It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Tonight's Bloomin' Tuesday post is going to be short and sweet. We had a great weekend camping. I finally got in the shower around 6 after putting everything away and I'm exhausted.

We've had beautiful weather and I was excited to see my new Anemone was open when I got home. It's a little pinker than the picture shows. Love it!

The mums I bought this year are open now, also.

The wagon is still blooming so I just set the mums around it.


I have three planted mums that come back. This is the first to bloom this year. The others have lots of buds so I'm hoping the weather holds so they bloom. There was a frost at camp one night but none here so far.

A few volunteers from the bird feeder on the deck. I actually had a spot about 1 and a half feet around that was full of sunflower sprouts. Jerzie was a little upset that I got rid of them but there was supposed to be grass there.

I don't have any perennial asters but the wild garden has several wild ones here and there.
I love that the peony tree has such pretty fall color.

No way it can beat out the burning bush this year tho.

I don't think I've ever seen it so red and full of berries.

That's the extent of the fall color around my garden. I'd love to see what's colorful in yours. Just add your name, state and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on your blog. Since I did a lot of walking over the weekend, I'm looking forward to a virtual walk around your garden.

Looks like you are holding on to the last bits of color like I am. That burning bush is just gorgeous. I think I need one of those too.

Hey Jean! Glad you had a good weekend. Thought of you.
We did Berlin, Ohio yesterday afternoon through today. Great place!
We got home about 7:30.
Tired.
All is unpacked.
Read to hit the hay, too!

What lovely color you have in the garden, the mums are so pretty and so are the anemones and the shrubs. Very nice!

I love the mums!

My flowers are still blooming like crazy - it is fall colors that are in short supply.

Welcome Home. Love all of the fall color around you, gorgeous Mums...I have been wanting a burning bush, is that the real name for it?

I do love the Burning Bush's red foliage against the tiny orange berries.

I did not think you would have a BT this week since you were camping. I am glad to hear you had a great time.
