Here`s a picture of the front garden in July, plain window and ugly cat flap and all.....
.....and now in September, same window there somewhere, would love, love, love window panes and maybe shutters. But I took the screen out at least, so no more ugly cat flap until I figure something better out. There`s still not a lot of blooms, but the plants have filled out a lot. And nothing got damaged when Elvis decided to have a nice dig to lie in the dirt when the plants were smaller.
I blamed it on the cats until I caught him red-handed, the devil. A simple scolding brought the funniest look to his face and he never did it again luckily.
I did have a small pot of impatients on the wheel but the cats keep knocking it off into the garden. Maybe next year I can find something small enough not to get in their way and heavy enough not to fall off.
One of my climbing roses that was planted in July actually has more than one bloom at a time on it and the other plant in front is Beard Tongue.
My Sedum is finally going to bloom. I planted this last summer and it`s spread quite a bit. It`s over on the far left side of that funny wheel stump thing. Can`t see it in the garden picture. It was raining when I took these today and I didn`t quite get the whole scene.
...And I now have some bulbs to plant for the spring.
The only colour I couldn`t find was red. I thought a splash of red would work well snuggled in somewhere with this combination. These will look pretty in the back garden and some in the front.
I bought some:
Scilla in a mix bulb batch of white, pink and mauve
Latifolium - Grape Hyacinth in partly blue and partly purple...unusual looking things
4 Crocus in pink and white and purple and mauve
Forbesii, called Glory in the Snow in mauve
Hyacinthus in Blue and Pink
Allium in a violetish purple
I want some red....I`ll find something red.....
Thought of going and actually finding proper pictures of these to make for more interesting looking, rather than reading a list but...time...never enough of it and a slow connection so this will do. Next spring I can photograph the real thing, that is if they grow. I may plant them upside down. hehehe
Not sure what a more familiar name would be for some at the moment but I know Allium is Wild Fancy Onion or something like that.
For someone with the word "garden" in her blog, I`m not very informative. tsk.
Lukas, Dilana and Storm were the final bottom three. Storm went home. It was kind of sad, but she`ll do great on her own. Lukas was a surprise and luckily he didn`t go.
I`m rooting for Toby... and Lukas as second choice. But I still really do like Magni too. He fits well. But there`s his little family....that prevents me from wanting him to win. Not a good racket to get into for a family man. It`s best to be single in this sort of thing.
Hubby downloaded some of Lukas` own music and is it ever good! Tonight at 7pm they are doing a special on how Lukas got chosen for this show. I have to work unless I get a call this morning :( Coronation Street and Rock Star are on at the same time. It`s going to be a challenge for hubby to tape both at the same time for us!***
