Blooming Friday~ October 30, 2009

The late show continues here with plenty of flowers still in bloom. The leaves are colored up and falling. It's a beautiful time of year. The mornings have been dreary this week so all of my photos are from yesterday morning since it was fair.

The Angel's Trumpet was still very fragrant on Wednesday evening.

Mum 'Sheffield Pink' or 'Single Apricot Korean' is still looking great even if its neighbors aren't.

A couple of dreamy morning shots- Swamp Sunflower

Georgia Aster

Most of the salvias are still going strong ~ 'Cherry Chief' blooms from Spring until hard frost hits.

Salvia madrensis, Forsythia Sage is new to the garden this year. It was planted out in July. A few blooms are just opening on this very late bloomer.

I have been pleasantly surprised at the fall color of the foliage from Hibiscus 'Red Flyer' this year. The "aster" in the background is my noid that was labeled Climbing Aster.

My tall noid mum and Aromatic aster

Finally some real color from the Muhly grass ~ I really need to buy some next year just to see if I'll have an earlier show from the new clump.

This is the same noid mum as above only in another location in the garden. This clump is in part shade and not as vigorous. It just started blooming this week.
