Currently blooming in my garden:
Petunias, including two full hanging baskets that I bought for a buck each from Lowes in late August.
Mallows, all self-sown. Some look like ‘Zebrina’ and some look like M. sylvestris.
Several colors of Phlox paniculata, all winding down.
It seems to me I usually have more kinds of colchicums blooming by now, but I haven’t checked my records to see if this perception is correct.
And, hey, look, you Austin bloggers. My larkspur is finally getting up to speed:
The last rose and the first chrysanthemums are blooming within a foot of each other. I’m not sure the colors go so well, but I’m looking the other way. Last year was the rose’s first year in my garden, and it was finished blooming by the time the mum had started.
Tunic flower and catmint are both still blooming, the catmint sparsely.
Three different black-eyed Susans.
And what’s up with this? My globeflowers didn’t bloom this spring. They started blooming in early August and they’re still going at it. I’ve never seen this before, have you?
And those words I’ve been dreading showed up on Weather Underground: Patchy frost after midnight tonight. Sigh . . .
