Bloom Day for October!

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!

    I have a spreading patch of geranium wlassovianum and it never fails to dazzle in fall. It’s at a curve of the walk, and the afternoon sunlight catches it just so, lighting up the low edge of the walk with fireworks. One of my favorites, a great ground cover. Love your picture of it!

      Your patch of Wlassov’s sounds beautiful Laurrie! Share a picture if you can.

    Scott, Don’t you just love ‘Chocolate’ at this time of the year? I have just one plant in my garden but it sure it a bright spot on such a gloomy and blustery day.

      Yes, I do love that plant Debbie. Great color and presence all year, and then cheery blooms when most others are browning!

    The geranium is screaming fall in color. Nice photos. You still have bees? Ours are already down for the winter.

      I was surprised to find this bee, as it was a cold and windy day when I shot it. I’m just glad it was able to find some sustenance! Thanks for the comments.

      Thank you Cindy! Nothing special, A Sony Cyber-Shot point and shoot. I am hoping to upgrade next year so that the close up shots are not so tricky. Thank for stopping by and commenting!
