I can barely believe that it is almost mid October. All the usual signs are present but I keep wondering... did this bloom this late last year? It could frost anytime you know. It would be early but very possible. Hurry up mums! Unfurl Muhly! I have a new aster to ID that's still only budded( was labeled Climbing Aster but is not- it's just tall,lol).
This aging Eucomis definately looks like late fall. The golden hues complement the Blue Oak Sage which is finally starting its fall show.
I've titled this shot- "Why I Love the Fall Garden"
The Swamp Sunflower is crowded I think- I'll remove the giants after they're done blooming to make room for the continuous spread.
I can finally stop lamenting on no Monarch sightings this year. I saw this one from my back door floating high above the big bed. I grabbed the camera and went in search, finding it just in time to get one shot before it went on its way.
Muhly watch: it's unflurling ever so slowly.
Happy Columbus Day!
