There are a few more days left in the time of vegetation. I see freezes scheduled for Saturday through Tuesday morning. This extra crispy fall is about to get crispier.
Today there are flowers for Bloom Day. I have autumn crocus.
I have a nice patch of the Yellie Mum. All the other mums did not do so well the past two negative digit winters. The Sheffie Mum was engulfed by the Lush. That didn't help either.
One out of five starts of the newest pink mum survived. Now if the cats would just stop doing their business on it. Of course that might make it better next year.
I have some fall color.
And a lot of blue and white asters to go with my fall color, for a few more days anyway.
The native Witch hazel, Hamamelis virginiana is starting to bloom. Weathers depending it could keep blooming into November. Lisa, time to watch your Witch Hazel.
The chimney has blue asters.
And a bit of fall color. Soon the world will be all naked. The time of vegetation is coming to an end.
That is when the mums come in, at the end. I found this one down in the sunny utility meadow. I bet there will be all kind mums to see at Bloom Day headquarters. Stop in. Have a look around a blooming planet.
