This is the first time that I've participated in Carol's from May Dreams Gardens Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. It's the beginning of Autumn here and my Sedum 'Mini Joy' certainly thinks so because it has just started to show some pinkness.
Here are some Dianthus I planted around October/November last year which have flowered consistently since then. They are fairly thirsty though and I have to say that they've needed daily watering to make it through summer.
Feeling fairly dissatisfied with the lack of flowers in my garden I decided it was time to plant my bulbs. I spaced them out over the area before burying each one. Last year I was organised enough to dig up and store them in a calico bag in the shed. In the past I've just left them in position with fairly disappointing results. This time I've also planted them in dappled shade instead of full sun so fingers crossed! I planted Dutch Iris, Daffodils and Jonquills. While I was at it I treated my garden to an application of Seasol as a reward for surviving summer.
