Clematis Love

Although there are people here in Oregon who are lamenting the lack of rain, I'm kind of glad the torrents are holding off a little while longer. It gives me a chance to enjoy the reblooming Clematis. No waterlogged petals here!

The Chinese Foxglove, (Rehmannia elata) continue to pump out blooms!

Aren't you all loving our Asters, right now? Are you calling them by their new and "improved" name, Symphytotrichum yet? It's taken me several days just to figure out how to pronounce it. 


Okay, I guess that's not too terrible.

My garden definitely didn't need another Aster but I couldn't resist this double, deep purple one I saw at a nursery last week while looking at bulbs.

Hopefully there's still enough yellow fluff for the honeybees.

Argyranthemum 'Comet Red' (Sorry it's blurry.)

Callirhoe involucrata is still pumping out a few blooms.

Next spring I will be sorry for letting my 'Painter's Palette' Persicaria bloom.
But it's so perty!
Last week, my daughter and I found another trough for sale at the Corvallis Habitat for Humanity ReStore. 

I think it's ideal for holding more veggies next year.

The hot summer was kind of brutal to this Acanthus so I couldn't resist take a photo of the new, luscious foliage.

We're still getting lots of strawberries.

And finally....

Take care my sweet garden peeps!
