This will be the last post of the year for me showing live outdoor flowers at my zone 5 home. The flowering season is winding down here in upstate New York. We haven't had a frost yet at our house here in the Susquehanna River valley but people up in the hills have had their first frost.
So, one last outdoor Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, and please be sure to visit May Dreams Gardens for other lovely posts.
UPDATE: I just found out about a blog called Tootsie Time and their Fertilizer Friday - I'm excited about viewing a blog in Alberta. I hope I'll be permitted to link there, too although I'm a day late. Anyway....
Fall flowers in my garden include this pot of mums....
Cardinal basil. This is my favorite ornamental basil - slow to bolt and when it does, the flowers are so decorative.
This a rosemary in bloom. Rosemaries are not hardy here - we will be digging this up in the next couple of weeks and bringing it in for the winter.
And, last but not least, our last glad. This glad was planted last year, never bloomed, was forgotten about, came back (not hardy in our area but nature can surprise you!), and is now blooming.
