The secret to good warm weather in September is to clear out your summer wardrobe and air the heavier tog duvet. Once you have done all this you will then have an Indian Summer. Yesterday and today have been glorious gardening days. I have sorted out some pots that were looking tatty and this afternoon I mowed the lawn. The garden looks spruced up and shipshape. Although there is a lot of green, some colour remains in the garden and, armed with my camera, I fought my way through the plethora of spiders webs…my head is still itching… to take photos of the flowers gracing the flowerbeds.
Some of the pics were sadly out of focus so I have ditched the white Gaura, the Fuchsia and the Cleome along with a couple of others. Oh, the Sweet Peas ‘Beaujolais’ were picked yesterday to take to my Mum so there were none left to photograph, I am hoping for one more picking.
Below are the flowers left adorning my garden in the middle of September.
I am busy now looking at bulb catalogues and planning my winter and spring planting which is always exciting.
