There has certainly been a feel of Fall in the sir this
week. Lows in the upper forties and lower fifties and
highs from 70 to 75 degrees.
If I look closely at the trees there is a tinge of color
starting to show through some of the leaves.
I am so not ready for Fall to arrive and I the warm
flower filled days of Summer are going to be so missed.
The flower containers look worse now this year than I
can remember them from past years. It is time to be on the
lookout for some pansies to put in the window boxes
and chrysanthemums for a Fall look. I have a couple of
containers that I over wintered in the basement that now
are starting to form buds but a couple more to add to them
would be nice.
Some more of the Fall Anemones are starting to bloom
and the Chocolate Snakeroot plants are getting buds.
I seem to have lost the name of this pretty anemone
does anyone have a clue?
Poor thing was forgotten about and bigger plants planted
in front of it.
It has done well in its sunny spot but had to be
watered lately because of the lack of rain fall.
They are just another seed failure of not getting what
you thought you were going to get from the picture.
They were suppose to have bronze colored edging and are
a disappointment and not too Fall looking.
Some of the deadheaded tall phlox are getting a few
smaller blooms and have been so wonderful.
Nikki tall phlox has been a late bloomer since it
is just a baby. I swear the fragrance of it smells like roses.
Since I love tall phlox some new additions are on their
way for Fall planting to add to those already I have.
I needed something to take the place of the old mildew
ridden Bee Balms that are going to the woodland bed.
The Duchess of Albany clematis that got moved
to a more sunny location in the rose bed has gotten
a few blooms finally. So she must be happier in her
The Luscious Grape Lantana is still blooming away.
The new Lucky Star echinacea has gotten another
bloom.Poor thing was planted behind some cosmos
that have decided to grow like crazy. Finally !
The cosmos is getting buds so I may have some blooms
after all from the seeds that were planted. Transplanting
them did not work well at all for me so I threw some seeds
directly into the soil knowing this process had failed me
numerous times, but thinking what the heck the seed
is just going to waste. Surprise!
Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’ with Party Dress Anemones about
ready to bloom.
The Crape Myrtle shrub has almost finished blooming
for this summer. It was such a delight this year.
I hate to see all of the blooms fade for the Summer
the old stray cat doesn’t care about a thing other
than id I might feed it or a good nap in the sun.
Happy Gardening and Everyone
Have A Wonderful Weekend !!
