So it appears that we are skipping the sunny, crisp, beautiful days of autumn and moving directly into the cold, sleety, foreboding days of autumn. Under these conditions, I present an extremely brief Bloom Day post!
The salvia 'Plumosa' is on its last legs, showing the final blooms of its year.
I have one mum. Yes, one lonely individual mum.
I'm not a huge fan of mums (being the ultra-overused fall flower that they are), but I do love the color of this one, hence it's inclusion in my garden last year. It's in too much shade, but I'm enjoying how it looks next to the Japanese painted fern and 'Silver Veil' heuchera.
And my Very Confused Golden Alexander (Zizia aurea) is still blooming, even after a couple nights of hard frost! This plant is turned upside down, but it's making me smile with its oddness and resilience.
