|Anemone 'Queen Charlotte'|
|I've seen goldfinches snacking on the echinacea seeds|
Can you guess which of these two sedum I pinched back?
|Carypoteris - I don't seem to have written down the specific type|
The Side Yard (Abeille Allee)
I should rename this the Engergizer Bunny garden. So many of the plants keep going, and going and going...
Like this hibiscus. It's been blooming nonstop since July. It's right outside my kitchen window and provides such an amazing view.
My numerous Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' plants have been in bloom since June. Three solid months of nonstop color. Amazing.
The newest additions to the Allee are already showing themselves to be worthy. Penstemon 'Delft Blue Riding Hood' and Geranium 'Rozanne' were 1-inch plugs when I planted them in June and are already bloomig.
This silver lace vine serves two purposes - it creates a privacy screen for our front porch from the neighbors, and it provides some nice shade on the porch in the summer months. It needs some trimming, though!
|Polygonom aubertii - Silver Lace Vine|
The Front Yard
|Gaillardia. I love the seed heads after the petals fall off.|
These plants are just getting started and will put on a great show over the next month. On the left is Aster 'Alma Potschke' and on the right is Aster 'October Skies'.
|This zinnia is as large as my fist|
|Caryopteris - this was split from the plant in the back|
That's my end-of-summer/early fall show for Bloom Day! Here's hoping I have more time between now and the next one to get outside and have some fun! Thanks to May Dreams
