Floral Bliss #85


The heat and draught have gone by now, but they did their damage.
Birches and many shrubs are yellow already and drop their leaves on the grass.
Autumn is in the air. Of course a bit melancholy but apples are ripening!

This week I'll share my poor summer plantings.
The watering was the responsibility of my husband, but he did not quite succeed...


The white small flowered petunia all withered...

Kuumuus ja kuivuus ovat mennyttä, mutta tekivät vahinkonsa.
Koivut ovat keltaisia, monet pensaat ruskeita ja syksyn lehtiä satelee nurmikolle.
Tuntuu hyvin syksyiseltä, haikealtakin tottakai, mutta omenat ovat kypsymässä!

Tällä viikolla muutama kuva surkeista kesäkukistani.
Kastelu oli miehen vastuulla eikä ressukka selvinnyt aivan puhtain paperein.


The gorgeous blue petunia on the terrace all dried up... Now cut down, hope it shall grow & bloom.
This light petunia of thuja planting all dried up... The thuja & the grass still alive!
But my husband has managed to keep this hanging basket alive & beautiful ❤︎


Why my Actinidia kolomikta grows in a funny place like this, beside the pool?
Well, it was climbing to the roof of our gazebo, but one winter the gazebo fell to ground
because of snow burden - and the plant stayed on the spot :)
...
Jaa, miksi kiinanlaikkuköynnökseni kasvaa näin hullussa paikassa?
No, se kiipeili huvimajan katolle, mutta yhtenä talvena huvimaja sortui lumen painosta
- ja kiinanlaikkuköynnös jäi niille sijoilleen :)

  1. Oh Riitta,I think your husband did OK! It is very hard to garden in such heat (especially for someone who is new to gardening, because his wife usually does it ;))). ...and the hanging basket looks lovely still. Fun how the plants that got such heavy snow just kept on doing well after the buildings collapsed! They didn’t give up. Thank you for hosting!

  3. What a summer, dear Riitta! Not to speak of the blueberries! They are few, small and dry.

    1. Well, maybe sun is better than continuous rain anyway? :) But really, yellow leaves allover at this time!

  5. I really feel your pain about the plants not getting enough water. The same thing happened to me. So very sad. It's never really a good idea to delegate watering, but sometimes we must. Your petunia photos are wonderful. Next year will be a good one.

  6. Hallo liebe Riitta,
    wunderschön sind Deine Sommerblumen, herrlich blühen sie. Der Pavillon gefällt mir, dort kann man bestimmt sehr gemütlich sitzen.
    Ich musste auch immer den Pflanzen Wasser geben, sonst wären sie verdurstet. Bei mir blüht auch noch so viel und es kommen noch sehr viele Schmetterlinge und Bienchen.

    Liebe Grüße
    Biggi
