Tuesday Treasures – 9 #Brainfluffbookblog #LightintheLockdown


This week on Tuesday Treasures, I am featuring the few remaining flowers blooming in the garden – my planting scheme isn’t aimed at late summer. I managed to photograph these in between the rain showers on Sunday.

The bronze fennel this year has LOVED the hot dry conditions…
The strawberries are still flowering and fruiting..
The lavender blooms are drying on the plant
The goldenrod makes a real splash of colour in the flower bed
And my bedding plants go on blooming – though I should deadhead them…

    • Yes, there are! But I’d forgotten their names – thank you for that. I love them, too. So attractive – they fit into my colour scheme and are as tough as old boots.

    • They are beautiful, aren’t they? Hm – rose blooms will die off quite quickly if subjected to chilly winds and driving rain for days on end:)). Or rot while still in bud without bothering to bloom.

    • Oh so do I, Greg! It’s got to be one of my favourite plants, ever! At once stage, I had a beautiful lavender hedge, but it got ripped apart by the wind, as I didn’t keep it clipped back. This has been a wonderful lavender year, as they thrive in hot, dry weather:))

  1. Beautiful! We’re down to one flower–yup, one. Bash’s wildflowers were nearly all eaten up in the sprouts stage by the dreaded chipmunks,but this one plant, a vine-kind of flower with pretty tiny purple blossoms, is still holding on despite our coldsnaps.

    • Yes… we don’t have much flowering in the garden right now, either. I lost my dear little fuchsia, which is really upsetting – I think that though we watered it, it didn’t like the sudden heat:((. But the garden has become rather straggley and untidy. We need to get out there and get it tidied up! But I’ve been away for a fortnight with my sister-in-law – sorry about the rather spotty responses, etc. but my little laptop is having memory problems, so I couldn’t go online with it.

      • How awesome you got out and spent time with some loved ones! I actually went away for a night WITHOUT my laptop. It was such a weird feeling to not have my big rectangle along 🙂

      • Yes, it was a writing retreat, so all I had to do was concentrate on my own writing, as well as proof read parts of my sister-in-law’s thesis. And it was bliss. It was in the flat with the turret room overlooking the sea – it has to be my favourite spot in the whole world…
