Passion: My gardenscape in September..........

September...the month of transition from summer to autumn...
How does my garden react to it? Have a look...
Cucumber vines have developed tiny fruits...

My cardinal climber vine started blooming...

Also, a wild flower (coreopsis) seedling bloomed...

Kumquat fruits are conspicuously-big now...

I got some new plants for the garden............
Mandevilla 'summer romance'...also called Allamanda...

The turmeric-yellow blooms are gracing the patio...

Two succulents.......they were costly at $3 each for tiny pots...but, it is good that you can propagate them..


Begonia...

Red sage (Salvia sp.).....


I also got a root hormone (indole-3-acetic acid) ....I intend to propagate random cuttings...

Tried with some geranium, rose (3 variety) and rosemary...also, fragmented the new begonia and dipped in it...



Current state of the garden.........

I am sure in coming days, it will look nicer..now that the scorching South California sun is mellowing down..

Passion: Inexpensive amendments to garden plants......

I read in gardening blogs that the egg shells are nutritious for plants.........so I ground the dried shells and fed my plants..........


I hope, the plants will like it......

Place: Bicycling trails in Irvine.........

Orange county is known to be great for bicycling............
It has designated trails for the bicyclists........
Barely half mile from our place, the trail can be joined........It's the popular Jeffrey trail.........
The trail is bordered with lush lawn, which is dotted with beech, sycamore, oaks and myriad other native plants........some shots...











Autumnal looks...
