The last few days were gloomy, rainy and foggy. Though I prefer the sun, this weather can still be beautiful.
But now the promised Indian summer is finally here, so I decided to catch up with the gardening. I repotted some plants, and I treated others with plant protection spray, to prepare them for the next season.
My Karma Choc dahlia grew taller than me, but it refused to bloom. So now I found a new home for it – with my friend Svetla (Shve), a wonderful artist who lives by the seaside.
I decided to prepare the dahlia for shipping… and I was amazed! I planted the bulb in the spring, and now there were more than 20 bulbs. I knew they would multiply, but I did not expect the new ones to be so many.
Shve will also take care of my pink peony. I tried growing it for two years, but it did not bloom. And I also have some seeds for her – from my “Dusky Maiden” delphiniums and the red Canna indica.
Some of my plants are still blooming. The toad lily looks really gentle, as well as the achimenes – a new (to me) plant.
Yesterday I finished this boho denim jacket – decorated with embroideries, African print fabrics, trims and tassels.
The jacket is available in our shop.
