GARDEN BLOGGERS BLOOM DAY - October 2007

Well, it's hard to believe the month is half over. We have had a few frosts, and even two days of snow, but overall, lovely and moderate temperatures so far this fall.

Blooming in my yard today:
bachelor buttons, petunias, and zinnias in my flowering pots (yep, I really need to pull these, but, they're blooming!),

pansies,
asters,
chrysanthemums,

cosmos,
two stella d'oro day lily blooms,
blue queen sage,
some type of Helichrysum,

lavender,
volunteer sunflowers, and a scattering of roses.
This yellow one (name? don't know, it was here when we moved in)
is one of my favorites.

Snow? You are doing pretty good if your flowers have already gotten through some snow! Thanks for joining us for GBBD.

Frosts and snow already? Your flowers are holding up amazingly well.

One snow was the 'come and go' type; it was gone after two hours or so. The other was a real snow storm, it snowed all day, and we got about 3 inches, but it warmed up enough for it to be gone the next day, too. Some of the annuals are sheltered in a pot under large pine trees, so they survived, and the perennials that are blooming now are tough, anyway.
