September Garden

 The cat is back but fled when I approached
 Three men and one carpet make the crazy paving even crazier.  And   the carpet had to go back - it had too stiff a backing which made ridges.



 Fuchsia is flooding the garden.  So far I have resisted popping them
The best bet for pots - Nemesia.  It is pretty - comes up year after year and is fragrant.  My number one pot plant.

GORGEOUS! I wonder if fuchsia would grow here in Georgia...

Lovely garden, sugar! xoxo

What a lot of fuchsias! It always dies off in my garden even though I'm pretty sure I buy the 'hardier' version.

Your garden looks all clean and tidy for Autumn already. Well done!

I used to sit in the garden for ages as a kid popping them!!

Just lovely stuff.

Savannah: I would think almost anything would grow in Georgia.
This is very hardy.xoxox

Sablonneuse: it grows like a weed here - as do the Michaelmas daisies.

John: they are difficult to resist once you start:)

Mage: the garden is slowly shutting down for the Fall.

Beautiful flowers!!

Whatever does that mean..."popping them"? I love fuchsia but have never heard of that.

Pat said...

Judy: thanks;)

Granny Annie: difficult to explain
without a close-up but if you look at the flower there is a small bubble in the centre and if you press it it pops. Don't try this at home:)

A beautiful garden AND beautiful weather. We are being spoilt this September, Pat.

That's gorgeous, Pat! Things are starting to slowly change to fall here. A few trees are starting to change from green to yellow. Soon it will be bags and bags of leaves to rake up. It has cooled off quite a bit. Hopefully fall will be long and slow, and winter will be warmer and shorter than last year. I certainly don't want a repeat of that polar vortex that stalled over us for months last winter.

Pat said...

Scarlet: would it be greedy to hope it lasts till the end of September?

Ponita: Yes I think you really deserve to have a milder winter this year. I know what you mean about the leaves - the price we pay for beautiful trees but why do they all seem to fall in my garden?

There's nothing like a gorgeous garden to make a home feel like a haven.

GG: a haven is what it is.
