my September blooms
I took these pics yesterday and today so altho parts of the garden are winding down there are still some plants flowering well. Please ignore the weeds - it's been really wet and I've been busy with other things.
Country Dancer rose buds. I'm no longer deadheading so the hips can form.
Monarda 'Marshall's Delight' has many, many buds. This is it's first year.
Hydrangea 'Limelight' also a first year plant.
These old style petunias have had almost no deadheading and still doing well - I think because they are on the east side of the house and have been watered and fertilized well as they are near the roses.
Agastache foeniculum candelabra, Lavender Hyssop - first year also. I'm hoping this will self-seed generously altho I'll soon cut some leaves and blooms for pot pourri and maybe tea. Perennial sunflowers in the background.
Mustn't forget Bruin who came visiting yesterday and dug up and ate some decomposed compost that had been buried weeks ago! Wonder if he has a tummy ache. I'm now freezing my compost until he hibernates.
