It Really is Hinting About Fall Around Here

Belinda tells us that the light is changing in England and fall is definitely in the air there.  We are not quite that far into the season here, but there are definitely changes.  The cooler days and increased rain over the past week have started to work their magic.  
The last of the summer flowers have perked up and started to bloom some more. 
 The garden phlox has re-bloomed after a severe cutback last month.
A few spring bloomers have decided to throw a few extra blossoms out of season.
This viburnum only bloomed a little in April - it was too hot then.
And, the first of the harbingers of fall are starting to pop out.
The fall anemones bloomed in July, but they are back.
Phystostigia - Obedient Plant is always one of the first fall bloomers.
 Lady's Mantle
Sedum 'Madrona' is one of my favorites.  A rounder bloom and a darker pink than some other varieties.

This chrysanthemum is ahead of the rest, but many of them bloomed in June and are getting ready to re-bloom now.

An old favorite - Sedum 'Autumn Joy'
All in all, it's lovely!


  1. I agree "Lovely." I always look forward to fall, but this year I am sad to see summer end. I feel as if with the drought we had this year my garden got short-changed. Yours is beautiful.

  2. I love the anemone blooms. A friend gave me some to plant in my garden with the warning that they would become aggressive but they didn't even overwinter. One day I hope to get them to love growing in my garden.

  3. Lovely blooms! look forward to seeing more Elle

  4. Although I really like spring and all the flowers that bloom after a long winter, I LOVE Fall. You have beautiful flowers in your garden.
