Today’s Garden: September 12, 2018

I’m exhausted, so this will be mostly photos from a partly sunny day with a strong garden helper.

Lots of seeds and autumn colour (Oakleaf Hydrangeas, Amsonia Hubrechtii, Astrantia, and Red Fox Katsura Tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum ‘Rotfuchs’)IMG_20180912_150818b.jpgSeedsAutummCcolour

 

There are lots of seeds, berries and grasses. Love them! I don’t know the name of this ornamental grass, but I enjoy its many colours every year at this time when I look out our diningroom window! These are cherries of Cornus mas on the right..

 

This oddity is a Magnolia seed pod. This is a quite young tree and so the seed pods are a new experience for me! I found many different ones when I Googled this.

The patio tomatoes are doing fine. This tomato seems quite firm.

This tall Cotoneaster tree was nearly removed when we moved here, but I’m so glad we kept it now! Look at those berries!

At last, Fuchsia Hawkshead is in full bloom. I always look forward to this time.

Japanese Anemones have begun to bloom too. This is A.Honorine Jobert with its fat buds.

To add to the white flowered theme, here are my white Cyclamen in bloom.

Cimicifuga is fun in several ways. The foliage, the buds, the flowers and the seed heads!

This is Clematis Francesca, showing off one last bloom!

Hosta Waterslide has wavy foliage and very lovely blooms too. I don’t always like Hosta blooms, but these are so pretty!

This bee is certainly enjoying Hydrangea Plum Passion.

Last but not least,  the beginnings of fall mulching.  After weeding, pruning, planting and edging around the Rhododendrons, a layer of mulch really improves everything! The yellow leaves are our redbud tree in autumn clothing.
