Time sure flies when you are having fun or just getting older.
The sun finally broke through Wednesday morning.
My daughter and I made a trip to Columbus Thursday and dropped by the Franklin Park Conservatory after her appointments.
It was such a beautiful sunny day that we really enjoyed walking around the grounds to see what was in the trial gardens this year and what was blooming in other areas of the Park.
The first touches of Autumn were showing in some of the trees there with beautiful oranges and reds.
Here in the garden I got some Pansies planted in the pathetic window boxes and some more plants moved and planted.
I added a couple of Feverfew plants that I have always admired on other gardening blogs and a Crimson Bouquet rose cutting that I finally got to start for me this summer. A new Buddleia “Nanho” purple that my friend Joy @ Canadian Garden Joy had recommended.
I have tried growing two other Buddleia and both died so I am really hoping this one will not end up the same compost pile.
I also had to replant another of the new Irises because of those pesky squirrels and the deer munched off the new blooms on the Dizzy lilies. I had stopped spraying with deer repellent after the rest of the lilies had finished blooming so it was my fault they had a good snack of them.
White is not really a Autumn color maybe but I have a fondness for white blooms in the garden.
The Mums in containers are in full bloom now.
And a few that I have in the garden beds are starting to open their blooms adding some Autumn color to the garden.
I got some manure spread around them yesterday and some bone meal scattered around the irises, lilies and other bulb planted areas.
This weekend is the Sauerkraut Festival at Waynesville, Ohio. My daughter and I are going to attended and fight the crowds again. It is always a popular festival not only for the great eating but all of the crafts for sale. Waynesville is famous for its many antique shops as well.
With a warm and sunny weekend forecasted it will make for a beautiful weekend for the festival.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and Happy Gardening!
