I showed blooms of the Chaste Tree two posts ago, but here it is in scale. I actually thought of cutting it down a few years ago when a rough winter caused a very delayed return...so glad I didn't! So thrilled these phlox are still doing great. What do most gardens have in common this late in the season? Black-Eyed Susies, of course. In my case, it's actually too much of a good thing (even though I know they are your favorite, Randy ;) Geraniums looked somewhat stressed a few weeks ago but regular feedings of Miracle Gro has done wonders. Still enjoying some late-blooming daylilies...like this 'Maroon Branch'And cheerful yellow...okay, just totally blanked on the name....! 'Apple Crisp'Mums planted last fall are starting to show color This candy lily (Pardancanda) was labeled with the purple bloom so I was surprised when the buds opened also in orange/yellow. But I like the 'Sangria' bloom most.
This crepe myrtle was labeled a dwarf variety! It's especially beautiful at night when the blooms practically glow. Below are Autumn Joy sedum...which have never looked so robust! The vegetable garden has not been up to par this year. Very minimal produce but I confess it lacked my attention, too. What looks good now are these peppers. And cherry tomatoes. Pretty as any blooms, don't you think? I planted three different varieties in one grouping and was ecstatic when I came across this view of all three in one frame. Sweet Million (red), Sun Gold, and Chocolate! Taste wise, Sweet Million gets my vote! Anyone growing these fun varieties?
Have a great weekend, y'all!
