We’re closing in on the end of October, but there’s still lots of colour around here. And I’m not talking about fall colour….
The mums I brought from the townhouse hit their peak last week (when I took these pics). They are just starting to fade, so I expect that they will stay pretty colourful until the end of the month.
The neighbour’s Morning Glories are still peeking over the fence and still providing a few blooms here and there.
There are still a few strawberries, though they are small and probably won’t ripen before the frost. The Tickseed still throws up a bloom here and there.
Each of the new Butterfly Bushes has put up a small, but beautiful bloom stem. All three have really grown since I put them in so I expect good things next year.
And last… the lawn is just full of wild violets.. they don’t really get a chance to bloom because of the lawn mower….
But this little guy managed to stay low enough to evade the mower blades. It makes me wish I didn’t have to keep th grass short.. I’d love to see more of these little guys! (even though if left unchecked, they totally take over!)
Anything still blooming in your yard?
