AS IT IS VERY WINTERHARDY AND ONE OF THE EASIEST PLANTS I KNOW
THE LAST OF THE VERBENA BONARIENSIS IN FRONT OF MY FIG TREE, SELFSEEDS EVERYWHERE
PASSIONFLOWER CONSTANCE ELLIOT BLOOMS AND BLOOMS AND IS UNSTOPPABLE AS IS HER SISTER PASSIONFLOWER CAERULEA
AND A SMALL LEAFED IVY THAT IS FRESH GREEN IN SUMMER AND NOW COLOURED FOR WINTER
Thanks for stopping by, it’s much appreciated !
It is that time of the year again, the part I don’t like as now we have to wait for 7 months before Spring arrives ! It is time to spent with my indoorplants and give them a little tlc. Summer was odd to say the least, it started really late and then we had a few weeks of hot weather, but now the Summer has ended and we had the first night frosts. So I have been busy to put the tender plants inside eventhough some are still blooming nicely.
The sedum spectabile is one of the last plants to bloom in my garden and the passionflowers ofcourse.
Here are a few pictures.
SEDUM SPECTABILE IS A REAL ATTRACTION FOR THE BUTTERFLIES
THIS IS THE WHITE VERSION OF THE SEDUM SPECTABILE.
PASSIFLORA CAERULEA IS ONE OF THE STRONGEST PASSIONFLOWERS FOR THE NORTH OF EUROPE AND BLOOMS FOR A VERY VERY LONG TIME.
THE WHITE CONSTANCE ELLIOTT IS LESS HARDY BUT WITH A BIT OF PROTECTION IT WILL OVERCOME A HARD WINTER
Have a nice day all and thanks for visiting.
