Beautiful, glengarry! You are ahead of us as far as asters, it probably will be next month before mine come out. Still hot, around 100 Degrees, which will last well into September, but October is usually a beautiful month here in Texas. That will be when we get our second flush of roses that have been resting through the hot weather.

I ordered some Texas native (?) foxglove seed that looks exactly like what you showed. From October into November we plant seeds, move plants, plant new roses, etc. Fun month to garden after our brutal heat down here...

Take care!

Hi Ogrose,
my Asters are only a nose ahead of yours as you will see in the picture below,..these are my main Aster,..Symphyotrictium novi-belgii,..and just starting to bloom today.

Oh boy you are still up in the 100's temperature wise,..while here its dropping,..today its down to 23C-72F,..its comfortable working the garden in that temperature.

I bet you are really looking forward to October,..milder weather and the bonus of your roses blooming,..interesting you ordering Foxgloves,..they really put on a good show and the following season you will find new colours seeing they cross breed.

Hope you have it all planned for the October-November gardening.

Philip.

Hi Sandi,
its a joy watching plants grow and bloom,..sometimes an entirely new bloom from crossing,..never a dull day in the garden,..the imagination can run riot,lol.

I am watching the Hydrangea changing from day to day,..it was from a cutting i took last year.

Hi Mytime,
that Wallflower never stops blooming,..it does so through all seasons,..even if it stopped in Winter the variegated leaf would be attractive enough.

Hi Glengarry, was looking at your pictures again, so beautiful! What are your winters like usually? Do you get a lot of freezing weather? Here in Texas, we go from 70 Degrees in January/February to freezing rain and snow a few days later, never know what to expect!

Just out of curiosity, are you retired, or just work on your garden when you can? I retired a little over a year ago, and it takes all of my time just to keep up with things at my age!

Stunning...absolutely stunning!

It's so much fun to see your photos. Your variety of plants is very different from what I can get in California. Because we are a major agricultural state, there has to be a lot of testing before they'll let new varieties in. So despite the fact we have two of the major plant wholesalers in the US, we don't see most of the plants you have.

I have a variegated erysimum, for example, but the flowers on our variety are very different, not as big as yours and with no color variation available at all.

Thanks for posting - what a wonderful show!

Hi Ogrose,
thank you for viewing my photographs,..i am always pleased when someone responds kindly.

Our winters here are described as being Mild,..Moist,.. and Changeable,..with abundant rainfall,..our coasts are warmed by the Gulf Stream and where i live its even more protected as i am in the Midlands,..the winter here tends to have a temperature of 40 to 50 F,..or 4 to 10 C,..so in all we have a lack of temperature extremes.

In 2010 we did have snow,..the worst on record,..you will get some idea from my video below.

Video===Sun and Snow.

Oh you asked was i retired,..yes indeed but a long time ago,..i retired when i was 48,..the plan was to do so at 50 but the opportunity arose and i took it,..that was 19 years ago,..lol,..you can calculate that.

The garden is just one step outside my sitting room so i tend to wander out there very often,..when not in the garden i am off on the Lake,..Lough Ree,..or the River Shannon,..isn't it great to be retired.

Hi Jkom51,
delighted you liked those pictures,..and you also have a Variegated erysimum,..you are the only person i know has one,..and you say our bloom here is different than yours,..i nipped the tip off one i came across in a garden center and took it home,..i certainly has grown since and i have gave away several plants of it from cuttings,..i have a friend in Oregon USA,..whom i sent cuttings to,..they all died despite the various ways of keeping them moist and protected,..its the long journey,..all of nine days.

My California Poppies were grown from seeds sent from California,..Aquilegia seeds i purchased in Park City,..Utah,..and some also came from Indiana and Maine,..i have Clivia growing from seeds from Virginia,..it makes the plants all that more interesting.

Two toned Aster.
