Still a nice lot of colour there Slad I've noticed several plants are reblooming ,I was interested to see your Harebell mine has given a wonderful show this year with lots of flowers still in bloom .........

It's often difficult to spend lots of time on here SL. A sign of how good our summer was and everyone catching up on jobs to do, I think.
You've a fair bit of colour still going on. My garden was looking good up until yesterday - temperatures plummeted and wind is so strong.
Don't be a stranger for too long :)

Nice to see your plants doing well into the autumn. I hope you get some more weeks' pleasure from them :o)

Love the schizostylis. It looks very exotic.
How are you growing it in the pond? As a marginal? Does it need sunshine or will it tolerate shade?

13 Oct, 2013


In spite of autumn you still have a lot of going on in your garden. I like Morning Glory, too. But most of all from this set of pics I liked schizostylis coccinea. Beautiful.

Thanks all, hi Scottish it's been a bit wild down here the last couple of days hope it's not to bad up there.

Amy I do love the harebell they are such good bloomers.

Urbanite yes I grow it as a marginal, it goes really well there and flowers every year..

Thanks Kat it's one of my fav marginal plants :-)

Hello Surrylad...glad you have a bit of time to share your garden with us all. I am sure that my Campanula don't look like yours as in they have bigger flowers and are mauve. Morning Glory was my mother's favourite plant so I need to get some as you have brought it back to my memory today...thanks.

Hi gorgeousma thanks I'm glad it brought you a nice memory.

You`ve really captured some great looking plants. We have been lucky this year having some decent weather and so prolonging their flowering. My favourite of all has got to be the Schizostylis and I also like to see the seedheads of plants especially in the frosty winter months. Hope you always have time to share your garden with us.

Love the pale blue Plumbago ... and the 'losing hair' comment on the Echinops! :o)
