Stonecrop

Autumn is here and my stonecrop flowers are turning red and birches are starting to drop their leaves.

Temperature is slowly dropping and it rains more often. Days are getting shorter and we are reaching the point where the day is as long as the night.

Stonecrop is probably one of the easiest plant to grow. It can almost take any weather or temperature and still look good. Must buy more of them in the spring.

Teddy Bear

It has been awhile since I have written. Been traveling a bit and enjoying life.

Autumn is here though the days are still surprisingly warm and the water in the lake is still 20 degrees Celsius. Cannot remember a summer like this.

I was planning to have pictures about late blooming lilies, beautiful lobelias, tall sunflowers and colorful dahlias in my blog. Unfortunately we had a thunderstorm yesterday and it poured tons and tons of hails on us.

Now most of my flowerbeds look like salad bowls and do not have that many things to take photos of. Well luckily it is end of the season so I do not feel bad.

Two dwarf sunflowers made it through the storm so not everything was lost. The teddy bears are the ones that I always like to have in the garden because of their reliability and sweet appearance.

Windsor

Windsor is the last of the garden phloxes to bloom but goes well with the white ones.

Tried to find new colors from the garden shop I visited but the hot July has made all the saplings dry and shaggy. I guess I buy more in the spring.

This July was the hottest one ever recorded and I can see it from my plants. Not that pretty sight . Too much is too much.

Well I am enjoying the warmth. Laying in a hammock and knowing that the autumn is here soon.
