Leaving the September garden. . . . . . . . . . .

Just a few quick clipping and tidying chores, along with minimal pruning of the
 unruly jasmines on the front porch, and that's it for gardening around
 here. . . . . . well at least until the very end of the month. The grass was cut on
 Monday and, as the weather continues hot and dry, should not require any care
 until we return.

Twirling Clematis seed pods.

Bumble bees still feasting on the Pentas, white and pink.

Always sad to leave the garden no matter the season.
It should have much more of an Autumnal feel when we return.


  1. Wonderful photographs Mary ...... our garden is going over now and doesn't look it's best although there is still some colour. XXXX

  2. Your September garden is a beautiful place. Bon voyage, dear Mary, have a most wonderful trip! I look forward to your stories and photos upon your return.

  3. Have a wonderful trip! I am looking forward to hearing all about it.

  4. Beautiful photos! Fall is here, winter is next step and I am waiting for summer already!

  5. Yes, the garden will begin it's transition while you are gone. Happy travels, dear friends!

  6. The white Pentas are gorgeous. There sure is a different look to the garden now.

  7. I've started cutting back and tidying the borders ready for winter now but sedums,asters and crocosmias are still providing splashes of colour. Autumn is definitely here though the weather is still warm and mostly dry. Bob voyage.

  8. The photos of your garden look lovely. have a fantastic trip, looking forward to seeing lots of photos.

  9. Great trip Mary and Bob - take care - enjoy yourselves, and don't forget to draw those curtains whilst showering.
