I haven't been in garden for over two weeks, which for me may as well be two years. Incessant rain and below average temps (15c - brrr!) have kept me well away. Luckily today offered a respite and I managed to get some tasks done. Here are some of the flowers which are in the garden today.
The black-eyed susan is always in bloom.
I've noticed the Clerodendrum speciosum is really going well at this time of year, blooming bigger and better than ever
The ornamental bananas are doing well. Above is velutina and below is ornata. They are blooming well but smaller than at other times of the year
It is rather cold at this time of year and days are short. Our mornings aren't too bad (no frost recorded here) but days seldom go above 16. This is fine for a few weeks, even a month or so, but for three continuous months it does take a toll on the plants.
So far, however, so good.
