Here are a few of the things blooming in my garden this month
I really don't have that many roses in my garden but they're so photogenic and seem to have been blooming just in time for bloom day for the last few months.
Asters (or whatever they're calling them now.)
Last summer, some guests were coming over and there was this blank spot in my garden so I went to a box store and got a huge blooming dahlia to fill the spot temporarily. (Oh right, like you've never done that in a pinch.) The poor thing kept blooming even though it wasn't in full sun. Anyway, I forgot that it was there until I stepped on it early this summer and broke off the emerging sprouts. Of course I thought that it was dead so I didn't stake it. Things grew up around and I didn't think much of it until I started seeing dahlia foliage peeking out and now these huge 12" across blooms. Of course, they aren't standing straight up but it's amazing what they can do nearly lying on the ground.
impatiens omeiana silver pink is always one of the last to bloom for me but mostly I grow it for the foliage.
Echeveria 'Topsy Turvy'
The tuberous begonias are still blooming to beat the band. Here's Begonia boliviensis.
Wishing you all a very happy and flower-filled October bloomday. Garden Bloggers' Bloom day is hosted each month by Carol at May Dreams Gardnes. Be sure to visit to see what's blooming all over the world!
