Whoa September.........you're spinning by far too fast for me!
This month is bringing lots of beauty to the garden as we have at last had rain. Heavy downpours lasting hours, even much of an entire day, and drizzly moments in between.
Although the yellow angel trumpets tooted happily in the early part of Summer, very unusual, they have now put on their more usual early Fall show and are magnificent. Yesterday, when I took these photos, there were dozens of blooms open and a lot of buds coming along. It may bloom well into October.
Sweet potato vine still spreading ~ Knockout rose blooming ~ sad looking patchy grass from our very hot Summer!
This is a tall shrub, now about 5 years old. Tropical in some parts, here it requires heavy pruning down to the ground before Winter. I mulch with compost and fallen leaves and always hope to see it sprouting new growth come Spring. So far it's done extremely well and even better since the huge oak tree next to it was removed last year.
More from the cottage garden soon.
What's growing in your garden right now?
