Rain at last

Flowers on the windowsill
Garden is looking much better after some much needed rain. It has become cooler, the days seem to be shortening rapidly. It's all feeling quite autumnal.

Selinum wallichianum
The Selinum pictured above was planted several years ago and has always looked good with its ferny foliage and white cow parsley flowers. It has been suffering in the dry weather, I have had to water it a lot. It will get a new home in the autumn.

I have noticed that the taller flowers in the garden, such as the aster and gaura below, don't seem to have grown as tall this year. Perhaps this is due to the drier conditions?

Aster 'Little Carlow'
Gaura lindheimeri 'The Bride'


  1. Such pretty flowers. Don't have anything that nice this late in the season. If only it will cool down a bit more so that the fall things can start to bloom. Thanks for giving us a cool look now.

  2. Gode billeder.
    Smukke blomster.
    Tak for kigget.
