Hello Rosemary:What very splendid seasonal images. Verbena bonariensis we have always loved and grew it very successfully in our Herefordshire garden where it liberally self seeded despite the heavy clay.Temperatures of 25C here for the whole of this week. Most likely hotter in Britain!
Dear Jane & Lance - I love Verbena Bonariensis too, and so do the butterflies. Yes, wonderful weather, I understand it was 30C yesterday, and the sun is up there again today - lovely.
You are a superb photographer, Rosemary, and your locale would seem to be perfect at the moment. I do have to add, though, that it's difficult to look at that first image on an empty stomach!The temperature here in Florida is down to the lower 70s F, a cool spell for us and a reminder to start getting out the blankets.
I cannot imagine ever needing blankets in Florida. It has only ever been hot when I have visited. Thank you for the compliment re: the photographs; as I have mention previously, I only have a little point and shoot camera.
I have been reading in the news that it is very warm over your way, great pictures, cheers from New Zealand, Marie
Dear Marie - lovely to hear from you. Yes, we are really enjoying the warm weather before we head off into the late autumn and winter. Lucky you with the summer ahead of you.
we had an indian summer here too. it lasted for two days : ( but we enjoy it : )love your pictures Rosemary!
Dear Demie - you certainly have to make the most of it whilst its here. We are now on our second week, but I fear it will be on its way soon. Pleased that you liked the pictures.
such beautiful and vibrant pictures, love the autumn colours of the Acer. (I found you through Demie's lovely blog). Take care, Lisa x oh and I really want to stick a flake in the ice ceam!!
Dear Lisa - you are so right a choc flake in the ice cream would be lovely and make for a better picture too. Thanks for your lovely comments.
Hi again, Rosemary - Regarding blankets in Florida, it does freeze here from time to time, but it remains so hot the rest of the year that our blood actually thins out after several years. Then we feel chilled when the temperature gets down only to the 60s!
Hello Mark again - you would have difficulty coping here in the winter. When I think about it, I have heard of the citrus fruit crop being damaged by the cold.
