October Colour

A short blog to show the colour in my garden which I’m enjoying at this time of year. The Cosmos has been so colourful for a long period along with the various Salvia not forgetting the Asters.

Grand - your cosmos is doing very well. Asters are good value at this time of year aren't they? I think ours are rather late flowering this year but none the worse for that. Lovely closeup of the salvia.

I have loads of black and blue salvia here in Eshowe, KZN, RSA. It becomes a nuisance as it spreads so easily. But it is a pretty space filler. I think I will take mine out the garden and plant it in pots rather, or even in tyres.

Its a joy to see so much colour around and your garden is no exception Dawn, its a real tonic especially when the sun is lighting them all up...

Thanks everyone. I love Salvia, our battle is getting them to survive Shery, rather than controlling their spread. I've collected seed and taken cuttings as I would hate to lose them.
