...and I still have plants blooming! We never did get a real freeze back when we were worrying.
I'm just barely getting this in on Bloom Day. I've been busy outside - gardening.
Chrysanthemums with the last of the perennial sunflowers in the back.
The roses were rather beaten up by yesterday's rain, but the buds weren't.
The red sage is still blooming wonderfully. I'm trying to enjoy them all I can because we're going to have a real freeze midweek.
The yellow chrysanthemums are always the last perennials to bloom in the fall.
In the summer, I would never post a photo like this - weather-beaten impatience. Right now, I'm so happy they're still blooming!
Speaking of still blooming - I was amazed to find this today. This hibiscus usually finishes in September. It must have bloomed in the rain yesterday.
Twice-blooming azalea and a skipper.
Chrysanthemums and the last few blooms of the blue sage.
I was also surprised that this Black-Eyed Susan bloomed so late.
Tithonia - bedraggled but still blooming.
Blooms for the season to come.
