This Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day arrives during a very mild October. We have had a very few fold nights with temperatures going below 40 degrees, but the daytime temperatures still reach well into the 70’s and even over 80 degrees. It has been fairly dry except for a couple of welcome rain we got as hurriane Nate touched us for a couple of days. The Fairy rose will stand in the the sprinkling of other rose blossoms, Folksinger, Peach Coral Drift, Purple Rain and Red Knockout.
We still have a few good pollinator plants blooming and filled with the buzzing of the bees – of all sorts. The bees have had to bend down a bit because when we have had rain it has come down hard and many of my plants are bent over – but it doesn’t seem to matter very much, except that you might notice my plants langour in my photos.
The hydrangeas are doing very well, and showing their interest in providing a living fence between my garden and my neighbor’s driveway.
We’ll run through the rest.
The Sheffield daisy blooms very late in the fall.
The nasturtiums show up all over the garden because I used them as a kind of temporary ground cover. I love them because they are so cheerful.
Though winterberries aren’t blooming at this time of the year, I had to show off my red winterberry and
my gold winterberry.
I thank Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Bloom Day and making it possible to see the gardens in bloom all across our great land.
