Garden bloggers bloom day September 2017

It is four months since I first joined in with May Dreams Gardens’ Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I wish I had kept up with it every month, but life and the Little Weeds keep getting in the way – the same goes for my garden hence its rather shambolic state in September. Next year, I promise myself, it will all be different. Who am I kidding? But here goes for my September blooms:

 The Erigeron karvinskianus I planted with Stachys byzantina next to Bergenia is still going strong by our front gate!
 I cut a load of this Nepeta back but it has a strong survival instinct and has woven itself through the Daphne.
 The purple gladioli I bought at Chelsea are about to come into flower.
 We brush past this lovely fennel each time we walk to or from our front door.

 Love this white Anemone x hybrida (Honorine Jobert?) by our front steps.
 Tess of the d’Urbevilles rose from David Austin with white valerian and the last of the Crocosmia.
 Still to find a permanent home: Echeveria ‘Duchess of Nuremburg’ and Sedum ‘Red Cauli’.
 White begonias still blooming outside the French windows.
 Ajuga repens and Verbena bonariensis – what has made all those holes in the ajuga?

 Nasturtiums and Calendula in our overgrown veg patch.

Cinderella is going to have to climb high to reach her carriage.

 Last of the buddleia. Have been keeping it for the butterflies but time to cut it back soon.

   Harvest time: apples, grapes and pears.

Last of the summer vine (sorry).

 Love this fading hydrangea.

Verbena bonariensis may be a cliche but it’s still lovely at this time of year.

 Valerian is something of a weed in this part of the world but it’s second flowering is welcome in September.

    Next month you must share again on GBBD and show how far high Cinderella’s pumpkin vine reached. I will be looking for it.
