September flowers and wildlife


Still plenty of colour in the garden in September. The lilies are called Lion Heart, I purchased the bulbs at Hampton Court Flower show and planted them up. This is the result, nice to see lilies in September. I have been busy collecting seeds, and also sowing Hardy Annuals for them hopefully coming out early next spring. Next will be the task of planting up my pots with spring bulbs. It is never ending, but I could not wish to do anything that is so enjoyable and so close to nature as this.

    I think the Lily looks rather sinister image. Love the cheeky little robin.

    There's something of the over-ripe banana about that lily.

  • I totally see what you mean Ceres, to be honest they are not the colours that I would choose for a lily. As I am sure some of you have seen the colours of my other ones from  the summer.

    My hubby thought that they were unusual when we saw them. So I thought that I would see how they turned out. I brought about six bulbs and each of them have about seven flower buds on them.

    I always choose pansies,and violas with faces. I like the Roy wood( wizard) one's the best.

    I plant some in the front garden to welcome me home. Less maintenance than a four- legged friend.

    As the Latin saying goes "de gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum". I personally have a strong dislike for pansies, as well as for the majority of variegated flowers (and foliages). It's hard to explain. On the other hand in Jacqueline29's photos I very much like the pink fuchsia, the pink and blue China asters and the Cleome. As for the Lion Heart lily, I admit it's an interesting curiosity, but would not have a place for it in my own garden.
