Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - September 2013

How on earth can it be September already? It seems it was June only a couple weeks ago. Yikes! I haven't yet begun the yearly indoor migration for the tender plants and I'm way behind with that task.  Double yikes! Maybe the frost will take care of thinning my collection somewhat as it seems I'm unable to thin the ranks down myself.

Anyway, I took a bit of time this morning to run about with my camera and snapped a few things that are still looking good. The borders are looking a bit worn and frayed around the edges but that's to be expected in mid-September.  The annuals and tropical plants are still putting on a great show and the fuchsias are lovely right now. The trycirtis, hydrangeas, persicarias, anemone, caryopteris are blooming and there are still a few Echinacea with good looking flowers on them. As always, Many thanks to Carol from May Dreams Gardens for hosting this monthly floral extravaganza.
