Gertie’s Garden Diary, October 2017
Freckles is back I love Freckles.
The garden is awaiting a massive overhaul which this lazy owner will eventually get around to! It’s a jungle out there, albeit a pleasantly exuberant and colourful one! Flowering plants have been given free rein to take hold, and they have, which is lovely in some ways but gives me the age-old bugbear of needing to trim some back, a job I dislike. Hey ho, needs must. Anyway, I have made a pictorial record of Iittle jewels dotted about, and here it is.
The relatively new Variegated Wallflower is spreading and reflowering well and Begonias are still blooming in all sorts of corners … chaotic but nice.
Do like my Pelargoniums.
Not all blue but brightening up Blue Hill nonetheless.
I have taken several pictures of the Honeysuckle which is at its best right now, and that’s a bit sad, because it has ALL to come down very soon and that space cleared for a new bed … am thinking Broad beans and later, Squash, up poles?!
I had to go into next door’s garage to see this flowering Clematis yesterday, and I tidied up the pavement/roadside growth … [ three empty drink cans and chip wrapping bags this time on our side of the fence, IN the garden ]
Looking up, another pink rose … that has to be a Climber!… and outside: …..
….. Salad flowers(?) and ‘Privet Grapes’ for the birds?
It’s been a gorgeous day today, and am hopeful for another, tomorrow when I shall finish clearing the Cold Frame for future seedlings, and a new produce bed to take them … so watch for the space where once Honeysuckle grew.
