Hello me dears welcome to a new regular monthly post.
Since we moved we have been stuck by variety of gardens and plants in our new area.
The area is called the gardens because every street is named something - Gardens.
not a good month to start but hey, its a start.
This tradescantia was the plant that sparked the idea.
It is just growing in a crack in the pavement by the road.
Roses are very much a feature in 'the gardens' this lovely peachy yellow just glowed in the evening sun.
Not all is sweetness and light though this a gigantic Japanese Knot weed. the very same thug as we have done battle with in ours.
Its October and a bumper crop of sorbus berries.
or what ever they are, the birds love them.
A horrid fatsia japonica trying to look exotic.
and some lovely pot plants.
This mirabilis jalapa is a fave of mine.
along with the many fuchsias in the area.
The dahlias are still putting on a fab show.
As is this passion flower.
You never know what's around the corner, grape vines, olive trees, figs or indeed melons.
I pass these sun flowers on my way to the bus stop to work. They always cheer me up.
pyracantha to remind us that we are now in Autumn.
and indeed Haloween
