Last Bits of Color
Today I wanted to share the last bits of color in my garden. The leaves are just starting to turn which will bring lots of color but these are the last of my flowers. This is my Purple Beauty Berry Bush.
These are fall blooming crocus called Colchicum. I am amazed at how well these did this year because I didn't water the area where they were planted at all during the summer. We had a very dry summer. The fact that they did so well makes me appreciate them even more!
I was pleased to capture this busy bee on my sedum.
And finally, this plant is in my new shade garden along the side of the house. It's a toad lily and is just starting to bloom. I love it's orchid like flowers. This is likely to be the last garden related post till spring, sigh.
