Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying this wonderful Fall weather!

We are also very excited to introduce our first guest blogger, Naomi Sachs ASLA. Naomi is someone who is very familiar with, and a passionate advocate of the garden’s healing and restorative powers. She is Founder and Director of the Therapeutic Landscapes Network ( and Principal at Naomi Sachs Design.

15 Oct Bloom Day for October!

It’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom day again, the creation of Carol over at May Dreams Gardens. The days are growing shorter and the blossoms fewer this time of year, but there still is beauty in the garden. I hope you enjoy these pictures from our little corner of the world!

Rremember to click on any image to see it up close and personal.

Bluestem Goldenrod (Solidago caesia) on the edge of the woods


Geranium 'Rozanne' still blooming

The happy faces of Helianthus!

Not sure why this Prairie Coneflower (Ratibida pinnata) is still blooming, but I like it!

Miscanthus 'Gracillimus'

Miscanthus 'Silberfeder'

Panicum 'Northwind'

This Echinacea 'Red Knee High' is a little beat up, but still beautiful!

An accidental combo, this Heuchera and Helianthus duo is wonderful!

This honeybee is still working the pollen!

Eupatorium 'Chocolate' is awesome on so many levels!


And for the pièce de ré·sis·tance!


The fall color of Geranium wlassovianum is amazing!


I hope you are still finding some things to ooh and aah over in your garden before we turn the corner and head straight into winter. Hopefully we’ll have one more Bloom Day Post before then!

All the best!
