I know I'm one day early but I don't have time to post on Saturday as that is usually the busiest day of the week for me and is also my mothers birthday tomorrow so it has to be today for my contribution to GBBD.
For those of you who have been living in deep dark holes under the ground for some time: Garden Bloggers Blooms Day is held on the 15th of every month. It's the day when many garden bloggers from all over the world show what is in flower in their garden. Why? Well you should ask Carol that. ;-) During some months of the year it is also allowed to show what is in flower in your home as not every gardener has something in flower outside all year round. So, it would be according to the rules to show you what's in flower inside in my home, but I am not going to. Why not? Because I still have quite a lot in flower outside so I'll show that instead.
In flower in the potager:
Primulas in yellow and white
A flowering leek, lilac
Nasturtiums in red, orange, yellow and cream
Borage in white and blue
Cobaea scandens, with several flowers and still producing buds. It's an annual here.
And this was a surprise; the blackberry was in flower too, can you see it? Here's a better look at the flower.
In the Victorian greenhouse:
Assorted Pelargoniums and Solanum crispum
One tomato plant
and a hot pepper.
In the front garden:
rosa Guirlande d'Amour,
rosa Moonlight, still going strong and producing lots of buds,
rosa Madame Alfred Carriere
the last Asters in lilac and purple,
and violets in blue and yellow, white and purple.
In flower in the back garden in pots and baskets:
Camelia, deep pink
Violets in pink, burgundy, white, blue, purple and yellow
In the borders:
Verbena bonariensis; we are down to the last few flowers.
Spirea japonica Anthony Waterer, just the odd bloom here and there.
Malva Park Allee
Gaura lindheimeri, still full of flowers
Salvia greggii Stormy Pink, also full of blooms
Eupatorium rugosum Chocolate, covered in flowers
A passalong plant, no idea what this one is called but it's been flowering for months now.
Geranium, I'm amazed that its delicate flowers can stand the autumn weather.
The last of the Mohicans:
Japanese Anemone, it self seeded, its parent is a double pink.
Dolgan, Russian Blue kitten
He's Willow's and my grandson, we're very proud of him and he is the latest addition to our ever extending cat family. No, he doesn't live with me but with his breeder Gerti.
