My garden last Sunday afternoon
Fall is in the air and many of my late season plants are now blooming.
Largest square: a wasp on gooseneck loosestrife (Lysmachia clethroides). No one needs to tell me this plant is invasive. I know. I tried to tear it out of my gardens a couple of years ago...and looks who's back. Gooseneck loosestrife is pretty but I will be digging a whole lot out in the next few weeks. This time I'll leave a couple of plants since it's determined to be in this dry garden anyway!
Working clockwise: Buddleia (I'm not sure which variety bit it was the first of my Buddleia plants to blossom this year); giant rosehip of my Rosa rugosa; cranesbill geranium 'Roxanne', Japanese anemone 'Pembina' (Anemone hupehensis) and phlox.
Please note that I include the botanical names because they remain the same around the world but the common names vary.
