I am glad you came as it is a lovely day to take a stroll through the garden to see all the late blooming beauties!
The roses are still giving us some late season blooms.
The fall anemones are putting on a good show
This Jackmani clematis was later blooming then the others so it still has a few blooms on the terrace.
There are still a few blooms of shasta daisies around.
This is a tall fall aster- I enjoy having these late bloomers in the garden to extend the season.
I also love these late blooming monkshood as they add good color and are very hardy.
Another tall aster -different color.
You can see the frost has browned the limelight hydrangeas. Our garden is low lying with a brook going through the woods making it more of a frost pocket then some gardens on the Island.
This Elmshorn rose has lots of late blooms.
This is a short aster and the bees are loving them.
Pretty foliage colors add to the fall beauty.
Cimicifuga Bugbane is another plant I like to have for the fall-it does look good in bouquets also.
An aster that was a gift from a friend.
I picked this beautiful dahlia bloom that was almost lost in the garden-I will have to dig the dahlias soon but so far they have only been touched by frost. One night soon we will probably get a killing frost turning all the leaves black.
I love the delicate beauty of it- next year the plant should be bigger and better then ever.
This Julia Child rose is a hybrid tea rose and I don't normally grow them but I did fall in love with this rose when I saw it at Fanningbank so I ordered it from Pickering Nursery in Ont. I will cover it well for our cold winters and hopefully it will make it through if not it still didn't cost as much as a bouquet of roses and I have enjoyed it.
This is a more washed out shot but I wanted to show you how pretty it looks with the Autumn Joy sedum behind it.
