It's a favorite place for plants to seed in the cracks between the pavers. But eventually the time comes to make way for next years little hopefuls. Gomphrena has spilled over to make it impossible to walk down the pathway.
Several times this week I have breakfasted alone, sitting in a spot under the covered patio.
From a distance the impression is that there is not much to do. The plumbago has taken the place of the heart-leaf skullcaps. Of course the skullcaps will be back again during the cooler weather.
A couple of years ago I finally had success with a summertime wall planter. This is the second generation planting with a new Agave desmettiana, 'variegata' with the narrow-leaf Mexican portulaca. I used felt to line the basket.
Around the corner in the English garden the Felicia rose is about to bloom again.
There is no more faithful re-bloomer than Felicia. This is her third blooming of the year and the fragrance from a single rose this week stopped me in my tracks.
Hope you are enjoying your fall garden. I am.
