Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – September 2015

GBBD is a monthly meme hosted by May Dreams Gardens and gives us a great insight into what is going on in other gardeners’ gardens around the world.  I don’t contribute regularly but always take a look over the garden fence, so to speak, to peek at what others are growing at this time of the year. Along with note books, memes are an invaluable diary to look back on.

The weather overnight has been awful with high winds and heavy rain.  I was fully expecting everything to be beaten to the ground this morning and was surprised to see that it was not the devastation I had envisaged.

I checked out my GBBD post for September 2014 and I suppose unsurprisingly the photos I have taken this morning are exactly the same as those in 2014.  From that I can see that nothing is more advanced or behind which is good to know.

Below are the flowers in my garden on 15 September 2015.

Japanese Anemones  


Penstemon ‘Garnet’ and Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ 

Rose ‘Compassion’ 




Passion Flower



The poor old cosmos seem to have taken most of the weather beating but hoepfully they will pick up soon.

Please pay a visit to May Dream Gardens and check out the lovely gardens belonging to bloggers over the world.

  2. Lovely Passion flower, must think about having a go again at those


    1. I bought mine several years ago as a small plant from M&S and grows in a pot in a pot. It makes great camouflage over the water butt in the summer and I cut it right back in spring. It’s in full sun and gets quite a baking, but the snails love it too so the leaves end up looking like doilies


  3. Of course I just had to pop back and check last year 🙂


    1. There are just the same aren’t they LOL 😄😄😄
