Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: October 2015

Today is Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for October, with thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for creating this meme. The crape myrtles are finished, but there are buds galore on the camellias, which should be plentiful for next month’s offering. There is still a lot going on in the garden, and I am delighted to share:


Pink Muhly Grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris)


Dahlia ‘Kordessa’

    Just love love love that Pink Muhly Grass – esp with the Autumn light – I have to get one next year. Dahlia is pretty too!


  3. Looks like summer, but I think that’s about to change. Our forcast for Sunday night is 38 degrees and Monday night is 36. We might get frost!

    Stunning! You have so many wonderful flowers in your garden. I think we are all trying to extend the season and there are so many plants that can cope with lower sunlight and temperatures. Love your Muhly grass, it isn’t hardy here, but then If I had mine in a pot, it could come inside couldn’t it?!”

    So many lovelies! I have a Pink Muhle grass in a planter. It’s alive, but not doing much. It is my eternal struggle with finding enough sun in my shady yard. Going through major editing right now, to make space for new things. Wish me luck – that one is definitely worth finding a spot for…
