I have gone back to growing seasonal flowers and vegetables - in years actually. It has brought about such excitement. I cannot wait to see the progress each day. Some have already started yielding and some are still to be transplanted. The image is that of cocks comb. There are 6 colours Are you a gardener too. What are you up to lately?

yepperz, i adore putterin' 'round the garden myself. 's autumn sinks in, it'll be time fer me to bring in my tropical plants (hibiscus 'f diff'rent sorts, jasmine, bougainvillea, ferns, etc). i've several rooms with south facin' windows so'll get to enjoy 'em throughout winter. don't do much gardenin' here outdoors in winter. i'll start seeds in late february fer next years veggie garden 'n 'bout mid march'll start some flowers from seeds. 's fer now, i'm watchin' maters 'n peppers closely in hopes 'f 'nother good harvest 'fore the frost gets here. didn't 've a big garden this year, the grasshoppers demolished most 'f it, includin' the herbs.

That;s the most worrying part - the pests. I had sown some seeds and forgot to spray something to ward off ants but the next morning I see them. I have most of all what you have mentioned specially bougainvillea

@crazyhorseladycx Bougains do not need any attention - ofcourse they do not bloom in the rainy weather. I am waiting now and in a few days my garden will be a riot of colour thanks to this humble flower.

I am a gardener, but now it's Autumn, only a few flowers still bloom. I am removing everything from the garden now to be ready for winter.

You have distinct times for your gardening while here we have that only for seasonal flowers but when it comes to perennial they are there throughout the year. blooming as and when they are in a mood.

@allknowing I have a gardenia, that is perennial and I have to move the big vase inside the greenhouse. I will let outside the hydrangea, I hope it will resists through the winter.

@LadyDuck I admire all you out there who have to face extreme weather. Here in India the North has those conditions but when the weather is normal they get the best of flora

LOvely picture, it is the best time for gardening now after the monsoons, my garden too is green and lush and I am just letting it grow wild because in a few weeks it s bound to dry out in parts and then I can trim it...I have been re-potting the Jasmine bushes !

Many of the plants sometimes just disappear. I had jasmines both single and double and now they have vanished. Your garden must be filled with the aroma of jasmines

@allknowing I used to have many bushes growing wild especially the Juhi or Jaaji with pink and white petals, but like you said mine too have gone except the ones that I am growing in pots on the terrace ...They are doing well and have been steady so far .

Here the gardens are pretty well done for the year. There are blooming chrysanthemums and pansies, and root crops are being dug up. I am anticipating gardening next year.

I have seen that when I visited the US. Even roadsides have seasonal flowers. You must be eagerly waiting to start your gardening.

Yes, I am a gardener, but I only grow flowers. They are pretty much finished for this year.

You out there have shorter seasons unlike here in India. Something or the other will be there at all times.
