october bloom day 2014

Happy October Bloom Day.  The first leaves are starting to fall, and I still have a few blooms to share.  Yay for wildflowers and pass-along plants!

I just received this begonia, hopefully I can overwinter it.

These little daisies have multiple flowers per stem.

Wild Asters
These low growing asters are all over my front yard.
I cleared out all of the zinnias this week
to make room for some perennials. 
I'm still enjoying the blooms though!
Honorable mentions:
  • The impatiens are still going strong.  Love those guys!! 
  • My mums aren't looking so hot right now.  I'm not sure if it's an adjustment period, neglect, or not enough sun.  They are still blooming, but not well enough to show off.  
 Anyway, it's not a lot this month, but I'll take it!

just a pretty picture... or three

When I moved into my house, spring was just about the only season I had flowers blooming.  (A rogue lawn crew has been known to mow my front yard without my asking, how rude.)  Fast forward to my 3rd fall in the house, and I finally have wildflowers blooming.  It makes me happy.

Goldenrod and unidentified Wild Aster, possibly Late Blooming Purple
Blue Mistflower from our fall plant swap.

Not a wildflower, but my baby rose, Cramoisi Superieur.
Happy Thursday.
