Blooming Friday~ Winding Down

It's Blooming Friday again! This is probably the last one before our first freeze ~ predicted for tonight. Our hostess Katarina has lots of flowers blooming out of season. The only out of season bloom I found in the garden was this lone Forsythia bloom still in bud. Forsythia is normally a harbinger of spring- so much so that it's used as a timekeeper of sorts. Too bad I haven't put that pre-emergent weed killer out on the lawn yet;)

This is the same type of mum that I've posted earlier planted in what's now a very hard to reach area under the Buddleia lindleyana. It blooms without me touching it all from year to year~ very carefree:)

A young Salvia regla 'Jame'~ I've tried this plant several times. We gardeners are an optimistic bunch aren't we?


The Muhlenbergia is as colorful and fluffy as it will get this year. The color fades quickly after the first freeze.

The plumes of Miscanthus 'Cabaret' have reached the puffy stage that they will wear from here on out.

  1. I just love Salvias. Our Muhlenbergia is in full bloom right now. Beautiful photos. I hope your garden fares well with the upcoming frost.

  2. Love the bright red Salvia - such an amzing colour!
    Enjoy the weekend!

  3. I love the color of that mum. Beautiful photo of the Miscanthus seedheads.

    I have resigned myself to the thought that Salvias are a fickle bunch. Worth the effort though!

  4. Fall flowers are especially appreciated...I do love the salvias...and the red ones are attractive to sulphur butterflies! I have no luck with muhlenbergia! The grass photos are delightful. gail

  5. Beautiful...what wonderful photos!Lovely!

  6. It is not the same in our Lord's garden. All flowers are beautiful and different. /Margareta
