September in the garden
The highlight in our garden this month is our Echinacea white swan, the pink version of this flower is more common but I love this variety!
The garden is still full of colour, these flowers below are cuttings from our old garden and they have all grown so well. It's good to see these familiar flowers create a wonderful display here too.
The cosmos I grew from seed and showed you last month is still looking so good!
Our new garden is so much smaller and I was delighted to buy these compact trailing buddelia lavender plants from Sarah Raven that I could grow in a pot. They have only just started to flower and I am hoping that the butterflies and bees will find them too!
The Felicia pink rose has another flush of flowers. When the children were younger we always bought a chocolate cosmos plant as they used to love the smell of chocolate. The velvety burgundy flowers looked stunning in the early morning sunshine. I saw the pink dahlia on a market stall for £3, how could I resist it?
I am also so proud of this dahlias I have grown from seed.
In the vegetable garden the chives are again in flower and we have an abundance of tomatoes from the greenhouse.
The temperature first thing in the morning in the garden is much cooler and the length of the days is decreasing. There seem to be an abundance of berries in the hedgerows although I haven't seen many ripe blackberries here, have you ?
What is your favourite plant at the moment?
Until next time.
