While the sun was out I was able to get some leaves raked in the front yard and pulled up the dead Zinnias and cut some perennials back. While I was out there I found these flowers blooming.
The Kaffir Lily (Schizostylis) 'Fenland Daybreak' that I recently planted is just so pretty. I planted it where we can see it from inside and it's such a nice cheerful color.
My fall planter is still doing well. We still haven't had a frost so the Calibrachoa is going crazy with flowers.
The giant Lacecap Hydrangea had a fresh bloom recently which just pops against the dark purple older flowers.
Dahlias are luckily still doing great. I was planning to dig and divide the tubers this fall. I usually leave them, but I'd like to spread them to some other areas too. I found some great information on digging and storing dahlia tubers. Click here to read about how from the Snohomish County Dahlia Society.
The 'Iceberg' Rose always looks great against a blue sky. You can see that the two new buds are both pink.
One of my favorite shrubs is Daphne x transatlantica 'Summer Ice'. It's been in bloom for many months and still has more buds. It's foliage is just beautiful and is evergreen. I know some Daphnes are temperamental, but I have never had any problems with this one in the 4 years I've had it.
Erodium 'Flore Pleno' is so cute to me. I have this in a little terra cota pot near the pond.
I have a few more flowers blooming that I'm saving for Bloom Day on the 15th if they are still around after the "possible snow".
Fertilizer Friday is hosted by Tootsie at Tootsie Time every Friday. Visit her to join in or see what else is blooming.
