One Last Goodbye


This red sunflower is looking positively weepy :(

The season has come to an end.
Here are some of the very last flowers in my garden.


To steal a line from Cinderella,



"Do I love you because you're beautiful,"



Or are you beautiful because you're the last one?


This is my "beauty" corner because both the clematis and the hollyhock have put out their last blooms at the same time.


Just about to cut down the browned-out section below, when "boing" out pops a flower!


One last elegant goodbye...

  3. Hello Rosemary!
    Lovely flowers. Great colors.

    1. Yes Lucia, it is supposed to be autumn, but some plants are acting as if summer should never end!

  4. Let me join you in a farewell, Rosemary, but not a goodbye to that clematis. Won't you love it when/if its seedpod appears for a final, lingering look?

    1. When I saw the flower buds a few weeks ago, I thought for sure the cold would prevent them from opening but here they are! And you're right, I'll have the seed pods all winter long :)

  5. Hi Rosemary, September was mild, but fall is definitely closing in. We have had a few light frosts here already and a hard frost is probably just days away. The last flowers of the season are always precious!

    1. Hi Jennifer, thanks for stopping by :) We haven't had a frost yet and parts of the garden are still putting up new buds... Tsk, tsk, they should know better than that!
