I have been soaked to the bone this past week and I know that August and September have been some of the wettest months so far in the Cape! So, I had little hope of Spring flowers. I have to admit that the “gardening joy bug” hasn’t hit me yet and with the beginning of Spring already gone, I had to muster up some strength to venture outside into the soggy garden with gumboots and umbrella! I was determined to add some colour to my day! And here it is! I was so surprized to see so much flowering and so much colour!
Here’s what’s blooming in Barbie’s garden in September 2013
My azaleas looking gorgeous! This is my first attempt at growing a shade plant!
Peach tree blossoms – so late in coming! Where are all the bees?
Tara is still wanting attention! In the background are the wild flowers.
Bulbine grows well anywhere – and a very useful plant if you have a cut, bun, or an insect bite! Artemesia Powis Castle in the background – this is an off cut from the mother plant.
