October 26/ Nature Notes

It's still garden season!

We've experienced a couple of mild frosts but some flowers still continue to bloom in my gardens. I took these photos on Sunday. We have had a few days of overcast skies and rain with ONE sunny day in between.

Largest square: flower fly on toad lily (Tricyris). Moving clockwise: Hydrangea 'Limelight' . yellow butterfly bush (Buddleia), barberry (Berberis 'Rosy Glow), phlox, and seedheads of grass (Miscanthis).

even yesterday wasn't too bad before the rain set in again. I am going to have to cut the grass if we don't get a killing frost soon!!

The color of that hydrangea is just perfect for me who loves pink!

Kate said...

I regret saying it, but you might as well kiss the sunny days good-bye as winter starts to roll in. You brighten the page with your flowers!

I always have to choose a favorite in your mosaics, this time it is the spectacular toad lily.

Lovely shots from your garden. The toad lily is very striking and I'm always a sucker for grass seedheads. It's a shame more people don't let their grass go to seed.

You have a very beautiful garden! Must take a lot of work!

Love all of these EG, and it reminds me I best get out and take a shot of my Toad lilly.

The toad lily is striking! Beautiful collection - I like seedheads.

Sorry to hear about the grey skies recently. However, flowers, plants, and critters, seem to have pleased you constantly. Toad lily is first to me, and the seed heads of the grass look like Japanese pampas grass. Thank you for sharing the beauties of nature in season around you.
