Nothing Specifically September

 Nothing specifically September for Bloom Day.  Roses, as they are ten months of the year, are the stars.  
'Prospero' looks like a Frisbee sailing across the garden.

I was more intrigued by the background for 'Ambridge Rose' than by the rose.

'Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria' looks appropriately September--a sun-scorched and weary survivor.

The latest greatest Hydrangeas bloom on and on, long enough for us to get a little--only a little--tired of them.

This is likely the last of the Dahlias for the year.  I'll cut them all down soon.

 The Drakensberg daisy continues to thrive.

Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender' has finally started to bloom again.  It stopped right after I planted it.  That's okay--I took most of summer off, too.

Lastly, Echeveria 'Black Prince', I suppose this one might be specifically September.

The beautiful crimson of the flowers is apparent in a close up look:

  1. You have some beautiful photos posted today. Nice. Jack

  2. your Echeveria 'Black Prince' is ahead of ours in the Uk, they tend to be Oct - November here.

    1. I looked back (blogs are nice for that) and see it was a September bloomer in '11 and in '09. Nights are just starting to cool off here, I wonder if that's the trigger, or is it the shorter days?

  3. That second photo looks like it should be a painting! That BG is gorgeous and the flower so beautifully delicate. Very very lovely! I should pick up a P. 'Mona Lavender'. They look so great this time of the year. Lovely shots!

    1. Thank you Deanne. I really, really like that Plectranthus.

  4. Speaking about growing tired of long flowerers, I got a case of pink fatigue with my pink Drakensberg gerberas and pulled them out. Now I'm scouring nurseries for the orange/peachy variety. Let me know if you see any out your way. What amazing plants they are.

    1. Roger's had plenty of them on Thursday.
