Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - Sept 2015
Fall is so close I can taste it. The spiders are fattening up..which is a sure sign that summer is nearing it's end here in northwest Oregon. The weather has dramatically changed in the past day and we are in store for rain and blustery weather. It's time to reflect over the blooms that made it through the hottest summer on record.
|It feels like I walk through spider webs anywhere I turn in the garden these days...|

Cape fuchsia's were a big winner in my garden this year. They survived the heat and no rain with flying colors. They get bigger here than their descriptions say as well...so the trick to loving them is to prune well! I am trying to keep the larger canes intact so they become more robust and sturdy..which keeps the blooms aloft for the hummingbirds to enjoy.
