We have just enjoyed our first summer's day this year. Hooray! A stunning 26 degrees Celcius.
But already some plants are over and gone. And the hours of darkness are definitely getting longer.
What plant is the first one that heralds the end of summer for you? For me it is seeing the buds of the Sedum spectabile begin to colour. Fortunately, the buds are still pale green. Time for another spritzer.
I was thinking of making a bonfire of mine today, and then I saw two miniature beans, all of 1 cm long. Two beans!!!! I'll give them another chance.
Waite till you see them up high and glow. you will never forget and ever find them in the garden.
(tin hat on, now)
I can hear coming!
Pansy face.......your first summer's day?? It's been summer here for weeks.
However, I guess high summer is when heleniums, dahlias, agastaches, cannas and most else come together in an explosion of colour. So.....few more days yet.
Our first summer's day, yes.
Edd, you are way ahead of me.....
When the sun goes down and they become summer nights....oh oh those summer ni-iiightsssss (sorry that is meant to be a tribute to Grease....couldn't resist ) I think the us has affected me
It's OK OL, I like that song.
That should have said 'sun has affected me' Glad you like it Pansy but just as well you can't hear me singing it
..I tend to think summer is over when the Last Night of the Proms takes place...
..it hasn't long started, so we've a way to go yet...lol...
I would offer my body for a bucket of snow!
