Autumn in my garden, come take a walk...

26 comments


Despite having a lack of both sunshine and rain, I’m pleased with the garden, some flowers opened early but are still going strong and others, Cosmos especially, have taken an age to open, below is my new long border that I did this year, think I can say it is a success.. Ignore the pink Cosmos it was s’posed to be a white bunch…


A selection of blooms in the first bed, second time this year for the Delphiniums….


The pond bed is not very colourful at the moment but still looks good, its between flowers now, happens every year..

This bare corner is where I had to remove all the Iris to remove the wild geum, its taking time to fill in again due to the lack of rain in recent weeks, I’ve now added fresh compost and its been raining at long last so I’ll have another go at filling it in again…

The bed between the pond and g’house, looked glorious when the Solidago and Phlox were in flower, as you can see its now the turn of the pinks..

My potted area for shrubs that won’t grow in the garden…


Across the bottom lawn to the stumpery, the new ferns in the new bit are coming along and the climber growing up the washing post is growing well and just coming into flower, hostas are going over now but have been grand…


Finally the bottom pond and my Acers..


Phew !!!! hope I haven’t worn you out..x

Thank you for the tour, Sue. You have a lot of gorgeous colour in your garden - most of my colour has now gone.
The pond area is looking great and full of interest, it doesn’t always need colour to look so good!
My sedum is getting ready to fully bloom, yours is a lovely pink. Love the Japanese anemone too - lots of pretty flowers. Your beds are still filled with abundant flower!

Gorgeous delphiniums! You have lots of interesting places to take people by surprise! I love the acer collection too - do you have to move them into shelter for winter? Its too windy for them here so I have to just enjoy other peoples!

I loved my autumn walk in your garden Sue. Thank you. Your new border is beautiful. All that hard work has paid off.

Lovely cottagey borders with lots of colour. Thanks for showing. What's the secret with keeping your acers happy in their pots, Lincs? I have some babies that could do with some TLC.

Thank you so much for the trip around your garden Sue. You work so hard and it shows in every picture. The Delphiniums are fantastic, how do you keep the slugs off them when they're still small?

Lovely autumn garden Lincslass. Thanks for sharing.

Thankyou Kate, I agree as regards the pond, as you can see the colour and textures of the leaves provide the colour and interest. The sedum started out as one small piece and now I have it everywhere, I have tried many times over the years to get a dark leafed one without success, just refuses to grow no matter which area I try...

Hello Sue, I'm a bit concerned about where to put my Acers for this winter, the old conifers used to give them some protection from the wind, I'm hoping the spreading Juniper and the remaining conifer will still be enough to act as a barrier, only time will tell, the Delphiniums have been doing me proud for many years now, I did add a white one this year but its just gone over...

Thanks Eileen, the border worked out a treat, I've been scattering seedheads all along it so hoping it will be just as colourful next springtime, I have a strip nearer to the yard, where I placed my Abelia and a Hebe, its a right pain when I'm cutting the grass so I'm now thinking of removing said grass and planting this end up as well..

Thankyou Anget, the beds and borders are a lot easier to cope with since I added all the perennials, in fact it was the best decision I ever made and I like the cottage effect.. I don't think there is a secret to my Acers apart from keeping them away from the wind and also too much sunshine, especially the dark leaved ones, they don't take kindly to sunburn, dappled shade is ideal, I only ever tried growing one in my garden and it died within two years after being happy in its pot for five years, never again, they are too expensive to replace....

Julia its really weird, there are hundreds of snails amongst my edging stones that surround the bed but not many slugs, I've never lost my plants in that section, however they stripped my petunias from around the border in just one night, I think my frog family sort them out for me.

Balcony its my pleasure, you are very welcome and thankyou...

Hello Klahanie, I love autumn both in my garden and the surrounding countryside, hoping it doesn't pass by too quickly, I'd like to hang onto all the colours, I bet its lovely where you live ..

Just a thought - could you make a windbreak using fleece and some uprights (like those you see on the beach)?

Enjoyed the tour of your lovely garden, thank you for sharing it with us.

20 Sep, 2021

 

Your garden is so interesting Sue, with so many different parts, it was lovely to have a look around :)

20 Sep, 2021

 

Stera if neccessary that is what I will do, I don't have fleece but I have the green netting that is used in the g'house during the height of summer for shading, I think that will be just as good, can make tents can't I, your mind works along the same lines as mine, thankyou for the suggestion, much appreciated..x

Hello F'few, I'm glad you liked my tour..

Hiya Hywel, pleased you enjoyed a wander, I like my hidden areas, people have to take a walk to see them.
Now I'm trying to figure out where to hide my barrow, roller and spare bins, we need such things but I dislike them showing, hubby doesn't know it yet but think I'm going to ask him to build me a new cubby, that will please him as he won't see why I'd want one, lol....

21 Sep, 2021

 

We gardeners know exactly what we want don't we Sue lol :D

I certainly enjoyed the wander, always lovely to see someone else’s garden. I particularly like the first picture, very colourful.

Looks wonderful Lincslass :-)

Hywel I knew you'd understand, lol....

Amsterdam , that one is my new border, its really done me proud, although they cannot be seen at the moment I also have some shrubs growing there, I need more bulbs to plant between them, I scattered Nigella, Aquilegia and Poppies so hopefully come next spring it will look just as good..

Thankyou Daylily..
