Wet Saturday Morning in my Garden

It is a wet and cloudy Saturday / Lauantai morning, yet warmer than the previous days.
I’ll take you on a tour in my September garden. Our house is situated
in the middle of the property. First we look at the terrace and lawn side to the west.


I cut down this parthenocissus in July, too late actually.
But it has grown beautifully to the arch. Behind you see an Aralia elata 
showing already some autumn color.



This thuja ’Smaragd’ was growing in a big pot on the terrace and
I planted it into the ground yesterday. Also lime mummularias have been planted
in the ground for winter. I use them in the sommer in big pots with summer flowers.


Behind the thuja and aralia there is our small lawn and a rose shrub area. And my flat granite.
I got these two big rocks from the opposite neighbour when they were building their house.



To the left from the granite there is another rose shrub area with sedums in front of them.


In front of our terrace there is a flower border. Right now Symphyotrichum novi-belgii is 
blooming beautifully but  Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster’ is not totally open yet.




At the other side of the garden there is a little pool, a lot of different shrubs and planting areas, 
no lawn, only paths. There is also a pergola with Humulus lupulus ’Aurea’ and parthenocissus.



I wish you liked the tour. As Saturday is in Finnish Lauantai, my
photos suit for Tom’s Weekend Roundup starting with ’L’!
And my favourite would be the expression Lazy Saturday - Lazy Lauantai :))
Sorry, have to combine these two languages!

  1. ...I wish that we would receive a bit of rain, after our wet spring it's been very dry. Your garden is gorgeous, how do you find the time to care for it? Everything that you grow can be grown here too. Thanks Riitta for the tour, I'd like to see it in winter.

  2. Liebe Riitta,
    Herrlich, Dein herbstlicher Garten! Und der Regen tut den Pflanzen so gut Ich weiß nicht, wie der Sommer bei Dir war, aber wir waren wieder von Trockenheit und Hitze geplagt. Jetzt wird es kühler und wir hatten auch mal Regen, da sieht der Garten sofort wieder besser aus.
    Hab ein schönes Wochenende!
    Liebe Grüße
    Steffi
