September’s Last Blooms

Today is a rainy day here in the hills. I cannot believe that September is all but gone. The leaves on the trees are starting to change colors and with all of the rain they should be beautiful this year if we can get some sun.
I took a very slow walk around the garden yesterday morning since I am still having a little vertigo. The garden was looking a little dismal.

Crimson Bouquet
The roses still have a few blooms  here and there but the black spot has been so bad and their leaves are all turning yellow and falling off, but I will enjoy these last roses of summer.

Easy Does It

Anemones_Sept26 The Charlotte Anemone just keeps on blooming and the blooms are so welcome this time of the year.

LuckyStar_Echinacea_Sept26 The Lucky Star Echinacea decided to put on one small lone bloom. It has been such a heavy bloomer amongst the Echinacea's this year.

The Toad Lilies are still blooming away.

A few of the Foxgloves are putting on a few little blooms here at the beginning of Fall.

BlueHill_Salvia_Sept26 I keep cutting off the Blue Hill Salvia and it keeps giving me some blooms.

The vertigo is leaving faster this time and I am so glad of it. Thanks for your concerns and prayers.

Everyone Have a Wonderful Week,
And Happy Gardening!

Sorry you are not feeling well.
This has been a bad year for my roses not with black spot but some kind of worm they eat the buds and leaf.We spray and they come back. If I see them I have been hand picking them off.

Szkoda, że coraz mniej kwiatów kwitnie w ogrodzie i dlatego cieszą nas te, które jeszcze kwitną. Życzę Ci, abyś przestała mieć zawroty głowy. Pozdrawiam bardzo serdecznie

Hi Lona - So sorry to hear you are not feeling 100%. I do hope you feel better soon.

Your Charlotte Anemone is gorgeous! As are the Roses!

Glad to hear you're feeling a little better. Your blooms are so pretty. Your roses look spotless. Love the anemone, too.

OMG what is your secret to these marvelous seasonal backgrounds? They are so lovely!!!

Now let's get to the bottom of things. Vertigo? I have been reading your posts and maybe I'm blind but what is this and when did it set in? I'm worried about you, now, so please send me a note. I hope all is well.

Much love, Kate

The Roses are lovely. I really like the the Crimson Rose. It looks like velvet in that photo.
Hope you feel better soon.

Lona, your autumn roses are beautiful. You capture the most wonderful shade of red on that Crimson Bouquet. The Gruss an Aachen has such a lovely bloom.

Your images are glorious Lona. Vertigo... never knew what it was until a couple of months ago. So strange and so life challenging... and sooo not fun. I empathize with you. Stay positive.

I love your header, so fall! The roses are still beautiful. This is the time of year we see our best roses.

I forgot to mention how much I love your new fall look on your blog.

You really have a lot of beautiful flowers right now and some of my favorite for shade!

Your autumn banner is so beautiful! Colorful leaves are (almost) worth seeing the summer end. I'm mentally making notes for next year's garden as I tend to chores.

Hoping the vertigo is soon gone, Lona!

Lona I sure hope you feel better soon!
I can't believe September is almost over either, it really flew by.
Your garden doesn't look dismal from the pictures. The flowers look so fresh.
I'm looking forward to all your fall pictures. You always have the prettiest views of all the leaves changing.

Lona, I am so sorry you aren't feeling well again. I hope this time it passes quickly and uneventfully.

I wish I'd taken the time to do a better job of deadheading my sage... I ignored it and it responded by going dormant.....

But that pelargonium is great! I love the variable colors on the peals.

Sorry about your Vertigo. Get well soon! With the pics you posted, it looks like your garden is still chugging along! Beautiful roses that must really stand out in your garden...

tina said...

Oh they are wonderful. So glad you were able to capture the beauty. Please take it easy with the vertigo. I had it at Christmas and it was awful. The doctor prescribed something that made it better though. Get well soon. The toadlilies and anemones are just awesome!

Glad to hear the vertigo is leaving. Makes life difficult. Your roses always look so fresh and lovely. Great fall blooms.
