I hope you have enjoyed the mixed Summer we have had.
Yesterday it rained non stop but today it has been beautiful and very hot.
This is a selection of plants which will take us into Autumn
I hope you will enjoy them especially the cyclamens.

The cyclamen are beautiful and the Sedum promising food for the bees. Your Jap. Anemone looks very well behaved, perhaps it's not as rampant as the pink ones, which I spend half my gardening time trying to get rid of!
Lucky you having some rain, I am despondent trying to keep pots alive through this summer, we are on clay soil and the garden is cracked like a desert!

Hi Honeysuckle

The area where these Japanese Anenomes are was a border until we gravelled it but I find that every year more and more of them are growing through the membrane.
I keep pulling them out with out success .
The one I really would like to grow is called Wild Swan which has lovely lilac markings on the back of the petals.
I have a plant which I bought at Tatton Flower Show in 2011 but it is very weak. Has any body grown this variety ? By the way my soil is also clay.

I will put a picture on the site

Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments.

All looks really lovely Marjorie, I have the white and pink anenomes here and have to say its the pink one that struggles to survive here as do the cyclamen...
