Fall Blooms


blue and white hydrangea flower

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.
