As mentioned elsewhere, this has been a brutally long and hot summer in Fukuoka. I've mostly stayed out of the hot, buggy garden so it is full of weeds.
This was on Monday, October 3. Today is the first day in ages the high temperature is below 30, as we have a typhoon skirting by us.
Aside from a potted Cyathea lepifera that died, likely because it got too dried out, most things are fairly healthy looking. After it cools off so I can do some weeding I'll upload some garden pics!
