Hi all, we are supposed to get a couple inches of rain tonight so I thought IÂd take a walkabout with the camera this afternoon. There are still a few visual treats out there even though itÂs getting past the middle of October.
The ÂKnockoutÂ rose is just looking spectacular right now. I agree with everyone here extolling the virtues of this rose. It has been good looking all year and not a bit of black spot anywhere. IÂm going to look for some room for another couple of these beauties.
I was so surprised the other day when I spotted these new blossoms on my Clematis ÂPerle dÂAzureÂ. IÂm thinking it is going to make me really happy next to this ÂBonicaÂ
A lovely ÂPeaceÂ rose
ÂCharles GrimaldiÂ is still blooming!
And this urn with the dwarf dahlias with the fiber optic grass is still looking great.
I havenÂt had time to prune this ÂLenaÂ fuchsia yet so IÂve been putting it out in the mornings to dress up the steps.
The last pristine dahlia blossom in the Mailbox Garden
The Sambucus ÂSutherland GoldÂ is still looking great.
And there are still some lovely aconitum blooming in the Driveway Garden
H. ÂEndless SummerÂ has a lovely fall foliage display
And it even made another lovely blossom head
The hibiscus has thrown another bud
Fall in the Terrace Garden
So things continue to go quietly to sleep for the winter and soon there wonÂt be any flowers left in the gardens but for now each little bit of color seems precious.
