Autumnal blooms include annuals like Zinnias and cosmos

There are more autumnal blooms in my garden than I expected. I am trying to capture many of  them for my climate record.

We expect autumnal blooms like asters, but surprises are like the roses and zinnias.

By the time the sun came out and warmed the garden the bees came out to forage. There are still plenty of pollinators in  the garden when the  sun is out.  Other blooming plants include coneflowers, geraniums, cardinal flower, and joe pye weed. It gets very cool, in the 40s at night, but no frost yet.
