the gardener’s perqusite
such a riot of colour
A riot of color that equally suits autumn…love those warm hues and today, a shock in the garden. One of our three lilacs is again giving forth blooms and green leaves and it is Sept. 29, autumn, not spring! And here I sit, waiting for leaves to change color…and I get lilacs, not complaining but I want the russet tones of autumn…
lilac, peonies, dogwood & wood anemones are long ago memories from when I was a kid visiting my grandmother in Quebec. Sydney’s hot summers are too harsh for the cool temperate plants. I dream of visiting Japan to see the cherry blossoms in spring and Tibet to see the Blue Tibetan poppies but this may well be a dream for the next lifetime!
Ohhhhh how deliteful to see your SPRING is there 😉
poppies always bring a smile!
What beautiful, soft colours they are, Mo! I planted mine a bit late so not sure if they’ll flower, especially after being hail beaten. So lovely to see yours!
x fingers yours will start flowering soon Carol and thanks for all the good words!
They are such happy flowers, poppies really brighten up a room!
when we were working at the Botanic Gardens the poppies in spring would make even the grumpiest old businessman light up and smile!
I love Poppies !
What a great meeting we had today! Olga is fabulous! Thanks Mo
we did !
The Light…the softness of poppies…the shadows…love the warmth……great pics Mo.
they make good magic!
The delicacy of poppies…what a gift.
we have planted poppies and sweet peas in a tiny inner city courtyard garden every year since we designed and installed it back in 1992. I love that the customers go away on a cruise for 10 days every spring so we do their watering & cut the flowers to promote more, a bunch of sweet peas will be ready to pick by Friday!
like edible light
& with such exuberance!
Hmm…comments are disappearing . I popped in to say that my mother showed me how to singe poppy stems in a candle flame and it was them “my job” whenever we picked poppies.Zinnias, too.
that’s a good hint Di!
