We bought our Fall Mums last week
and got them in the ground.
When I planted them the blooms were
barely peeking out...
this week full force.

We prefer the sunny yellow ones,
they seem to go better with our decor
and are a bit hardier.

Here is one I put in the ground last year.
It's coming along nicely.

Purple Asters are out and about,

as are the yellow ones.
Both were planted as seeds a couple of years ago.

The guy at the local nursery said to dead head and
fertilize your Knockout Roses now and
they will bloom until

I still have Lantana and my Monkey Grass is blooming.

Next door at my neighbors,
Hydrangea is still showing off.

Lastly, my Hardy Begonia is
pretty in pink.

Happy Gardening.

I will be linking with
Fishtail Cottage's
Cottage Flora Thursday

Flaunt Your Flowers!
Fertilizer Friday!


  1. Your gardens are beautiful - what fabulous photos you've shared. I can tell that this is indeed your passion.

    (I popped over from the Buttermilk Cottage blog - it is wonderful to meet you too!)


  2. I don't think my asters are coming back. Not much in my drought-killed garden now...

  3. Your garden is still looking very nice...still colorful! Sadly, all my flower blooms have disappeared :-(

    Happy almost weekend Nanniepannie!

  4. It's so wonderful to still have some beautiful blooms. Lovely garden.

  5. I wish my thumb was as green as yours!

  6. Love the mums...I always deadhead my knockout roses.

  7. Thanks for the great tour... if you want truly winter hardy mums, check out the ones from the University of Minnesota...
    I've held over many of them for several winters and they do remarkably well here in Wisconsin... Larry
