It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome to the next to the last Bloomin' Tuesday until next spring!

I've been watching this one lonely Dianthus for awhile now because it's right by my driveway. We had a heavy frost on Sunday and I was afraid I'd lost it. Today it is beautiful!

One more bloom on a small piece of Sedum I moved this year.

I forgot about this mum. I love the color but I think it's being over run where it is so I'll need to move it.

Pretty fall colors with Bunny Grass, Blanket Flower seed heads and some spearmint that has turned dark burgundy.

This Dead Nettle will really need to be cut back next spring. I can't believe it's still blooming.

I didn't realize how pretty the Crocosmia gets. This would look great in a dried arrangement.

I planted this ivy and some dark purple double wave petunias in this basket I hang on the tree in front of my house.

The ivy is still going crazy!

I think I'll leave it up all winter just to see what happens. I think it was an annual but I'm not sure.
I will be stopping Bloomin' Tuesday the end of the month. My garden has about bloomed out and I'll be busy with a new Granddaughter in November.
Show me what you've got bloomin' this week. Add your name and permalink to your blog and add a link to this post. Thanks for sharing!

Love the new fall photo header. I'm afraid there is nothing left blooming in ours, but here is our 'around the yard' post anyway!

So glad you too have some blooms hanging on! I'm just not ready for everything to stop bloom yet..but I know it's just around the corner.

Wow, Jean! You still have some beauty left in your gardens. Mine are pretty much ka-put! There's a few blooms here and there, but nothing worth posting. Thanks for sharing your last few beauties!

Can't for next spring when we can all start sharing our gardens again.

Hi Jean,
Isn't it amazing how dianthus and other flowers will take the cold, and those sedums will root and bloom like that?

I love crocosmia, but it doesn't survive most of our winters.
