Hi Darla,

Nice pictures! It's surprising that you still have flowers. Our forecast includes the possibility of a little SNOW! I'll believe it when I see it!

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful your garden.
Beautiful flower shots.

We're getting some rain today, where was all this rain in Aug? In spite of the rain beating them up some your blooms still look great. I only have my Pansies & Mums left now. :(

Hi Darla- Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my Goldenrod and Bee picture. Goldenrod being a big allergen is a myth. Although it blooms in the fall, it is mostly chenopods and ragweeds that people are allergic to, since their pollen is spread through the air by wind. Goldenrod pollen does not readily enter the air, since it is designed to stick to bees like the ones in my picture. Thanks again for being curious and taking the time to comment!

Dani said...

Hey Darla, we finally got the rain yesterday morning and I'm afraid alot of my plants took a beating as well.

Darla said...

Thanks for all of the kind comments although my gardens are in SAD shape.
Rosemarie: the header is a small portion of one of my flower gardens this past July.

Marmee: It only snows here in our dreams or the boxed snow we add water too that you will see soon!

Nice collection of flowers that is still resisting the time! The first photo I like the most.

Leora said...

You have such a wide variety of flowers in your garden. So pretty!

I guess it's better to have too much rain than not enough. Other countries are suffering droughts.

fishing guy said...

Darla: What a wonderful series of flowers in your yard.

RuneE said...

I'm getting envious - you have got half the Flora here!

Gattina said...

You are lucky to still have flowers outside ! I would have to go into a flower shop. The once I took for today were in Egypt.

Roses and Lilacs said...

Hey Darla, enjoyed your flowers. If I had any blooms the would be buried under 6-inches of snow;)

Leedra said...

It amazes me that you still have flowers, and after showing us you DO have fall colors. We lose our flowers when we get our fall colors.

Becky and Gary said...

Wow you have so many flowers blooming all at once. Of course we won't see them till next spring. It's so nice that I can find flowers at this time of year to look at for those of us in the "deep freeze" Thanks for sharing, and I left a note for you on my blog.
Take care.

Bernie Krausse said...

You are so lucky to have an incredible assortment of flowers. Quite beautiful.

ramblingwoods said...

Oh..you still have some..nothing but snow here..

Pam/Digging said...

You have a lot in bloom so late in the season. I especially love the pineapple sage, and I'm wishing for some of your rain.

Merisi said...

I hope the sun does come out and bring better days for these beautiful flowers to regenerate and thrive.
