With the weather changing every day, our gardens don’t know what to do… The  Zenias didn’t do well at all.  They lost their colour within a month and are now unfortunately due to be removed when I get a free weekend.  The Alyssum however seems to love the colder weather.  Even those in pots have filled up and are beautifully overflowing.  I’m still and will always be addicted to their wonderful scent.

With the weather conditions finally changing, I have made my biannual change to the front flower beds.  Previous heroes have been marigolds and patunias.  This year I’m trying these beautiful Zenias. 

They come in red and pink but this yellow/orange is, in my opinion, the brightest.  As long as the heat doesn’t return, and we don’t get frost in the winter, these should last until spring. 

  

I love the mini flowers within.
