October in the City

October has colored all trees and bushes in the city. Saint Petersburg looks pretty, just brighter in these cloudy, rare sunny days. I have taken photos of the park with paving stones paths, benches and playgrounds, between quarters of houses, kindergartens and schools. I often walk here.






Wild Cherry tree

My favorite place is on the last photo. The huge wild cherry tree spread its branches on a large area and makes shadow in summer time, looks beautiful in winter with dark-red berries on white snow-covered bare branches. Now in October the it seems a large yellow umbrella.

Impatiens or Busy Lizzie

I'd like to show you my Impatiens (Balsamens or Busy Lizzie). These plants grew and blossomed in my garden in May - September, now they are in the city, enjoying the sun rays through the windows. They are delicate plants and don't winter in the garden. They are three, of different colors.  

Impatiens flowers painted in bright colors, develop on the branches in early summer. They attract swarms of insects.
According to the shape of the flower, Impatiens are divided into: rose-shaped, camelli
a-shaped and carnation-shaped. The plant loves warmth and plentiful watering. Now Impatiens is so popular in gardens and homes that new varieties and hybrids are constantly appearing.

Happy Garden Blog day!
