Fall blooms are starting to show off in my garden this week. From the short 6 inch ‘New York’ Asters to the tall 3 foot Aster ‘Bluebird’ I’m pretty convinced I need more of these perennials. They stood up to the heat, drought and whatever else this summer threw at them. I might of jumped the gun planting Pansies in September but they have done fine with a bit of water in the morning. Their all in containers which require more pampering anyhow. This ornamental oregano ‘Kents Beauty’ is kicking into gear again now that summer is about over here. The actual flowers are the purple tubes between the colorful bracts. Finally my Sedum ‘Rosy Glow’ has been a trooper putting out sporatic blooms since the first flush last month. To see what’s blooming in other gardens or to join in, please visit our host Jean @ Ms Greenthumb.
note: We’ve been getting rain since Sunday night. Last time I checked the rain gauge it was over 2″.
