october light. temp. yesterday 26C the sky an intense blue between the milky pale of summer and the cold azure of winter. if weather doesn't change soon will have torn up the entire garden.
surface scattered seeds in august, plants are a couple of inches tall now. pull most of them but grow them in fairly large clumps(5 or 6 plants fairly closely planted) to avoid the spot of color look which is about my least favorite. last year most of them were purple or red-the year before mostly chrome yellow-next spring-who knows?
a 7 ft. marigold my garden has turned orange to celebrate halloween
autumn jungle-good for you lizzie
score!!!!!!!!! 3 gal. aralia sun king $4.38 and absolutely beautiful. considering how much I spend on the garden, it's amazing how I love a bargain.
worlds largest spider-kinda pretty though
lesley just saw your fuchsia-more pretty than pretty-when i grow them here they always look as though they wish they could move somewhere else-scotland perhaps. a small project has metastasized so whole garden is bugger all-but next spring it will be worth it.
bidens reseeded around and about for the first time for me this year. i'm leaving them in the ground so will be interested to see what happens.
containers love the great weather and who could resist mums and primulas at a dollar a pot?
agave neomexicana with salvia argentea
rejuvenated back garden beds filling up with seedling wallflowers, hesperis, lunaria,salvia turkestanica and nepeta nepetoides. really too much of some very .good things
