Since I missed GBBD again for the second month in a row, I thought I would share some of the current blooms in my fall garden. I’m seeing sort or a pattern with the shades of purple & pink. 🙂 Of course I threw in a brilliant orange Cosmos that appears to be a double form. This is thanks to the seed that my generous blogging buddy Tina shared with me last year. I’m hoping that it scatters itself about happily throughout the garden. Doesn’t it look great in contrast to the deep burgundy stems of the Purple Fountain Grass? I’m also curious about the true identity of my Solidago which I thought was the cultivar ‘Fireworks’. But after seeing Janet & Les’s plants I know that is not what I have in my garden. Guess I got another mislabeled plant and this one was mailordered years ago. Oh well. I’m tickled with the reddish stems of the Gaura, makes a nice contrast to the pink blooms. This is the second flush of the season and I’m in love with this perennial. The Hyacinth Bean vine is not only putting out fabulous flowers but these pods too. It took a bit for it to get to this stage but now it is a blooming machine. This is the first lonely bloom of the Aster ‘Bluebird’ but it shows promise with all the buds yet to open. Same goes for the Toadlily which has tripled in size from last season. All the rain we got last month gave it a gigantic boost this season. Of course there is lots more blooming in my September garden but these are the latest & greatest of the moment.
