Autumnal Things I'm Grateful For III:

A visit to the nearby #Dahlia Garden Hamburg. The burst of colours, variety of shapes & buzzing of insects in the middle of the woody LCA Altonaer Volkspark is always a magical treat.

Made it to the end of Friday. My friend has given me surplus tomato seedlings to plant. Let’s go long weekend. (If you’re outside Australia and curious, it’s the celebration of the 8 hour working day, so shout out to the union movement too.)

Edited to add #bloomscrolling and @plants.

I've heard a lot about them but today I actually saw a #bluebandedbee in our garden: probably Amegilla cingulata. Feeding on Carpobrotus glaucescens, the #Australian native pigface. #Bloomscrolling #bloomscrollingwithbee

Just look at these awesome #Rhododendron… pink as anything and oh so delicate, elegant in appearance.

I’ve seen many in white, too!

Most species are native to eastern Asia and the Himalayan region, but smaller numbers occur elsewhere in Asia, and in North America, Europe and Australia.

Fun fact; there exists, 1,024 different species of Rhododendron 😳🙌

On the one hand, I love the arching, enameled ferns with their bright green tops and fuzzy brown spores underneath. On the other hand, my goodness am I going to be uprooting baby ferns all next spring! Anyway, fertility is pressing onward before the snows...


A tangle of ferns. The ferns are like huge feathers -- bright jade green and almost looking hard and scaly on top, with a texture like green snakeskin. Underneath, they are velvety with spore cases, hundreds of tiny, red-brown dots on every centimeter of surface. The fronds arch and curve elegantly, like the arms of dancers holding a pose. Their curves reveal the tops and undersides at the same time.
A long, thin pod, the pod of a pink milkweed plant. It's smaller and smoother than the pods of the common milkweed, but the idea is the same -- the outer, brown husk is splitting, revealing a still=green inner core which has also split, and inside it are the overlapping golden seeds, like the scales of a fish, and just a glimpse of the silk that will soon lift them on the wind. Around the pod are the spotted red-green leaves of the plant as well as the remains of an earlier pod -- the curved shell and a few tendrils of silk that have yet to launch into the air.
Spirea in full bloom. My camera isn't quite good enough to capture the blue of their color; the picture is too purple. But the long stem with the alternating leaf clusters and blossoms are there. The blossom clusters look like the tutus of a group of ballerinas descending a staircase, sticking out from the stem with  flutes and clusters of color and little spikes. Each flute (like the champagne glass, not the instrument) is a floweret, and the spikes are the anthers, waiting for a willing bee or fly.

Ceanothus looks beautiful this time of year - here's one from on top of the hill behind us.

We've tried growing them before but can never get enough sun for them...

Against round green leaves and curling stems, two round flowers blaze forth in a panoply of yellow and shade after shade of orange. There are blotches of colour and streaks from the centre to the outer edge of the broad petals. It's a riot of colour, sunset in miniature.

A house on my street had the loveliest late season roses today. What a treat. #MedfordMA #SomervilleMA


A vibrant and large rose, with a buttery yellow center and some wonderful pink-tinged petal edges. The pink looks like it's been applied like a watercolor with faded and darker sections. It sits in a sea of dark green leaves.

#BloomScrolling these lovely orange yellow flowers and their tiny berries in a planter in Clayton MO yesterday were a bright spot in a trying day.

I'm not sure what they are, but they helped.

Clusters of small orange yellow flowers and dark green leaves, sprinkled with water droplets. Some black spherical berries show between the flower clusters.

the mini phal has been blooming for about 3 months now. i figured i should get a shot of it while the blooms are still nice 🌸

* Forget-Me-Nots
* The first leaf of the season on an old climbing rose
* Zantedeschia flower that self-seeded down the drive
* Marigold in the sunshine

This magnificent #WisteriainSensis, commonly known as the Chinese wisteria, is a species of flowering plant in the pea family, native to China.

A stand of Jerusalem Artichoke in full bloom. Dozens of sunflower blossoms tip 8 to 10 foot tall plants.

Had a challenging day at work. Took my camera on safari in my back yard and found this. I think I’ll call it “life finds a way”.

The stump is from a very old pine tree that died about 4 years ago.

Also in the #orchard is an old tree stump, and entwined around it is a honeysuckle. I _think_ it’s a native Lonicera periclymenum but don’t know for sure. Whatever, looks and smells gorgeous early/mid summer.

You can get smaller cultivars of the native Honeysuckle for smaller gardens, something like 'Rhubarb & Custard'. And you smell it before you see it, absolutely gorgeous.

At the back of the house at #Rhug is a fairly steeply sloping lawned area, with four fruit trees. They have suffered in the shade of the mighty conifers behind, so with some judicious removal of lower branches and some quite severe pruning, they have started to blossom again.

I am now trying to create a #WildFlower #meadow on the grass. Not helped by a 7 week drought in spring! 🙄
