The above Filipendula 'Kakome' is always such a pretty sight this time of year. When other things are winding down this is just getting charged up.
I need to plant some in front of these beautiful Japanese Anemones.
The lamium that is in flower pots as filler is blooming again.
This little dahlia has bloomed all summer for me. It is one of those little short ones. It doesn't make a very good cut flower as it doesn't last long in the vase. This might be why it has done well in this dry summer.
This mum has been in the ground for years. I don't do anything to it. No extra water etc. It is so reliable and at this time I appreciate the cheerful yellow blooms.
My poor Toad Lilies look pretty pathetic if you look at the foliage. Don't look at it.
Just look at those lovely blooms.
Something I learned this summer...that Lamium does well as a pot filler. It usually goes dormant in the ground here during summer. It often dies out because of our long dry spell. (I am trying not to complain) It looks quite good in a pot and it reblooms. Nice.
What do you have blooming in your garden this month? Do you have anything you will protect from the coming frost? We are to have frost this weekend. I will let all be.
