Not much is going on right now among my plants...
The blasting heat of August turned all activity down and I am quite confident that the gentle Indian summer will infuse some new energy!
Miss Julia Correvon, a lovely and very reliable clematis is preparing herself - or so at least I hope, for a new cloud of curly deep bordeaux flowers... though right now she looks a bit ragged.
The only bloomer on duty is a white climbing rose with a huge growing habit, which I rooted from a cutting and I do not remember what it actually is?!
Rosarians out there do you have an idea???
The flowers open completely , revealing the golden stamen. They are sweetly scented reminding apple blossoms which result quite attractive to all sorts of bees, tiny wasps and flies of all kinds.
The leaves are quite pointed and mate, light green.
Though far away from any blooming intentions (!!!) my Plumerias produced an impressive bunch of glossy, healthy leaves and even branched out! OK, it took them basically all summer to do so, but since the result is farely pleasing... so be it!
