Late Summer Flowers

Summer is running, the nature rushes to do all its duties: to flower to fruit and to produce seeds. These days I try to collect seeds of delphinium, petunia, nasturtium, cornflower and other annuals and perennials that I'd like to multiply the next year. On the photo below it's my favorite place where I used to sit under the clematis pergola. The most hardy clematis that survived last winter are flowering now.


There are my roses in the front garden. Although they're nicely blooming soon I'll prepare them to overwinter: cut, cover with soil and cloth. But now I enjoy seeing them.

'The Folklore' rose
 
'The Golden showers' rose

my new rose 'Summer wind'

'The Fairy' rose 

'Pristine' rose

'Red cover' rose

The hydrangeas bloom too late this month due to cool July.
  
'Grandiflora '

 
'Limelight' 
 (it was early morning)

The hanging baskets please me with their colorful flowers, red and white impatiens, Royal pelargonium, petunias.


Along the paths the phlox opened their buds, white begonia and nasturtium continue to flower despite on rains (snails love them much. I wonder the snails multiply with mad speed after every rain).

 

New white water lily swings in the pond instead of faded crimson one. The first dry birch leaves drop into the pond.


The weather is warm and rainy till now so I think this summer will long a couple of weeks or more. 

Callistephus and Echinacea

  2. Nadezda, as always your garden looks beautiful! I love that white water lily and of course your wonderful roses, they looks amazing and very healthy! Today I discovered that the mosaic virus that started in one rose had spread to other roses, 5 of them... I made a drastic decision: pulled them out and put them into the trash. I hated to do this but I don't want more sick roses! Will have to buy some new roses now that springtime is coming! Have a wonderful Sunday!

    1. I'm very sorry MDN, your roses are sick, the mosaic virus is very dangerous and there is no treatment against it. Good luck with your new ones.

  9. So good to see your pretty summer garden. I love your clematis and roses. What is the beautiful daisy-like flower in the second last photo?
    I agree about the snails! After rain, in the evening, almost dark, I tread on many!!
    Hope summer lasts a long time.
    Best wishes, Betty

    1. I do hope your spring is warm and soon, Betty!
      I hate these snails as well. The next to last flower is Callistephus or annual aster or China aster. We call it just Aster.

  13. Many beautiful flowers in your garden. Your roses are especially impressive. Maybe summer will last a little longer this year to make up for your cold June.

    1. I do hope Peter, the plants need more warm days to flower. This summer was not kind to them.

  16. Me encanta tu lugar favorito Nadezda, sentarse ahí y comtemplar el jardín tiene que ser una maravilla. Está precioso, aprovecha que pronto llega el otoño y las flores iran desapareciendo poco a poco.
    Besos.

    1. Laura, me da pena saber que el verano ha terminado, y que el otoño ya está aquí. Tienes razón, tengo que aprovechar cada día caluroso para estar en mi jardín.
      Buen fin de semana!

  17. Oh, what wonderful flowers! It's not surprising that the place in the first photo is your favourite. It looks enchanting.
    The white water lily is very pretty. :) The Royal Pelargonium is gorgeously dramatic. I don't think I have ever seen this colour.
    Here September started with rain. Let's hope for sunny days, for you and for us. :) Have a nice weekend!

    1. Oh, my! The rain again! Sara I do hope this autumn is warm and dry, too much water last months. I'm glad you liked my Royal pelargonium, it was bought on a sale without flowers and I didn't know its color :) I agree it's unusual nice color.
      Happy weekend to you too!

  18. Come sempre delle bellissime fioriture!! Non riuscirò mai ad averne di simili, soprattutto le clematidi, quelle a fiore grosso non fioriscono così bene qui!

    Un buon fine settimana in giardino :)

    1. Clematis isn't easy in growing here as well, pontos. They suffer in winter frost and in rainy weather. The clematis on my photo is one of the hardiest.
      Buena semana!

  20. What a beautiful day in your gardens. I love your Clematis. Ours only bloom first thing in the spring, and I enjoy every single blossom. That is a gorgeous petunia, and I don't believe I've ever seen it before. Our phlox are starting to finish up, and some of our hydrangea are still beautiful. Could you tell me how you cover your roses with cloth for the winter? That sounds like an interesting option. Mine are buried under 4-7' of snow every winter so I'm always on the lookout for something to protect them. :-)
