Bursting with flowers.



I've never had so many dahlias since I started my garden.
It's half of October and dahlias are bursting with flowers! 
It's pure madness! 
They've been flowering since late June.
No other plants make such a good flower performance in mid-autumn. 
What a pity, that when the first frost comes, they're going to be dug up.














 More asters! 💙








I planted some tulip bulbs, but I will write about it another time.

October, you're moving too fast!




It's almost half of October and I'm still halfway gardening our plot. 
Now, in autumn I can only go there at weekends, and the visit of course depends on the weather. 
Last weekend kids stayed home so I went to the plot alone. 
Unfortunately, it was drizzling all day so I didn't do all that I had planned before. 





I uprooted the annuals that were left. I had hoped before to save a lot of seeds, but I didn't save as much as I wanted - all because of rain, seed-pots were rotting instead of drying. 
I planted some new and replanted some of my old perennials and I still have several shrubs to plant. 
I dug up all gladioli bulbs and several dahlia tubers - I still have about several dozen dahlias to dig up, but I'm waiting for the first frost to come. 





I picked some sunflowers and made the last bouquets with late marigolds.
 The orange ones are fantastic - and they're called Fantastic :)




I think it's the last bunch of dahlias. 
I'm going to miss these fancy dahlia bouquets I was making all summer.





If there weren't any asters planted in the garden, it would be sad and gloomy right now. 
I bought more shades of pink, purple and blue.
