An afternoon in the Botanic Gardens

15 October 2017 20:50:17

Myself and my daughter took a trip over to the Botanic Gardens this afternoon, before the Sculpture in Context ends at the end of this week. I haven't posted any albums recently but I'll try in a few minutes.

The Gardens were very well attended, and lots of tours going on. Just want to share a couple of photos for the moment of their lovely pumpkin display in the run up to Hallowe'en.

Tomorrow morning I'll be out in the garden securing as much as possible before the arrival of Ophelia. Stay safe, everyone.

many thanks for sharing all those sculptures with us. Some intriguing some not. There wasnt one though that I would really love to have-maybe the seated lady?

Mild Autumn

14 October 2017 21:46:00

Isn't it smashing that so many of our summer plants are still performing well at this stage in Autumn. It's been mild, to say the least. And today was very (almost) humid. Not much time outside today, but can't believe that my Rhodochiton is still in full flower, and Didiscus that I grew from seed this year, and also Lavatera 'Blue Bird', which was one of my best buys this year.

I've done so little outside in the last few weeks that I'm really struggling to post anything of interest.

JoanG JoanG 14 October 2017 23:00:32

Amazing weather these last few days ... 22 degrees here this afternoon, no wonder the flowers keep coming.  Your posts are always of interest Jacinta :-) 

Dick Dick 14 October 2017 23:19:43

Yes Jacinta, the weather is great, no need for central heating. Flowers are doing well.

With all the little treasures you have in your garden whatever you post is always interesting Jacinta!

Scrubber Scrubber 15 October 2017 15:23:20

Jacinta your posts never lack interest so give up struggling! Lovely pictures! The gladioli inmy border though falling over help the colour.

Thanks for your kind words, everyone.

Seed grown

13 October 2017 21:40:39

This Dahlia is the only 'single' in my garden. I originally grew it from seed about 5 years ago. It's always the very last Dahlia to open for me, and very welcome coming to the end of Dahlia Season.

Dick Dick 13 October 2017 22:50:30

Great result Jacinta. Not everybody has patience of that nature.

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 14 October 2017 00:18:13

That is very similar to one I bought a few years ago as a "bedding plant" that has come through several winters and just flowers its socks off every year! Just noticed it has a whole new flush of flowers today! I really love the colour and you I like the single flowers best!

Jackie Jackie 14 October 2017 08:19:07

I grew some from seed I bought in Lidl a couple of years ago and they are thriving. And still come back each year with big string tubers!!  The singles are very pretty.  

JoanG JoanG 14 October 2017 20:45:57

The single dahlias are growing on me too, might just try them from seed next year.  Yours is a beautiful colour Jacinta. 

Spider's Web

11 October 2017 18:10:53

Love this time of year when the pompom-like flowers of Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web' are showing.

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 11 October 2017 22:36:27

Oooh! Fatsia is a newbe in my garden and I'm really loving it!

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 12 October 2017 09:01:11

The Fatasia is gorgeous and Fatsia 'Spider's Web is lovely with it's variegated foliage all year around. Beautiful colour from the Acer in the background.

JoanG JoanG 12 October 2017 21:28:14

Lovely! 

Jackie Jackie 13 October 2017 08:26:12

The flowers are a real bonus on the Fatsia. And when covered in frost they look like Xmas decorations!!

Pinks

09 October 2017 21:52:35

Two vivid pinks caught my eye today. Yes, I finally managed an hour or more outside at last. Loropetalum looks lovely in bloom and the flowers contrast very well with its purple foliage. Another one is this un-named Aster which is growing under my Taxus baccata.

JoanG JoanG 09 October 2017 23:02:08

Asters really are the stars (forgive the pun) at this time of year.  Two pretty pinks there Jacinta. It was a lovely mild day today, glad you had time to get out.
