Summer? Let down....
Well, what can I say….? As my username suggests- I am a begonia fan, however, with the summer we haven’t had here in wet, windy,unpredictable Scotland, I am extremely disappointed this year. I still have several begonia plants not even hinting at flower yet- AND some which never even poked through the compost. All very frustrating. I do however love Scotland and I’m looking forward to going up north with my wife & friends for a week long tour and with camera/tripod in hand.
One plant which has done well though is my osteospermums- actually a little TOO well – the lovely acer I planted in the centre of the large container is completely swamped! -just showing the leaf tips and no more. I’m praying it will survive in tact.
I have only returned to GOY with a clematis problem in the questions section as I really have been busy this year in great anticipation for my begonias which have been a terrific let-down. At the moment I have an ongoing footpath and water feature pebble-pond all in slow progress. Hopefully, when that’s all finished I’ll be able to spend some time with pics taken around the garden.
If it stops raining today- I’ll get the grass cut…..!
One other good thing was that I have my water-butt set up at the end of my garage and approx. 7/8ths full !
