At the moment my climbing rose GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR looks like a lady in a weddingdress who wears a lovely perfume. My whole garden smells of her !
THIS IS HOW SHE LOOKED LIKE ABOUT LESS THAN 2 WEEKS AGO
SHE STARTED SLOW, ONLY A FLOWER HERE AND THERE
A FEW DAYS LATER SHE LOOKED LIKE THIS
AND HERE SHE IS IN FULL BLOOM LOOKING LIKE A REAL BRIDE
HERE YOU GET A CLOSER LOOK AT HER BLOOMS
Have a great weekend all and enjoy your garden if you can, it will make you completely zen. Thanks for visiting !

I haven’t been blogging for a while but I just needed a break. There is so much to do at the moment that I just don’t know what to do first. I think you all know what I mean.
But the roses are starting to bloom so I had to take some pictures for you to see, pitty you can’t smell them !!
ROSA CONSTANCE SPRY ( soft pink climbing rose with horrible thorns !!)
ROSA THE PILGRIM (low yellow climbing rose)
AND LOOK AT ALL THESE BUDS !!!!(climbing rose GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR, half dubble white)
I have more roses in bud so by next week I’m sure they’ll be open, we are having hot and very dry weather, last night we had a thunderstorm with a bit of very welcome rain.
Have a great week and thanks for visiting !
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 !
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 are having a heathwave ! We go from cold to hot in one day, we can’t cope with it nor can the plants. And it has been extremely dry for a while, we live on sandy gound that dries out very quickly.But never the less, I enjoy it, everything grows and grows, with a little help of the waterhose ofcourse. We can eat outside morning, noon and evening with a nice view on the whole garden. What more do you want ??!
THIS IS SPIREA VAN HOUTTE
THE FERNS ARE DOING REALLY WELL
THE FIRST OF THE FUCHSIAS IN BLOOM
