Gorgeous pictures.
Snapdragons are my new love in the garden. I have several packs of seeds for them next year.
Maximillian Sunflowers are amazing...they are so robust. They kept blooming even though it got cooler outside! They are still in full force in my yard too.
(Love those basil heads! I miss those...mine didn't do well at all this year)

I LOVE this African Blue Basil. It doesn't skip a beat in drought and cannot set seeds since it is a steril hybrid and a tender perennial. I would surely save seed if I could and share! I had three plants in the garden; 2 were cuttings from the mother plants. I brought back in the mother plant already, but you can see even the cold and below freezing temps/fall frosts we've had also haven't bothered it :D

I love the Max too, but will be digging then out and away from the flower border. Next year they will have their own spot up against a wall.
