The growing season here is so fleeting here in upstate New York, but that is why it is so cherished. In just the blink of an eye, frost would have hit, and snow will be back on the ground. Or so it seems on this September Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, where gardeners gather from all over the world to show what is blooming in their yards or homes.
In another week, it will be fall. Here in my zone 5b garden near Johnson City, in upstate New York, the fall flowers are opening on a beautiful sunny and mild day.

Our Japanese anemones are just starting to open.
We still have summer flowers - for example, these garlic chives, which make great cut flowers for my kitchen table.
