Well this month is just about gone and it went flying by for me. Blogging has not even been on my mind lately. Just too much happening here with the family. We worked for four days getting my 82 year old moms water and sewage working. We were glad it was finally working and then our commode started leaking. LOL!
Did you ever have one of those weeks. My printer quit working, the vacuum is ready to stop working all together and now the transmission on the car is slipping. And the camera is slowly dying on me as I mentioned before, and I feel like crying or throwing it across the yard. Or do I just need to have my eyes checked.
It has been a while. LOL!
Yet in all this I am still blessed because it is all just material things and cannot compared to all the things that are going on around the world and here in the states.
Excuse the venting gardeners.
Now to the garden………
The lilies are almost finished blooming here but my sad looking roses are getting a few more buds since the nights are cooler.The daylight hours are getting less gardeners and I am not happy seeing the days getting shorter.
The “Cherry Sizzle” Zinnias are just now blooming just as the tall phlox blooms are blowing away.
The shady window boxes are looking pretty filled with Caladiums, Impatiens, Torenia and Creeping Jenny. Thanks for the plant suggestions you all gave me to get these shady boxes looking pretty. I love this mixture. I am wondering if the Creeping Jenny will survive in the boxes through the winter freezes to grow again next spring?
I will leave them in the boxes and find out. My other window boxes that are in full sun are starting to look sad but it will soon be time to put pansies in them for fall.
Red Cardinal flowers are still blooming in the red garden bed. I love this flower and need to seed more of them. Maybe getting some blue ones to add to the beds next spring.
My “plants to get” list is never ending. How about yours?
The double blooming ‘Crazy Daisy’s are gone now and
Helenium now are filling in some spots with their fall colored blooms.
Dahlias grown from seed are blooming away in this large container. I have better luck with the seeds than I do the bulbs. None of my bulbs are growing or blooming this year.
I have a Cardinal Vine growing in this pot with the dahlias. But I have not gotten the camera to cooperate with me yet to get a good picture of the Cardinal vines blooms or the Japanese Anemones that are blooming now in the garden.
The shameless “Naked Lady” or “Resurrection” Lycoris squamigera lilies have come and gone with only the stems to tell that they were even here.
There are always basket and containers of Impatiens stuck around in those shady spots of my garden.
So this is some of the things that have bloomed or are blooming in the garden.
