October Bloom Day - 2009!

It's already the middle of October! Even though it's been dreary and cold (44 today!) here, there is still a surprising amount of color in the garden.

Various Rudbeckia, grown from seed.

Lots of what is still blooming well are the annuals.

I especially like these marigolds, grown from seed in the vegetable beds. They are so tall they fall over!
Butterfly bush is still going strong -- both purple and white.

Finally, these are my favorite mums purchased this year. It is a Pelee Mum and this picture doesn't do it justice.

Happy Blooms to all!

Love those Gerbera daisies. Isn't it funny how a South African plant loves cool weather? I need to dig some to bloom under glass when it gets really cold outside.
