September’s Still Blooming

I’ve started cleaning up and putting away garden décor while the weather is still warm enough to handle a garden hose comfortably. It’s a depressing job, to say the least, since it’s a reminder that winter is on its way with its short days and cold days and snowy days. Ugh...

But until such time, I am still enjoying some flowers in the garden. Hey, I’ll take whatever my garden has to offer.

Not all the photos below are recent (some were taken last month), but most of the plants producing these lovely blooms are still going strong. I’m hoping they hang on for a little while longer.

Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’

Rosa ‘Fragrant Cloud’

Echinacea ‘Hot Papaya’ keeping company with Rudbeckia goldsturm.

Helenium ‘Mardi Gras’

Rosa ‘Morden Sunrise’

Gaillardia ‘Dazzler’

The bees just love these flowers!

Weigela ‘French Lace’ (back in bloom)

Rudbeckia hirta ‘Sonora’

Helenium ‘Ruby Tuesday’

Rudbeckia ‘Autumn Sun’

Heliopsis helianthoides ‘Summer Nights’

Tricyrtis ‘Empress’

Rudbeckia goldsturm

That’s it for this week’s garden post. Have a great day, everyone.
