Welcome to Robin's Nesting Place for the October Garden Blogger Bloom Day, hosted by Carol from May Dreams Gardens.
Not much is blooming here this month and some of the things still blooming are not looking very pretty and I'm kind of ready to end their misery and get things cleaned up.
The zinnias and cosmos are some that are not looking so great any more but are still blooming.
The impatiens are blooming but I'm ready to pull them from the front porch flower bed and get it cleaned up and plant some mums or pansies.
The salvia is still blooming and has seeded in some areas with new little plants just beginning to bloom. The verbena is still blooming and I also have several new volunteers from this as well.
I cut this purple wave petunia all the way back a couple of months ago because it looked terrible due to my lack of watering. I thought it was dead but it came back and is much prettier than the original plant.
A hosta is blooming...
as are the grasses.
This miniature rose bush is in full bloom.
The mums are beautiful and are the star of my October garden.
The anise hyssop was cut back but sprouted new growth and has a few flowers.
Salvia, sage and Lavender are still blooming.
Lantana and black-eyed Susan's have a few tired looking blooms.
That is my list for October GBBD. I'm already dreading the November, Garden Blogger No Bloom for me day. I must get some pansies soon.
