Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – September
It’s hard to believe that it is the middle of September, and once again it is Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Only last month, summer seemed in full swing. Many of my favorite flowers were blooming and my tomatoes had not yet started ripening. Now, a month later, autumn is in the air. Many of my flowers are still blooming; but the evenings are cooler; and some trees are starting to turn color.
Here are a few of the photos that I have to show you for this beginning of autumn.
The first photo is that of a tree already turning and giving some gorgeous yellow and orange color.
The second photo is of one of the trees on our street whose leaves are turning a bright red.
Here you will see some rosehips on my rugosa roses. They are just about getting ready to harvest to make Rosehip jam.
And here are some bees on my sedum autumn joy which is just really beginning to bloom.
These are some of my asters a pretty purple I do not know the name of this faster unfortunately.
And these are followed by two of my favorite dahlias. The first dahlia is bright orange, almost a Chinese red, and is called Cheyenne.
The last dahlia is our purple and white one. This was a pass-along dahlia, and we do not know the name of it.
That is about it for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hostessing this meme. That way we all get to see what is growing in our gardens.
