What’s in bloom

Surprisingly for late October, a lot. Or bits of a lot. Here are just some.

Zinnias are still going strong, though we had frost on the car windshields last weekend

Love this zinnia!

Cosmos are out. We have two types: pale purple and magenta purple. I prefer bold.

I'll take the magenta cosmos.

One surprise is that the white clematis is blooming again — and not being touched (so far) by the deer. There are five or six flowers now.

Morning glories are out too

This one is like the Eveready Bunny — it just keeps on going. It reaffirms our call that Blanket Flower is an All-Star.

This coreopsis has a similar look

I'd like a big clump of these coreopsis!

This was a hardy mum that came back (or maybe one of our Lowe’s 25-cent clearance purchases that paid off?) The clump is pretty big and I’m happy to share.

This mum is hardy!
