Late Summer

Late Summer to Fall still offers colors that are pleasing to the eye
but a reminder that the fun will be over soon.
Still trying to keep most of the gardens looking good, but I know soon it will be time
to yank those annuals out of the ground and cut down the others.
Can't forget to leave some spent annuals and perennials for the birds to enjoy.

Lilly Turf(Liriope Muscari)"big blue"

Zinnias "sizzle"

Coral bells Heuchera Dolce"Peach Melba"

Black-eyed Susan Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm'

Pineapple sage


Sedum spectabile"Brilliant"

Coleus x hybridus


  1. I love the color of your sedum 'Brilliant'. My pineapple sage aren't blooming yet, but they're budding up now. The Goldfinch love to eat the seeds. They've already finished off my echinacea. I shook the seed heads and nothing rattled! So, I guess I can go ahead and cut those back. They are still eating the rudbeckia and agastache seeds. Hummingbirds are still here. Cameron

  2. Even if it is almost fall, your garden is still beautiful! What amazing color in that

  3. That coleus is beautiful! Mine is looking good, too and I'm going to try once again to winter it over. I did that the last two years but by spring, they were looking really sad.

    I love that photo of the Cosmos seed head. I can almost feel what it would be like to gather those seeds from it.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment so that I could come here and visit yours! I'm enjoying seeing your beautiful gardens!

  4. Is it fall already? ;-) Your garden kingdom is thriving with life and rich colors. My compliments on the great photography and wonderful posts. Looking forward to enjoy more of your art. Greetings from the Mediterranean,
