Awesome Autumn Asters

Asters are always worth the wait for me. They may not start blooming until the fear of first frost arrises, but when they do- the color is so welcome.
Here are some pictures of the asters blooming in my garden today.


Welcome Autumn!

For the Love of Nasturiums

It never fails. I never regret planting a ton of nasturium seeds in the spring. Right about now, when most of the perennials have pooped out, these babies are at their top performance. And something about those cooler days at the end of summer makes them grow even quicker. The leaves look like little lotus leaves blowing in the wind. These beauties are by my side walkway, spilling just perfectly onto the cement. The variety is likely peach melba, although I plant a dozen varieties of seeds each spring, and often lose track.
