Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - October, 2017

After a summer of little or no rain here in my part of southeastern Michigan, we have had rain for a good part of this week.  The grass never looked this good all year.  Unfortunately, when it dries out, it will have to be mowed again.
Join me for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day today.  I took these pictures this week before the rains washed every bloom away.
 Michaelmas daisies
 A single Bonica bloom.  
The coral knock-out roses are still hanging in there, along with the bugs looking for food.
 Fall leaf color on 'Palace Purple' Heuchera
Fall leaves on doublefile viburnum
 A dwarf quickfire hydrangea that is still blooming
 Another hydrangea, species unknown
And blooms on the limelight hydrangea that I leave in place over the winter
 And last but not least, the blooms on the wild grasses
 zebra grass
To see what is blooming in other gardens, head on over to May Dreams Gardens.

    1. It has been so dry here, that even with three inches of rain, the beds are not muddy.

  10. Those roses look great - nice that they keep blooming so late in the season for you.

    1. What's more amazing is that the Bonica rose hasn't been eaten by the deer - yet.

  11. You still have lots of colour in your garden, mine is fading fast. I've spent the day scrubbing out a greenhouse, lots of green mould! I'll feel good when it's done!

    1. I just finished spreading baking soda on the moss growing in the garden. It was terrible this year.
