It's Fertilizer Friday over at http://tootsietime.blogspot.com/ and GGBD over at http://maydreamsgardens.blogspot.com/ drop by both of these wonderful blogs to join or just have a look see at what's going on in other gardens.
I am always excited to see the Sheffield Mums-Chrysanthemum Koreanum-'Sheffield' begin to bloom in October. A small shovel full of these were scooped up from my Mom's garden after she passed. They are one of my favorite flowers. (featured in my header)
I have spread these throughout my gardens. Hopefully in a year or two I will have an outstanding display.
They begin peachy and turn almost white.
Vinca with Angelonia (sp)
Second go around with Cosmos. These reseeded from the early summer ones that bloomed.
Blue Bedder Salvia, Torenia, Gomphrena (sp) and weeds.
I can hardly wait to re-work this area...geez
Scary, isn't it? I pulled out the Marigolds as they were completely covering the stepping stones.
One of my BES Vines...they must prefer slightly cooler weather.
Jatropha --since this zoned 10 - 11 and I am 8, I rooted some cuttings...so we shall see.
Ragin' Cajun Ruellia is a great 'comeback' plant..
Volunteer Impaitens from last year, BUT I didn't have any planted at the top of this garden bed, hmm.
Monarda is blooming for the third time this season.
Tradescantia spathacea-Oyster Plant, Moses-in-a-Basket, Boat Lily--not sure if this will return after the frost or not. Probably going to scoop some up and plant in a container. In some areas of Florida this plant is not welcome. Seems it likes to grow where most plants will not, therefore choking out some natives....hmmm
it also is a skin irritant. I haven't had this problem since I don't stand around rubbing it between my hands or brushing up against it. Plant it and leave it alone.
Today I am Thankful for all the blooms in my gardens!
