Warm Autumn

It is believed that in our Northern latitudes summer ends when the school year begins, on September 1st. And according to the astronomical calendar, the day of the autumnal equinox is considered the beginning of autumn, that is September 23rd. 
It seems that autumn here began to adhere to the astronomical calendar. I can imagine how students want the start of the school year to be later than now.

What is growing, ripening and blooming in my garden these warm fall days? Here they are.
The autumn look give special flowers such as Sedum, Ligularia, Erodion, Nasturtium.









Viburnum red berries are ripening. Green apples are still hanging on the  tree. They are hard and still sour because it is a late autumn variety 'Antonovka'.





Gooseberry berries hang down to the ground. They are ripe for a long time, I do not like to collect them - the bushes are prickly. 
Blue plums are delicious, I usually freeze them for the winter and make jam.





No one collects Actinidia berries (small kiwi), although they are very soft and juicy. Birds love them.



The last peppers and tomatoes ripen in the greenhouse.
I made 'lecho' from peppers and ketchup from tomatoes and froze some for the winter.
 



 

 
This summer, the plums on the tree near the house ripen late, many bad berries fall into the grass. It's a pity, because I like these plums very much. 
The lettuce is still pleasing, it is juicy and crispy.






I finish my story with a photo of Austin rose, which decided to extend the summer and opens new buds.




I wish you warm autumn and delicious fruits.

  1. Here the kids go bak to school right after Labour Day, but the official first day of fall is the equinox. Leaves are already starting to fall, but I think this is at least in part due to drought-induced stress. Great results from your garden, Nadezda.

    1. Tistou, the weather here and in your place is very changeable. Now the days are warm +15C but nights are cold. I'm glad I had time to pick my veggies.

  6. Oh such wonderful flowers, fruit and vegetables, Nadezda! I'm especially admiring your plums. We hope to find some plum trees that would survive our climate.
    We have had some rainy days now which is good because during the summer it wasn't raining very much. Now there's the evening sun and everything looks so beautiful.
    Stay safe and well!

  7. Dear Nadezda,
    how nice it is to have a look into your garden in St Petersburg! Fall has arrived here during the last week and after a terrible draught it finally had rain in its luggage! I never expected to be so delighted by "bad weather". Hostas are turning yellow and white Hydrangeas blush, but the roses are blooming abundantly for a second flush.
    Your rose is just lovely and the buds look promising and I love the pale salmon colour of your Nasturtiums!

  10. Your late summer garden is beautiful Nadezda! I especially love the Sedum and Ligularia blooms and that you have so many wonderful edibles, which all look delicious by the way. I am holding onto every second of summer until the first day of fall officially arrives, but am also looking forward to the beauty that the cooler temperatures have to bring. Stay well and it is always a pleasure visiting you!

    1. Laura, siento que tu cosecha no haya salido bien. El clima y el tiempo dictaron sus condiciones. Aquí llega el otoño con lluvia y frío por la noche. La cosecha agrada, los tomates son deliciosos.

  14. Hallo Nadezda,
    eine schöne Vielfalt bietet dein Garten im Herbst. Ich liebe die Lingularia besonders. In Deutschland sieht man sie nur selten, dabei ist sie so schön.
    Viele Grüße
