Autumn Flowers Part 2

This is what was blooming in my garden about two weeks ago.  Happy with the color all the color I have had this year and look forward to the next.

Iris

My Autumn Circus Iris happily blooming again.

Camellia

I got a new Camellia this fall and I am curious as to how it does this winter.  I hope very well.  This certain cultivar has the strongest fragrance that I have ever smelt on a Camellia.

Fall bulb 1

A white Crocus ochroleucus  I think, my helpers lost my this tag.  Last year it seemed stronger and not as wimpy looking.  I seem to be not having much luck with the fall blooming Crocus.  Not sure what it is that is lacking for them but I hope to fix this.

Crocus

This beauty I got this fall from Odyssey Bulbs and I am in love!  This little guy ended up sending four other flowers out.  It is Crocus kotschyanus ssp. kotschyanus HKEP. 9317 . I hope that I can keep it happy.

Cambridge Snowdrop

Weather has gotten crummy and not much is left flowering now except for one of my Snowdrops.   This one is Galanthus reginae-olgae ‘Cambridge’.  I have others that have decided not to bloom or do much this fall but this one has certainly made up for where the others are greatly lacking.  I have been having a debate with myself as to if I like late fall blooming Snowdrops more or Spring ones… still undecided. 🙂

Radish frog

Poor guy looks like my general mood towards winter : -) My radish flowers grew around him though which made him look this grumpy and I could not resist taking his photo.

Dahlia tubers

I dug up my Dahlia tubers but I do not think they are going to make it this year again till spring.  They do not seem happy in storage, so it is a good thing I already ordered my favs.  Open for ideas on storing them.

I hope everyone is having a great week.  You will find me dreaming of flowers and sunshine.
