I reverently believe that the Maker who made us all makes everything in New England but the weather.
|This Mum was a double every year it's come up except this one.|
|Petunias making a final farewell......|
|The Lavender plants have bloomed several times this season. I grew them from seed and this is their 3rd year.|
|Chinese Lanterns.....If there's ever a nuclear war, Idgie, cockroaches and Chinese Lanterns will survive!|
|The Sedum is turning deep pink....a sure sign Fall is here.|
|Wild Asters....I think. Their true color is light purple.....|
|Gaillardia is on it's umpteenth bloom.....the pollinators are happy.|
|Another rose bud.|
|Boltonia? I'm not sure....but I love it.....it reminds me of looking through lace.|
|Another petunia hanging on.|
|The Hydrangeas are full of huge flowers but the colors aren't as vibrant as past years. It must be the dry weather.|
|Idgie imprisoned behind the dining room screen. She has spent two nights out in the past few weeks...much to her delight and our horror!|
Once again, the weather is crazy. It was 70F when we got out of bed this morning! It's only 75F right now but very humid.....humidity is my nemesis.
Andy & I went to church this morning. Our usual Sunday routine. He is on the praise team.....guitarist. It's always nice to see my good friends and listen to a great speaker full of wisdom. It's a small congregation which suits me fine.
Last year, I put 5 Mum plants in a galvanized tub. I pulled the dead plants out in the Spring and a bunch of babies came up! They're transplanted around the garden and a couple of them have buds! I'm very excited to see what colors they are.....Pictures will follow!
Today, I'm grateful that Idgie survived her adventures!
Happy gardening, Flower Freak.
