There are a few things going on in the fall garden.
The colchicums are still blooming in various places. This one is a waterlily form that lives in the Hosta Dell.
The wild aster I planted that is trying to take over the whole rain garden is blooming in a frenzy right now. The sulfur butterflies like it a lot, as do the honey bees, and numerous types of skipper butterflies. In this shot, a sulfur is posing.
In the same vicinity I have a hen and chicks plant that decided to bloom this year.
Like bromeliads, the plant that blooms then dies. You always hope they have several “pups” to continue the grouping, and this one certainly does.
Last, but not least, the sternbergia are finally blooming. I just love the bright yellow of this plant, it adds a nice note to the fall garden.
There is quite a nice group of these guys coming along, perhaps in a few days I can show you a drift of them.
The fall blooming crocuses have put their noses up. I don’t expect them to bloom until the weather gets a bit cooler.
Now, I really must get out there and do some weeding. The extended length of time I was gone allowed the weeds to get WAY ahead of me.
