September Light

September in my garden. Warmth, sun, light - we missed them in June. Balance's been achieved.

Russian Sage - very independent, NO-maintenance, self-spreading, loves poor dry soil in my garden.

Poppies - I love their flowers and their seedpods.

Joe Pye Weed,  Double Knock-Out Roses and Perennial Phlox.

 Double Knock Out Roses - eaten by deer in June, they are doing their best in August and September.

Poppies and Srub Rose 'Carefree Marvel'

Well, poppies again.  I said I love them! I removed wilted leaves and left just seedpods.

Russian Sage again. 

Tomatoes Black Krim .   
I hope they will get black!  We got a couple of ripe fruit from this particular bush, but these guys are far from being ripen.  Tomatoes are very late this year!

Double Knock Out Roses. I saved them from deers with 'Liquid Fence'.


Perennial phlox 

Lacecap hydrangea

Agapanthus - one of my favorite plants.


Campanula is blooming again!



Fuchsia is surrounded by Euphorbia and Melianthus. I am proud of my Melianthus - he survived the winter!

Mother's rose

Acacia

Dahlia.

No complains about September in my garden. Warm, sunny, light.
Did I tell this already? Well,  I just love it!

  10. I appreciate the fall flush of blooms almost more than the spring one.....love that last effort. I saved many of my poppy seedheads from prior years, thinking I could use them in a wreath...they are so interesting looking, perfect for wreath decorations. Your gardens are really putting on a great fall show, thanks for sharing it with us.

  11. Hi Tatyana! Those agapanthus!!! How I wish we could grow them here. I've tried in pots but I only have so much room for overwintering things... yours are so effective in their placement... beautiful as well as the other plants you've featured today... We had 32 degrees last night... it's getting to be that time again I'm afraid... Larry

  14. I see you like Russian sage as much as I do. We have a very dry garden and does really well there. It is also a great bee plant for our small apiary.

  17. Tatyana, you are really living in Paradise! Everything seems to be in order and happiness is felt around. That sage is really flowering almost in excess, how fabulous. I have long been dreaming of having agapanthus as it is seen also in the tropics, however i realized it is really tortured by the hot tropics.

    1. Thank you, Andrea! I tried to move parts of that sage to other places in the garden, but they don't grow well there. So, I just left it alone where it is and seems to be happy. You have so many wonderful plants there which don't grow in my area...

  18. September is a great month for a garden. Your long shots of the garden are just lovely.
    Russian Sage--chopped to the ground in the spring here and it just grows back and takes care of itself. Perfect.

  19. The warmth and light have been captured perfectly in your superb photos Tatyana. I have been wanting Russian sage for ages, you have reminded me, I must look again for a suitable spot for it.

    Agapanthus is stunning

  21. Your garden looks fantastic; lots of blooms and so tidy! Ours looks like a jungle mess right now. I also love Russian sage - I love the way it cascades across other plants and the way light plays through the stems.

  22. I love the Campunala, looks very beautiful!
    Your garden is very nice work!
