What is blooming in your fall gardens?


I hope that all of you will join in on this thread and show us what you have growing and blooming in your flower beds, gardens, greenhouses and homes.

As another year comes to a close and we are all getting ready to put our plants once again to rest it is nice to show off all of our hard work, worries and patience that we have lavished on seedlings, fussy plants, and vegetable beds.


Here are some of my flowers and plants that I want to show all of you that are blooming right now.

Marigolds;






1st Rose of Sharon bloom. I grew these from seed this year! I planted the seeds in March no less. I was really excited.



Gazania. I know it was on its way out but I loved the contrast in the bloom.


Morning Glories.


Blue Pea vine.


Moonvine Bud.


Here are a few other things that I thought were interesting even though they are not blooming they are growing and thriving.

Brug from a cutting. Strawberries & Cream.


What I am hoping beyond all hope is a Dutchman's Pipe bud?


My cactus collection a small group of them anyhow.


Some Longan and Lychee seedlings.


A Travellers Palm seedling that I grew myself. I had 3 seeds to work with.


A Aloe species, a cross I am sure. I saved it from certain death last year on clearance. I had a whole little bowl of them and over the course of the year swapping I have found a lot of them homes. This one decided to bless me with a bloom stalk and later I will show off the blooms.

I've been busy keeping up with leaves! and my wee one has had the stomach bug this week.
Last weekend I filled my window boxes with mums and filled all my planters with different colors that blend well together and scream FALL IS HERE!!!
Today I divided some daylilies(tiger lily....I think) that were huge, I must have made 6 groups from each of the big clumps. I only finished two before the rain came.
Oh, and last weekend I planted some bulbs that Kettish sent me

smurfy - Thank you for the compliments. But I am so disappointed about the Pipe Vine .

seasonedwarrior - those flowers are amazing thank you for sharing.

sweet things - would love to see some pictures when your little one gets better. Sorry that he is sick.

beavercreek - those Morning glories are beautiful.

I found them in my abandoned blackberry patch twineing over everything. God plants a prettier garden accidentally than I can on purpose.

MR, when that piece vines out, each leaf will have a flower bud sprout from it, and they form fairly fast, buds double in size each week. give it 6-8 weeks you'll have some buds. Maybe even an open flower. Oh the plant stinks to high heavens.
