|Not everything has collapsed with the first wack of cold weather , but quite a lot !|
|The mashed up shade garden ! I 'll leave it melt down on it's own .|
|The best seed heads on Clematis Helios|
|Emilia javanica |
More late blooms , before they are all finished , this time the front garden .
|Iris 'waxen beauty' |
I've been helping out at ' Aikens Iris garden in Vancouver all summer. At this time of year they have a cull of the Iris that are to be dropped from the catalog . Terry the owner was sad about loosing one of his own hybrids 'Waxen beauty ' , so one of them came home with me ! It's a re-bloomer . I think It's growing on me .
|Rosa Radway sunrise|
|Choisya and friend|
|Cosmos summer dreams|
|And this one !|
|I've missed so many months of bloom day posts that I thought I'd have a look to see what blooms are still out this month . Some of them are a bit raggedy , with all the rain recently . Rabdosia longituba often never gets a chance to bloom , it's so late that the frost gets it , or the dry weather makes it too miserable .|
|Fuchsia 'whitenights amethyst'|
|Chrysanthemum 'Sheffield pink' from Alison|
|Campanula of some sort|
|Salvia gregii or christine|
I grew these from seed this year . Christine is more hardy , but Gregg has a better color . Which reminds me to collect seeds from both again !
I 'm not sure which ...Moerhelm beauty, mariachi 'Fuego' ,or Sahin's early .
|Salvia black and blue|
|Aster leaves 'kurt'|
|Calendula of some sort.|
|Zinnia giant purple|
|Zinnia ...I have no idea which one|
|Mahonia 'soft caress'|
|Rosa 'Sally holmes' looking very pink .|
That's all the blooms in the back and side garden . Hope I haven't forgotten any ! I'll have a look out front tomorrow .
