The end has come for a few things quicker than expected with the winds that blew over the South of England on Monday...not quite an American standard of storm and I haven't seen any trees down around us but enough to blow away the cobwebs and knock over the dahlias and ricinus.
However some things are looking better and better...the salvias which have been sulking all year are suddenly flowering, and some annuals are looking the happiest they have ever been. So some pictures of this years climax to enjoy whilst you can!
|Things on the terrance moved for the painters....my movable jungle in pots!|
|Chairs are still left out NGS stylee...Canna musifolia looking big|
|You can see how much the Canna musifolia have grown in a year! probably at least 8ft....|
|Nicotiana tabacum finally getting bigger|
|check out my Dahlia imperialis getting bigger and bigger...yeah baby!|
This is the nasturtium take over....they came out of nowhere and have conquered any spare spaces, reaching across paths like an octopus ready to grab you
This is the scene today post winds....tall dahlias, ricinus and helianthus are all flattened :(
