Hello Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful
This coming weekend there are two festivals
being held here in Ohio, the Bob Evans Farm Festival
and the Sauerkraut Festival. We like to attend the Bob
Evans Festival every October and see all of crafts on
display. The Sauerkraut Festival is a new one to us
which we will attend at Waynesville. There are suppose
to be around 450 artisans there so we are excited to
attend this one. I will try to get some pictures to
share with you all. The weather is suppose to be nice
and sunny for both events so maybe we won’t have to
be worried about getting stuck in the mud in some field
where we park this year.
For Bloomin’ Tuesday with Jean at Ms. Green Thumb
I only have a few blooms to share. The blooms are getting
fewer and fewer all of the time.
The Almost Black rose is still finishing up with a bloom or two.
She is a beauty and I have enjoyed it this year.
The Iceberg rose blooms are getting a pink tinge to
them now as they are waning.
The Anemones are still in bloom with exception
of Queen Charlotte which blooms earlier than my
others. She is done blooming and her seed pods have
been scattered in the Woodland bed in hopes of
getting some new plants started there next summer.
Prince Henry Anemone
I am so enjoying the Chocolate Snakeroot
plants this Fall to help brighten up what would
be a dreary garden. Margarete anemone looks
so pretty against the Snakeroots dark foliage
and white fuzzy blooms.
The Fancy Dress petunias blooming in the container
on the other side of the decorative corner fence are
about done also. It has had such a variety of colored
blooms this summer.
The Caldiums will soon be cut off and taken to
the basement for the winter.
The two little Chaste trees that I started from seed
this summer will also have to be set in the basement
for the winter. I do not think they will stand up to
our winters but I think I will leave out the two
Yellow Bell bushes that were started from seed to
see if they can handle it.
If not I have more seeds and will try again next
A few little Asters are blooming yet.
Spindly as they are and on the ground.
Does anyone know if you should pinch
them back in the summer like we do
Agastache Rosita is just now starting to
grow and spread out so she may look better
The yellow Gerbera Daisy was repotted and brought
into the house to spend the winter.
This basket of Alyssum and Geraniums were brought
up onto the porch from the frost but will be let go of
when the cold weather hits.
Along with a few of the other pots of geraniums
and alyssum stuck around in the beds.
The caryopteris First Choice Blue Mist
shrub has finished its blooming now.
For its first year of blooming I really have
loved its blue blooms.
My tiny Sweet Autumn clematis has
finished blooming already. It should be
even better next Fall .
Mary Eveline Dahlia will have to be cut back
soon and the bulbs taken up.
The Nicotiana plants have bloomed all summer and
into fall with some deadheading to encourage them.
That is about all I have to share for Bloomin’ Tuesday.
Happy Gardening Everyone &
Until Next Time.
