Anyway, here's what's flowering in my garden and in the greenhouse.
|My Brugs are still going strong, but all you get today is a closeup of a flower. They're still filling the garden with wonderful scent.|
|I don't recall offhand the name of this Dahlia, but it's perfectly matched with the Panicum behind it.|
|The same Dahlia, but a different flower with a bit more pink on the petal tips.|
|Sedum 'Autumn Joy'|
|Calendula 'Solar Flashback' is still producing flowers. I need to get out there and gather seeds.|
|This pink Nicotiana sowed itself from plants originally planted over a year ago.|
|One of just a few last California poppies|
|A golden Alstroemeria (possibly 'Tangerine Tango')|
|Arbutus unedo compacta|
|Chocolate Joe Pye Weed (not called Eupatorium anymore, right? Ageratum something?)|
|Fuchsia magellanica has been flowering pretty much all summer|
|Fuchsia magellanica aurea too. Although they're common in the PNW, no garden here that wants to attract hummingbirds should be without these great plants.|
|Newly planted Geranium 'Ann Folkard' has produced its first flower.|
This past weekend, Nigel helped me with "The Great Migration" of tender plants into the greenhouse. I had already cleaned all the dying tomatoes out of it, and installed two more wire racks for holding plants. Some of those plants are flowering.
|Aloe backed by the strappy leaves of a magenta Cordyline|
|Also a Begonia|
|Tiny Cactus flower|
|Alstroemeria 'Rock and Roll' might survive the winter outside if we actually have the mild winter they're predicting, but I had room for it, so it came in.|
|Euphorbia millii (Crown of Thorns) has been flowering since I bought it this spring|
And, in the category of incipient flowers, here are a couple of buds.
|Christmas Cactus (or maybe Thanksgiving Cactus)|
That's it for Bloom Day, hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Check out her post here, and also the many posts from bloggers around the world.
