My one regret is that I don't have room to bring in a couple left over pots of flowers that are still going strong. Below you can see this orange creation that has been such a good bloomer all summer, up until now. I just hate to let it go. This pot has also been a great performer. I just love begonias. They do so well in my shady back garden. The Streptocarpus 'Black Panther' in this planter has been great too. They make a hard working pair. I love to watch the hummingbirds work the begonia blossoms.
The Black and Blue Salvia that my Sister talked me into buying this year is a winner in my garden. I will be purchasing more next spring. I might even try seeds as this one seeded around itself this summer. I bet they would be easy to grow from seed. It only got afternoon sun and it bloomed like it was happy. The hummingbirds and bees really liked it too. Gee, I miss the hummers and bees already.
A steppable I planted late this summer is settling in quite well. It is a Red leaf Thrift. They are tiny clumps and they even have tiny blooms that stick up high above the little clumps of reddish leaves. I am so pleased with how they have taken I wish I had bought a whole flat of them. I just bought a few to see if they would take in this pathway.
