Thank goodness for Michaelmas daisies. They have been here forever and appear every year.

The flowers are lovely. Ours are quickly dying off with the frosts.

My damn Michaelmas daisies have also been here since the dawn of time, but the always flower late (not even out yet!) on account of the fact they get bloody mildew every year!

Keith : that's a nuisance. I wonder why?

PI said...

Jack: but you have that lovely clean air and polar bears.

I would think with ALL the rain you have had these past months that everything would be growing wild...! I know that is how it would be here, but maybe it is because our climate is so very different.....
Lovely things blooming, Pat...So different from here, too!
BEAUTIFUL.

Naomi: wild is how I would describe the garden at present.

Mike & Ann said...

It looks a lovely, well stocked, but slightly wild garden. We like it. Ann says " Some tips, please?" Regards, Ann and Mike.

PI said...

Hi Mike and Ann! It is quite wild as a result of both neglect and optimism. I find I haven't weeded all summer and stuff new plants in hoping they will choke the weeds. The wild strawberries can be a nuisance but I try to cut back and tidy when I can. I like to stand and meditate whilst hosing so it gets watered from time to time.

Those daisies made me smile, Pat. It's comforting knowing that they return year after year. The crocuses in our front yard do the same thing, and I feel happy knowing that they'll always be there to mark the return of spring.

I noticed someone missed you at Michele's, so I thought I'd drop by and make up for the miss.

Carmi: well done for scrolling down to the garden. But sometimes plants just give up the ghost for no particular reason, then at least I have space to buy some more.
And you are sweet boy to drop by:)
