Wednesday Blooms - The Last Flowers of Summer

Today, I am in Asheville, North Carolina, several hundred miles from home.  Trees are starting to turn here, and it still is summer.

Because I have these photos ready, though, I am going to concentrate on flowers from back home in upstate NY for this last Wednesday Blooms post of summer.

The first couple of pictures were taken in early and mid September in Binghamton, New York.

A mystery ornamental. Does anyone know what this lovely flower is?

Smoke tree.

This was taken in the small town of Owego, NY.  For some reason the blue is very prominent.  This is a yellow trumpet vine.
Last but not least - near a grapevine in Binghamton, I found these lovelies.  Any guesses?

Hopefully, after I get back home next week, I'll be able to share some of the blooms of my travels with you.

  1. I think your first mystery plant is Turtlehead (Chelone). Hope you're enjoying your vacation! Chilly up here!
