No frost here yet so the garden is hanging on. Many perennials are still popping out a few flowers which the hummingbirds
enjoy fight over. I took these photos yesterday, November 3rd.
|Passiflora 'Lady Margaret Red'|
I'm going to do my best to insulate the roots so it will winter-over.
|Fuchsia 'DeBron's Black Cherry'|
Little bulbous things!
|Fuchsia 'Santa Cruz' (I think)|
New this year and a very happy camper.
|Fuchsia 'June Bride'|
So darn reliable. I love her.
|Fuchsia 'Tom Woods'|
Another happy camper.
|Fuchsia 'Olympics Sunset'|
Maybe my favorite hardy fuchsia. It's not easy to pick a favorite.
|Fuchsia 'Baby Ann'|
Definitely the most floriferous of the bunch.
My gift from Mindy last May, still going strong.
|Clematis 'Venosa Violacea' being coy|
|Clematis 'Mme Julia Correvon' getting a little bent out of shape|
|Bacopa and Lohospermum doing the happy dance.|
|Argyranthemum 'Comet Red' totally outdoing itself!|
|Argyranthemum 'Comet Red' ... see what I mean?|
|And even more! Did I over-fertilize it?|
|Hydrangea macrophylla 'Glowing Embers'|
The first year it really lived up to its name.
|Acer palmatum 'Ben Hime' starting to blush.|
|Acer palmatum 'Ben Hime' look at that foliage!|
|Macleaya cordata or Plume Poppy, a favorite!|
|Podophyllum 'Spotty Dotty'|
Apparently impervious to the end of its growing season.
Also scoffing at the time of year.
|Hosta 'Great Expectations'|
Expecting nothing less that a beautiful finish.
|A NOID green Hosta slowly losing its green|
|Coleus, an impulse purchase, worth every penny.|
A plant that seems to pop up wherever it feels like it.
|Cornus alba 'Argenteovariegata'|
Admittedly under-valued by me.
|Colocasia sp. and Geranium palmatum|
No blossoms on the Geranium but the foliage almost makes up for it.
|Geranium palmatum with burgundy speckles. See what I mean?|
Poor plant. I always overcrowd it.
Everything about this plant is stellar!
|Imperata cylindric 'Rubra' Japanese Blood Grass|
Finally my clump is getting thick.
|Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sike's Dwarf'|
So many shades of autumn here.
|Hardy Geranium foliage (and weeds)|
|A tiny baby Sweet Gum seedling! Yes, I'll be taking it out.|
|Deutzia foliage, even still in its pot it looks lovely.|
|Melianthus with water spots|
|More Melianthus just because one photo is never enough.|
|Hardy Banana foliage--still green!|
A plant which relished our hot summer.
Happy Fall, Ya'all!
