The sweet perfume of Clerodendrum bungei (pink flowers) wafts beautifully over this part of the garden which causes me to forgive them for their rampant running habit; after all, they're easy enough to pull up. If left unchecked, these would take over the world. There's also a Clerodendrum trichotomum (I think it's var. fargesii because its leaves are not as large and furry as my other C. trichotomum, it hasn't taken on the tree-like proportions of the latter and it blooms later.) Anyway, it smells great around there right now!
You may remember this view from May.
The potted agaves and other succulents belong back in the danger gardenette. I pulled it apart to clean up the bamboo that was encroaching and never put them back. Oh well, it'll be time to pull them back inside for winter soon.
The pot sitting empty back there is for a hosta I recently bought which badly needs to be planted. Oh well, it's raining out right now. There's always tomorrow, right?
This lovely lady is disgusted that I didn't remove the bamboo litter from her hat before taking her picture. She's looking directly at a slew of plants in pots that need to go into the ground. She's so judgmental!
How has your garden season been this year? Full of work, great projects, and efficiency or more of a time of maintaining and planning for the future? Have a happy and productive weekend all!
