Small rant!

Small rant!

Small rant!

Just something that irritates me is when someone employs a leaf blower to blow every thing from their garden onto the street and leaves (pardon the pun) it there!!!

Why not pop it into a bag!  

Rant over! 

Seed heads

Ligularia Othello

Ligularia Othello

I was doing a chop on certain perennials which were recommended before the winter and one was Ligularia.  But the seed heads on this Ligularia Othello were so nice I could bring myself to chop them down yet!!!

Echinacea - 3 plants!

A plant that did exceptionally well for me this year were the Echinacea, I love them, they flower and flower and the bees and butterflies love them!  Oh and they look good too!

Wow the leaves are falling fast and all the colours are changing. I am trying to get the last of my plants in waiting into the ground! There is always something to be done and the last two days were great to be in the garden. Think I'll give it miss today though!!!!

I love persicaria's, they just keep going and going. 

But you do have to keep check on them or they would take over!

There is such an Autumn feel to the days now which I love, I love all the seasons, they always amaze me!!!

I bought this Hydrangea a couple of months ago because I fell in love with the soft cuddly leaves!! Yes madness I know! I love the colour of the leaves too.  I was not expecting flowers this year as it is quite a small young plant but two flower buds have appeared. I think it is more valued for its big leaves than the flowers. Time will tell.

I bought this lovely Geum at the Mount Congreve plant fair last month €4 and just love it!!! Geums give such long lasting colour! 

The rain was badly needed last night! 

Have a good day!

I have been very busy using the fine weather to cut the grass! Too much grass!  But also a lot of watering to keep new trees alive! I have to say I do like watering!

I really enjoy the new hour long Gardeners World, makes such a difference.

Enjoy the day!

It is about time I did my first journal of the year!  Here are a few from my garden, can't believe how fast everything is growing!   I have put a few in of my maples that are young and in pots in the garage for tonight as the frost which I believe we are going to have will damage them!

My first Erythronium to flower is a new one I got last year so happy it is flowering!

The daffodils have been flowering for weeks - such great value!

The Epimedium is a great flowerer and then such lovely leaves afterwards for the summer.

Stay warm!

Wow so difficult to choose! I suppose that's a good thing!!  I love the Fushia because it was a cutting I took on Lansdowne Road last year!  So I call it Lansdowne Road Fushia!!!

I love this Rudbeckia Herbstonne but will have to stake it better next year!!!

Finally I love the view from this part of the garden!
