September Colors in Bloom

It's been a couple months since I've participated in Garden Blogger's Bloom Day so I figured I was due for a post! Amazingly despite a summer of neglect the garden has quite a few reliable blooms to share. If you like to think on the positive side you could consider the neglect as a test of what thrives with or without the gardener in less than ideal growing conditions!

Here's what's blooming this September in my garden:

Orange Cosmos - Self-sown 

Red Perennial Mums - a returning favorite!

California poppy. The color orange again!

Rudbeckia 'Cappuccino' - a little orange here too.

Garlic chives

Caryopteris 'Longwood Blue'! A great fall blooming shrub.



Purple Butterfly Bush

More purple from the naturally growing ironweed (Vernonia).

And of course a favorite fall blooming native plant:

Enjoy more blooms at Garden Blogger's Bloom Day!
