Filed Under : Summer

August is such a strange month in the garden: it’s got half a foot in Summer and half a foot in Autumn. Having had May, June and July where everything goes mad, there has been a definite slowing down.
I always think of August as the height of Summer, but I don’t actually think it is in the garden…
However the succulents which I planted back in June have been a success and show no signs of slowing down…

( this amazing succulent, which I didn’t grow myself, is for a friend’s 30th birthday present…)
…and the heuchera and geranium have also done well in the pot

My current favourite is the chocolate cosmos though…
with only one completely attacked by snails…

( …and don’t worry the cosmos in this photograph is resting in a piece of oasis, so that I could still have it in a vase afterwards! )

    It’s always so nice to see your plants bounce back from the verge of death. It’s one of my favorite pastimes to nurse them back.
