Flowers and Fruit

Mid-August, the flowers still bloom, fruit ripen, becoming juicy. 
It often rains, the sun seldom appears, the temperature is lowering.
 In my garden roses bloom the second wave, are not afraid the rain and chill.

Bluehead (Еryngium), Lobelia, Hydrangea "Lime Light", Potentilla, Stonecrop (Sedum) and Echinacea delight the eye with their colors.
 

Finally lilies and daylilies began to blossom.

High Impatiens and white dahlias grow next to the Tuya.

 

Sea buckthorn fruit also grow. These yellow berries are full of vitamins, but are sour.
 Apples grow, redden. I always wonder how can 5 or 6 apples  grow in one place of thin branch ?

  3. You are lucky to have daylilies this late in the season! Is this their first blooming? Mine have finished long ago and I miss their cheery colours in the garden. I love the sight of those apples with their rosy blush, it means they'll soon be ready to eat :)

  4. Hi Nadezda
    Aren't your roses just lovely??? I'm so glad you have some that bloom twice.
    You probably know this but the Sea Buckthorns can be pressed to make a very very healthy juice!

    1. Astrid, I make the Sea Buckthorn juice and jam if I'm hurry to collect the fruit because the birds very quickly eat the berries, they love them too! Thank you!

  5. Yes, it's time for the last of the autumn perennials to flower. There are only Michaelmas daisies to come in my garden. I have all of yours and they are a wonderful sight, an abundance of colour to gladden the heart.

  8. Hi Nadezda, It was very chilly this morning when we got out of bed. Fall is definitely in the air! You still have lots of pretty flowers in these final days of August. I have never tried buckthorn berries. Do you eat them raw or cook them in pies or jams?

    1. Yes, fall is coming, it's pity, summer is very short! The buckthorn berries are sour, not everyone likes them to eat raw. Although is said they have lots vitamins. I cook the jam, adding more sugar.

  10. Well, you may not be able to grow fuchsias, (as you mentioned on my blog) but you've got many other gems to flaunt. They're all very beautiful. Could you email me more about your High Impatiens? I collected seed from a plant in a landscape in a neighboring town. I tried sowing a few of the seeds but they haven't germinated which makes me think they need to winter over first. Do you collect the seed or buy new plants each spring? I'd love to know more. Thanks!

  11. Nadezda I have to comment on the Seabuckthorn ! I took them as supplements (although I didn't notice a change, I thought they had to be good for me ? LOL) so wow ! you are able to grow them in your garden that is wonderful !
    You have so many pretty flowers .. that rose is a gorgeous one though .. what is its name ?
    All of those apples : ) it is amazing that they can grow on such a delicate branch isn't it ?
    You have quite a bountiful harvest of flowers and fruit to enjoy !!

    1. Joy, Sea buckthorn has a feature: one tree must pollinate another fruit tree. The pollinator won't have berries. I have 2 trees with berries and one pollinator tree.
      If your neighbors are already growing a pollinator then you can only have fruit tree.
      This hardy rose is "Anadia" bred by Meilland, has deep pink-pearl color.
      Thank you!

  13. I'm impressed with how well your roses are holding up with the rain! Some beautiful blooms and produce to boot!

    1. Indie, I chose the rose remembering our cool and raining climate. This "Anadia" by Meiland is very hardy with rain and frost, I've never seen its flowers fallen with rain. Thank you!

  14. So wonderful flowers and pictures! The lillies a great!
    This year we have a lot of blackberries! When we're back, I'll have a look at our apples and pears.
    I hope that by the stormy weather in recent days, not too many apples were torn down.

    Have a nice WE!

    1. Meggie, some of our apples have fallen when was very strong wind, but lots of them are still on the tree. What do you do with blackberries? we have no these berries here. Thank you!

  15. Nadezda..hi...I have a question, if I would bring a plant in for the winter that has been outside all summer, should we spray it with something to be sure we're not bringing in any bugs?

    Would love to hear your comments on this.

    Blessings,
    Gert

    1. Gert, I think you need to clean not only the plant, but also the soil in which you will bring in for the winter. It will be better if you use soil from the garden center in a сlosed bag. It is necessary to examine all the leaves and roots, to this plant does not infect your houseplants by aphids, mites, fungus etc.
      I store the garden plants (calla, canna, begonia, pelargonium, etc) separately from houseplants.
      Blessings!

    1. Joy, these are the pink Canadian (!!)rose bush "Martin Frobisher" and white one "Margaret Merrill", it's very high rose with dark green leaves. They both are resistant to black spot and rot diseases. Only aphid worries them. One minus is that these roses poorly resistant to rain.
      About my Canadian roses I told here:http://northern-garden.blogspot.com/2012/07/roses-bloom-in-north.html.
      Have a nice day!
