As I walked in the garden this morning I couldn’t help but notice a few late fall flowers blooming. Since we are now having cool mornings with temperatures in the 50’s I didn’t expect to see any flowers. This hydrangea is on the south side of our home and has done well there. It has grow nearly 4 foot high and 4 foot wide. This was the only flower!
My wife grows daisies, they have bloomed all summer….. again this was the only daisy flower on this plant.
We have 8 of these plants in the garden and in the Spring they are full of flower, love the fushia color.
I am not sure what the name of this plant it, it is a volunteer, some sort of wild flower.
This purple wild flower is a volunteer as well, another native wild flower.
Our roses have done well this year!

thank you Roberta!!
Such clear photos, and such color! Your fuschia colored flowers are Dianthus, Michael. The white ones look like white Ageratum. The next ones appear to be asters. A second spring. YOur wife is fortunate to have daisies all summer. Mine didn’t start until just a few weeks ago for some reason. What a magnificent hydrangea! I hope your day has been a good one, WG
thank you Elizabeth, I wasn’t sure on the wild flowers.
Interestingly, I found a little patch of white asters by the driveway today which look just like the ones in your photo. Hadn’t even noticed them until today. Always surprises out there when we just go and look.
Lovely blooms in your garden. The hydrangea is especially a nice treat.
thank you for visiting…
The white flowered plant looks like it might be white snakeroot (Eupatorium rugosum .) It’s quite toxic and is the plant that causes milk sickness. If you like you can read about it here: http://nhgardensolutions.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/mid-september-wildflowers/
