This Hydrangea paniculata that just a month ago was in creamy-pink colors now is brown and semi-dry. Soon at the end of the month I will cut dry flowers of hydrangea and will use them to shelter tulips from the frost.
There are blooms in the greenhouse, where temperature is higher than +14 C outside. This clematis 'Blue angel' continues flowering and the last bud of water lily is opening (I moved the basket with water lily in the greenhouse).
The paths are to be cleaned because of faded slippery leaves of Virginia creeper and apples that fall down time to time. It's my job for next days. Under the apple tree there is a sack full of red apples. Guess, how many apple pies I have to cook? :-)
Some wild plants as Solidago (Goldenrod) and Topinambur (The Jerusalem artichoke) grow behind the garden fence and look nice under the autumn sky.
The bushes are still green as this Cornus alba variegata. The evergreen rhododendrons are OK in autumn rainy weather. This one is 'Helsinki University'. Yesterday I feed all rhododendrons with potassium and magnesium for better wintering.
I finish this post showing you the last flower of the rose 'Summer wind', that grows the second year in my garden and is healthy and hardy to our climate.
What glad you in this season?
