The flower posts are going to be winding down soon. Wahhh! It’s feeling more like fall around here again. The leaves are showing some color. This was on my bike ride today:
Not too colorful and more yellow than anything else. Maybe we will go north a little this weekend and do some peeping to see if the colors are better.
The annuals are still hanging on. Our temps were 30 degrees overnight last night with a frost warning, so I covered up a few plants. Not many since it is pretty late in the season, but the morning glories are still doing so well that I covered those:
Also one of the moonflower vines since it has a lot of buds on it.
Note how similar those flowers look. It’s because they are in the same family – Ipomoea – which is related to the sweet potato! There’s your trivia for the day.
I didn’t cover any zinnias, but they seemed to be fine today.
Even though seed packets are supposed to be one color, there always seem to be outliers. This was from the packet of the above zinnia:
It doesn’t even have the same form. That’s part of the fun of gardening, though. Like Forrest says, you never know what you’re going to get.
I’m still surprised at the size of the mums out front. This one is a single plant:
Side by side with the other one:
The one on the left just has buds and not open yet. It is more of a burgundy color. It had better get moving! LOL
That’s fall right there.
Any guesses as to why I bought this decoration? Candy corn! Tis the season 😀
Have a great weekend!
