Not normal...I'll have to research that. Are you possibly not watering/watering too much?

I wish it would rain here. We keep getting skipped - everyone else in this area got some nice rain yesterday, we just got a little wuss shower.

Anyway, the volunteer gladioli are starting to bloom:


The lotus has more leaves, I am hoping it gets a chance to bloom before it starts snowing.


Sunflowers!



The first of the winter squash, red warty thing (not so red as of yet). The baby squash don't always develop, hopefully I'll get a few.

love the gladioli, sunflowers look good and I know what you mean about little things that don't always make it, like pumpkins and gourds, maybe I can get a picture of a friend's lotus, if you put your fingers together and hold out your arms- that is how big the leaves are and the flowers are bigger than two hands put together, I'll try to get past her place with my camera.

this is a picture of my friends lotus pond, the trees in the background are cedar trees, I was standing about 20 feet or so from the pond when I took the picture, didn't have anything to use as a reference to size, I think those lotus leaves are probably 6 to 7 feet out of the pond, she grows massive things. That picture doesn't do justice to her plants.

I love giant lotus, those are lovely!  Mine is a miniature variety.  I have been to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens (a national park on the anacostia in DC) when the lotus ponds were in bloom - gorgeous!

So here's an update on the funkrustico estate.

This my three sisters garden. As you can see the squash sisters are dominant and bossy! I have to do a lot of taming. I found a use for all of the orphan wooden chairs I collect-the vines are growing up and over them! The calendula are mostly volunteers.

Purple Queen Bush beans



Zinnias pumpkin and corn

Russian Sunflowers

I planted these lily bulbs 3 years ago-this is the first year they've
actually flowered...Huzzah!

balkandina- love the garden, my gourds aren't doing too well, but I planted them so late that I doubt if I get any, oh well.
 
ptarmic wumpus-  I wasn't aware that there are miniature lotus, I should have known. That picture isn't very good, but she wasn't home and I didn't want to just open the gate and go in. She started with a piece of root about 1 foot long, and that was last year. Peggy has like 5 or 6 ponds, water hyacinths, water lilies, alligator weed, floating hearts, water lettuce, lotus, etc., she even has started a new one for the koi. That lady has more energy than one person should be allowed to have. She is always giving me plants, but by the time I get home, I can't remember what she has given me.

Balkandina, your garden is so beautiful! 'Riotous' is the word that comes to mind. I envy you so much.
Remember when I told you that my rose was losing leaves? Well, whatever it is, it destroyed my Salvia and is working on my patchouli.  Angry
I don't understand it...perfectly healthy leaves just drop, and they look they've been sliced off at the base. I can't find any bugs, though...
