In my garden

The last of the Summer Roses.


And the first Hollyhock flower.


Both with the 25mm.

Re: In my garden

How gorgeous Lyn, but I'll never know how they survived the searing heat of the past few days.

You know what I am going to say don't you
Glorious weather in SA at the moment - almost autumnal. Truly.

Nice - we still have lots of roses but yes the last of the summer roses.

Very nice. Look out for crab spiders in the hollyhocks.

I drove to Albury on Monday and saw hints of autumn along the Murray but temps here haven't dropped below mid thirties all week when earlier we had a run of 40+. I've been pouring the water on to thre garden like it's going out of style ... which indeed it may well be!

Began a new painting today but not putting this one up for running commentaries until it's done. Maybe by next weekend.

Re: In my garden

Nice healthy plants, good to see them rust free - unlike in my garden.

Hi Terry - I did a light prune ready for the autumn flush - so don't want anymore hot weather! Would love some rain though.

I don't make friends with spiders Harold, so will keep my distance.

Time you did a flower painting (hydrangeas?)

I don't deliberately grow hollyhocks Andrew, considering them to get shabby so quickly. These self-seeded so I let them be. The dreaded rust will eventually catch up with them.
