Sunday Selections #532

 


Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
 
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
 
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life.  Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle. 
 
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen. 
 
I usually run with a theme. Last week I showed you Autumn in my neighbourhood and in the city.  Today I am showing you the seasons in my garden.  Autumn is slow to arrive in my garden - perhaps because the jungle is so overgrown/cluttered it creates a micro climate of its own.  However it is finally showing signs that it has arrived here.

You will note that the tree across the road is in full Autumnal splendour while the one in our garden hints at what is to come.

 

There are dahlias in bloom.  The tree dahlias buds are swelling, and I hope they will flower before our first hard frost cuts them down. 






This begonia by the front door has been flowering constantly for at least nine months - and shows no signs of stopping (yay).
 
However, there are also signs that summer has not yet left.  The daisies continue to bloom - not as prolifically, but they haven't given up yet.
 



There are also signs that Spring is on the way.  We are not yet in Winter (by the calendar or by the temperatures) and some spring bulbs have emerged and are flowering.





There are also plenty of other spring bulbs emerging.  Some of the dutch iris are already at least six inches tall (though the bearded and the Japanese iris are not yet shooting).  I am obviously going to have to get off my lazy fundament and get the last of this year's excess of bulbs into the ground soon.
 
Colour me confused.  I hope your week is blooming lovely - whatever the season.

  1. Cooler temps have arrived up here on the mountain, and are most welcome. Remy and Shama are enjoying the arrival of autumn temps, too. Even more snuggling for them...one would have thought that impossible! :)

    Have a good week, EC...cuddles to Jazz - I hope he's a happy chappie. :)

  6. I love the colors of autumn! They are usually too brief for me. I'd like the leaves to stay on the trees for a bit longer.
    That's funny about your spring bulbs blooming. Maybe they are from the northern hemisphere and got confused on the trip down. ;-)

    1. River Fairchild: The bulbs (like the gardener) are slow learners if you are right. The bulbs which are emerging/flowering have been in the garden for over a year now.

  8. You seem to have flowers blooming year round. Our winters are so severe and we get lots of snow and ice and very cold temperatures that I'm always amazed that as soon as spring arrives, the blooms come in all their splendor.

    You always have beautiful blooms to share. My daffodils and tulips are blooming and the deers have been eating them. I'm not amused.

    Thanks for sharing your fall beauty with us.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. Julia: Our winters are much milder than yours. I wouldn't be happy at the deer either. Here when spring arrives properly it will be the cockatoos and corellas which destroy them. They won't eat them, but they will rip them apart.

  12. You say that "Autumn is slow to arrive in my garden", but it is further along than ours! Most of the trees are still green, with only a few showing red tinges at all. The poor old weather is all mixed up. We are doing a LOT of trimming, cutting back, etc - why do things grow so healthily here??? I shouldn't complain, I suppose. Thanks for the lovely photos of all your seasons at once :)

  13. It's amazing how summer like your flowers still are. By creating your own micro-climate, you have definitely delayed autumn in your garden. It seems you always have something beautiful growing where you live. I can see why your garden would be confused, but it appears you have summer, autumn, and spring showing up in your lovely blooms this week.

    How cold does it get where you live? Here we get lots of temps below freezing for weeks on end. This winter was the worst, with temps dipping below 0 degrees F (-18 to -20 degrees C) for days on end.

    I really enjoyed seeing your garden up close and personal this week, dear.

  19. What beautiful photos of the coming cooler weather. Sometimes I forget that as we ease into summer others are sliding into winter. But that also reminds me that about the time we are at our hottest I might get to see your frozen bubbles again, which will remind me that even though it feels like it, summer never lasts forever.

  20. Things around here are also, in some places, out of seasonal whack. We went for a walk this morning, only about half way down to the beach, but we wandered up some side streets and I noted flower buds on some things and autumnal berries on others.And it was far too HOT for me to continue down to the sea and then slog back up the hill. I'd guess the temp. was north of 25 C (0is for you F people)

    Some lovely autumn colours to enjoy. The seasons do seem to shift each year, don't they? While it is Spring here, it has been quite dry and only in the last week we have had reasonable rain. Nights have been frosty during April too. Still, there is a lot to enjoy whatever season you are in.
    Have a colourful week.

    1. J C: Summer is my least favourite time of year - and we don't have hurricanes. Stay safe, stay cool.

  73. Isn't it weird, that Spring flowers are blooming in Autumn? Truly love seeing your flowers and autumn leaves! I love Autumn! I was looking at our trees today and our Rose Of Sharon trees are budding a month early this year. Big Hugs!

    1. Magic Love Crow: It is very weird indeed. I hope it isn't a sign of an early summer. I would love to have a Rose of Sharon tree. I will have to investigate.
