Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - September, 2016

Cool nights, rainy days.  What a change from a few weeks ago.  Fall is coming swiftly with leaves already changing color and dropping from their branches.  I've been a little remiss in taking photos lately, but here is what is happening in the garden.

The one potted plant I had this year with begonias and kalanchoe:
Now you sedum:

May Night salvia still blooming.  What a trooper!
Garlic chives feeding the bees, but those flowers need to be clipped before they drop seed

A coral Knock-out rose still blooming profusely, caught with the morning rain:
Berries on a high-bush cranberry viburnum:
Old-fashioned Hosta lancifolia:
Hosta 'Marilyn Monroe' (see her curves) just starting to bloom:
A late-blooming physostegia that was chewed up by that pesky rabbit.  I may just cut back of of mine next year to keep them bushy.
Bye for now.  See you in October.
Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting.  Visit her site and find other garden bloggers.


  1. All very pretty especially the Sedum!
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  2. I need to get a late blooming hosta. Mine are long gone. Happy GBBD! Alana

  3. Such a beautiful garden. I could just plop a bench out there and sit and write for hours!

  4. Your photographs are all lovely, and you have inspired me to go outside and photograph my garden – just as soon as it stops raining! Barbara
    PS I’m very impressed with your Hostas. The slugs have been feasting on ours.

    1. No slug problem this year, probably because we had very little rain and tons of heat.

  5. I love those flowers. Your effort shows in the healthy plants.! I dont have a garden and have to make do by enjoying others!

  6. Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. So beautiful, Denise. Those roses are gorgeous.

  8. I saw you over at Jo's, so thought I'd visit my namesake. Love those pictures! Glorious!

  9. Your garden is so lovely! Thanks for visiting my blog on Wordless Wednesday. :) Marsha
