After a long time of dry and hot weather we finally get some much needed rain for nature. I had my hands full with watering the garden and all my plants in pots. I planted many new plants and shrubs in the garden so they needed extra care and I used large umbrella’s to protect my plants as the heath was burning the leafs and the flowers. But so far I kept them all alive.
Here’s a peek in my garden :
THE SUNNY BORDER
THE MORNING SUN SHINING ON THE SHADY BORDER
THE PASSIONFLOWER WITH CLEMATIS ETOILE VIOLETTE
THE SUCCULENTS ARE THRIVING OFCOURSE
GOLDENROD (SOLIDAGO) IN COMBINATION WITH VERBENA BONARIENCIS
ONE OF THE FEW HYDRANGEA FLOWERS THAT I HAVE BECAUSE MANY FLOWERS WERE FROZEN TO DEATH WHEN WE HAD LATE FROSTS IN SPRING
AND THE AUTUMN ANEMONES ( ANEMONE JAPONICA) ARE ALREADY IN BUD !!!
I hope you are all enjoying your gorden or terrace and thanks for visiting !
HERE YOU CAN SEE MY YELLOW CANNA’S, BEHIND THE CANNA’S YOU CAN SEE A FUCHSIA BUSH, ON THE RIGHT YOU CAN SEE VERONICA VIGINICUM AND ON THE LEFT A BUTTERFLY BUSH
TOO MUCH TO NAME THEM ALL, IN THE BLUE POT YOU CAN SEE A MINI PETUNIA AND THE PLANT IN THE TERRACOTTA POT IS AN AEONIUM, THEY ARE ALL BAKING IN THE SUN
AND ANOTHER VIEW IN THE MIRROR, THE FENCE IS STILL NEW, WHERE THE FENCE IS WE USED TO HAVE A HUGE CONIFER HEDGE BUT OUR NEW NEIGHBOURS WANTED A FENCE AS ON THEIR SIDE THE CONIFERS WERE BROWN, I AM NOT REALLY HAPPY WITH THE FENCE BUT I HOPE THAT IN A FEW YEARS TIME IT WILL BE COVERED IN PLANTS
A FEW SCCULENTS IN A POT, ON THE RIGHT IS AN AUCUBA JAPONICA, ON THE GOUND YOU CAN SEE GERANIUM MACRORHIZUM AND A FEW SMALL DWARF RHODODENDRONS, ON THE LEFT IS A BIG POT WITH A HOSTA IN THAT IS ABOUT TO FLOWER, THERE IS A SMALL LEAFED IVY GOWING AGAINST THE FENCE, HOPING IT WILL COVER THE FENCE REALLY SOON
CLEMATIS HAGLEY HYBRID WILL ALSO COVER A BIT OF THE FENCE
I hope you’ll all have a great weekend !! And thanks for visiting !
We had such a lovely week so far with lots of sun and finally a bit of warmth we were longing for. And you could see the garden change every day.
