What a cold, dreary and wet weekend we had here. It is much too early for those temperatures from 30 to 40 degrees to settle in. Us older folks get downright chilled in those temperatures. LOL! Definitely no work was done in the garden except picking up a few limbs that had fallen from the wind but the weekend flew by anyway.
Since it is still raining yet this morning there were no new pictures taken today.
I took a few pictures of what was still blooming in the garden last week before the rains arrived and the variegated Sedum is starting to bloom. The blooms will get a deeper pink as the blooms mature. I am afraid sedums do not grow well here in my garden and this one flops over onto the ground.
The Impatiens in the toppled pot looked pretty in coolers of pastels. They did not look too well yesterday after the cold temperatures over the weekend. I will have to start saving some seeds from them now for next Spring planting.
The Lantana’s are on their last few sporadic blooms now and will be cut back and put into the basement to over winter this week if the rain stops. The end of the week is suppose to be beautiful again so I will do some last of the trimming, moving and planting.
The Asteraceae, Heliopsis or False Sunflower that were grown from seed had one single bloom last week but I will take what I can get from it and look for more blooms next year. I do believe it was suppose to be a variegated variety but this one must not have read the directions. LOL!
Blue Parfait hydrangea blooms have gotten their fall colors.
I only had three hydrangea bushes that bloomed this summer from the ten that are in the garden. So it was a bad year for the hydrangeas here in the hills.
The leaves are starting to turn now on the trees and with all of the rain we have had the colors should be beautiful if we can get some sun.
Everyone have a wonderful week and
