Not much happening

Finally moved some plants and did a little fall cleaning like pruning small trees/shrubs.
The weather has been perfect with temps around 68 degrees and mostly sunny, just the way I like it.
Not much happening in the garden since many plants are finished for the year, but it's not over yet.
Here are a few that are bringing color to the yard.

Montauk Daisies are always a winner this time of year.

Sedum and Red Dragon seem to go well together.

Impatiens are still surviving.

Hydrangeas and Rozanne are starting to weather.

Still eating tomatoes and basil.

Begonias are hardy and usually last till first frost.

Well that new shady bed got pretty crowded. Why do I always do that ?
The plants...
Lanterns or Aquilegia canadensid
Ajuga 'Burgundy Glow' and 'Catlin's Giant'
Helleborus 'Royal Heritage'
Sweet Woodruff
Jack-in-the-Pulpit Arisaema triphyllum.
Heartleaf Bergenia-Bergenia'Rotblum'
Also a variety of Heucheras/Coral Bells

Thinking I should thin out this bed.


  1. The bed looks wonderful. What a difference a few months can make. I love the shiny begonia too.

  2. Patsi for not much happening still have lots of colour.. I love the last photo bed just the way it is nice and full...

  3. Your shade bed looks exactly as it should look-in my humble opinion. No soil showing and lots of woven tapestry to enjoy. Love it!

  4. I think the shade bed looks great.

    I love all your daisies!

  5. That bed looks good to me! Your daisies look nice this time of year. We need to do some moving around before the bad weather sets in.

  6. Dear Patsi, You still have a lot going on in your garden! Love those daisies. And your shade bed is perfect. P. x

  7. Great images, Patsi ... all looks grand!
