Hope everyone has been enjoying the cooler weather. I am every much enjoying autumn with its’ cool mornings, sunrises and sunsets full of bright colors. Also enjoying what the cooler weather is doing to the flowers. Flowers are appearing much more rich in color. Below are pictures from the garden.
The Dendranthemum is in full bloom now – brings lots of color for this time of the year. Love it!
As always the African Blue Basil is doing great. It is a good annual to have in the garden, great arrangement filler, bees love it, tastes great and the list goes on as to why this is a great plant to have.
My Raydon’s Favorite is in full bloom. Not as showy as it was last year but it is because I heavily divided due to its’ large nature and I needed more room for more plants 🙂
My Honorine Jobert Anemone is still blooming where as my others have finished by now.
Turf is still looking rough but I have big plans, so hopefully next year I will not have to look at it. 🙂

All my Hardy Cyclamen have sent out their foliage. I cannot wait for them to start seeding an spreading out.
With the cooler weather the Clematis is reblooming.
Café au Lait again but now notice the color change. It is now appearing more like the color everyone associates with it, more like a cream.
My Gerrie Hoek Dahlia is a much more vibrant pink than before when the months were so hot.
The garden has not suffered a frost yet and I am hoping for another week frost free but we will see how long it lasts.
What are some of your favorite things about autumn?
