Like I've said before, when I started blogging a year ago, it did not take me long to come across bloom day posts, and to find the source of this monthly event, Carol, of May Dreams Gardens. For last year's post, I had many more flowers to choose from, as we had not experienced a killing freeze, like we have this year. I have already shown some of the survivors of the freeze. Like last year, these photos were taken in a light rain. These are from Monday, after work.
Sweet Autumn Clematis:
Aster of some kind:
Wichita Mountains Goldenrod:
This isn't the best photo, but I am so tickled that there is a larkspur that survived the summer.
The volunteer phlox are still blooming.
Autumn Joy Sedum:
Chocolate Joe Pye Weed:
Rose in a pot:
The Queen Anne's Lace has bloomed all summer, and has lots of seedheads on it.
I love Debonair Chrysanthemums so much, I am including them in the post, even though I've shown them several times already.
Now that the dahlias died in the freeze, the September Charm Anemone has more room to grow. I hope to divide it in the spring and give it more room.
The Asters the birds planted:
I can't believe the delphinium is budding again, and that the buds survived the snow and cold!
I can't think of the name of the next 2 flowers, that I planted between some pasque flowers, but I like the bits of color in with all the green. (I had the name in my brain earlier today, so maybe it will come back.) Added 10/15: I remembered they are toadflaxes, and when I looked it up to be sure, found out they are related to what I knew as butter and eggs, which are yellow toadflax. They are quite invasive, and when I found out, I transplanted them to one of my washtubs, because I loved the blooms. This was their 3rd summer, and I didn't keep the violets out of them, and so they didn't do as well this year. I was going to do a post on them when they reached peak bloom, but they didn't peak like usual. I'm going to have to keep an eye on these new ones of different colors, to make sure they don't start spreading too far. Also, they reseed, so I'll have to see about deadheading them when they finish blooming.
Rose with no tag from sale table:
Beautyberry is as pretty as a flower:
Pansy from spring:
I planted this 'Fireworks' Goldenrod in my new extension because it was too late to move the others. I noticed the leaves were wider, but thought it was because of different growing conditions. Now, I see that the blooms are different, too.
These are the first ones I had planted:
I hope your fall is going well, and you still have some blooms.
