My Garden in September

September already, and the changing season is clear to see when I look out into my garden.

The leaves on my tree and acer are turning a beautiful burnt orange colour, and the bright splashes of colour are starting to dwindle.

My Japanese anemone’s still going strong..

I love the vibrant colours of my sedum…

These absolutely stunning dianthus chianti double have been flowering for over a month now and are just so pretty..

And I have had one, just one, of my gladioli flower…

I’ve been busy out there recently, cutting back my cut-flower patch, ready for reorganising and replanting some of my perennials. As I wrote earlier this year, I could see that some things needed moving about come autumn, so now’s the time. I’ve moved my peony, taken a hydrangea out of it’s pot, and added some new plants and cuttings onto the flower patch area, too. It means there’ll be year round interest there now, and I’m already looking forward to sprinkling my seeds in and around the perennials next spring, ready to re-create another cut-flower area.

Next job is to plant in my latest bulbs delivery, which will probably be in the pots, though I’ll scatter some throughout the garden, too. And I’m still waiting on some fairy roses for the front garden, which I’m a tad too excited about! There should be another peony with that delivery, too, which will go in the patch photographed above. So, it’s all go, with plenty to do with the cooler weather moving in, so that I can get the garden the way that I’d like it to last through the winter months when I can do very little out there. I want it to be ready to burst forth with colour and life next spring.

How about you? How’s your garden growing?
