Dahlias can always be counted upon to provide splashes of color and mixed bouquets right up until the first hard frost. This one is ‘Cheyenne’, purchased from Janet at her spring sale.
I’m crazy about this one, also from Janet, but unnamed. Color, form: everything about it pleases.
By this time, I am looking for fat red hips on the ‘Buffalo Gals’, but found this instead.
Anemone ‘Honorine de Jobert’ has been going strong for a couple of months.
As the grasses begin to tassle up, they combine nicely with the seedheads of the fading Echinops
Love the fuzzy little flowering spires on the Oreostachys
The only aster in my garden looks like a bridal bouquet.
The Hemerocallis ‘Still Life’ is racing with the weather. I’m pulling for these buds to open before we get slammed with the nasty stuff.
I’ll close with grasses catching the light against a dark background. This image speaks fall to me. Other gardens beckon. Go to May Dreams Gardens to gain access to a world (literally) of blooms.
