Fall Beauties

September 17th, 2018

Even though the nights are getting crips (it was 39 one morning last week), there are still things blooming in the garden. ‘The Fairy’ rose is a favorite of mine, it blooms all summer long. I had a few of these in my Ohio garden as well.

The snapdragons are still blooming like crazy, it’s so nice to have a few annuals for cutting and color in the garden.

The hibiscus are blooming beautifully, as is this lovely anemone I added this spring. I’ll share photos of those tomorrow, as I got a new camera and am still figuring out all the settings for downloading the images.

What are you enjoying in the garden right now? Have you had a frost yet?

    ‘The Fairy’ is one of my favorite roses! I adore the petite blooms that are open en masse and the long bloom time.

    Susy, Fall has its own beauty. The colors are starting to show here in Nebraska. Temperatures are cooling off and the gardens are winding down. It’s a great time of the year, don’t you think?

    Have a great day enjoying the Fall season.
