Flowers Move toward Senescence this Bloom Day

I know that feeling of slowing down and losing some of the spark of summer yet there's still life in the garden after the storms of yesterday.

Gulf Muhly back lit by the rising sun.

Lantana, Purple Heart, the last Zinnias and Gulf Muhly.

Next year I'll put Marigolds with Lemon Grass again.
Roses are going through that 'last of summer' stage, as
are Periwinkles and Pentas.

Salvia Leucantha and a Spider Web, sure sign of Fall.

Esperanza in a Last Hurrah of Summer.

Happy Bloom Day.

Bloom Day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens.

  2. I love Muhly! I have pink and it just started blooming the other day. Years ago we used to see a field of this and at certain times of day it was really stunning.

    You've still got some beauty going on at your gardens end for this growing season.

    Thanks for sharing ~ FlowerLady

  4. Despite the approach to senescence they are still lovely. I wonder why i don't see those darker color marigolds here, i always just see the yellow and orange, i almost got tired of them. BTW, i love that first grass photo most.

  6. I love Gulf Muhly--I don't have the right spot, so I have to enjoy other gardeners' muhlies--like yours. All such lovely perennials for the Southern garden.

  8. I love those marigolds! You have to appreciate annuals....they bloom so brightly and so long.

    Everything still looks very lush and beautiful down south.
