Some Garden pics

Daylight Savings has ended, and it is dark already!
I feel like we should be going to bed, and it's only 7 o'clock
Still plenty of flowers in my garden. Looking forward to the school holidays to get in and have a big tidy up.
I grew these poppies from seed.
I'm loving my Japanese Wind Flowers
. . . and can you believe this is a Geranium bud - it just looks like a Rose.

Beautiful pictures. The first one is inspiring, maybe, maybe, I am tempted...
As we are walking into Spring, it is hard to believe that you are walking into Autumn.

Gorgeous pics as always, Annie. We moved the bay tree to its own tub today; fingers crossed for its survival. And OUR tomatoes are going great guns; not confident that they'll ripen though. Have a good week; see you Thursday?

I love reading your blog! I find it endlessly fascinationg that because we live on opposites sides of the earth we are in mirror image. Our clocks have just moved forward as yours are doing the reverse. I love to see what your plants are doing too, as our climates are so different yet we share many, many of the same plants. Thanks so much for what you share. x

That's fascinating, not fascinationg by the way, -though I kind of like fascinationg too...

Gorgeous photos Annie. Love that geranium flower - simply stunning. We might be in Autumn but it's bringing the best out in your garden.

Such beautiful flowers! The geranium bud picture is gorgeous!

Geraniums are an undervalued plant in the garden. I only grow red ones cause I love the way the red flowers and the green leaves vibrate together. They nearly made a come back as a popular garden plant....and then the drought broke. A shame really.

Lovely photos Annie, I appreciated seeing them.
The geranium really does look like a rose bud. It caught my eye.
I have pink climbing geraniums and sometimes catch their buds looking like that. I pop pieces of it in amongst some of my shrubs and it loves to climb up through them, popping pink flowers out in the most unexpected spots!

As always your garden snaps are beautiful.
