September blooming


The September blooming continues summer. 

The days are shorter, nights are colder, and the night temperature dropped to +9 C. 
But many of my garden flowers are not afraid of cold nights, heated in the afternoon sun or stand in heavy rain. 
In May I sowed the seeds of Gaylardia  and now in September,  the young flowers are blooming, under the rare sun.
Begonias make me happy.
They grew up in a container and beautifully bloom in autumn.
The crown anemones also continue to blossom.

At the end of the month I'll dig their bulbs and they will be dried to save them until spring.

Hydrangea Grandiflora, floribunda "Anadia", roses  Pink Grottendorst continue to bloom and I wonder how they can bear such cold nights, enjoying the sun in the afternoon.
Golden and red trees
Nod to the soft breeze,
As it whispers, "Winter is near;"
And the brown nuts fall
At the wind's loud call,
For this is the Fall of the year.

Good-by, sweet flowers!
Through bright Summer hours
You have filled our hearts with cheer 
We shall miss you so,
And yet you must go,
For this is the Fall of the year.

 Now the days grow cold,
As the year grows old,
And the meadows are brown and   sere;   
Brave robin redbreast
Has gone from his nest,
                                                                                                       For this is the Fall of the year.

  1. Hi Nadezda! Such beautiful flowers and pictures once again. You still have so many blooming flowers. I have already cut down many perennials and summerflowers in our garden.

  2. Aloha, Nadezda -

    I really enjoyed my little sneak over here ... fell especially in love with the white anemone and your rose: ♥ (my "Harlow Carr" starts to bloom a third time within this year ... so powerful!)

    Have a warm & sunny weekend,
    Petra

    1. Petra, the David Austin rose "Harlow Carr" is beautiful, I love it. I had some Austin roses before. Unfortunately they aren't hardy to our winter. These year anemones surprised me by their flowering. Thank you!

  3. Nadezda girl I absolutely love your late blooming flowers .. that spotted "tiger" ? lily is so pretty and all the anemones are so beautiful ! .. Yes the days are shorter and I would hope they get cooler a lot faster .. I have a lot to do in my garden 9lots of daff bulbs to plant out front !)
    I love Autumn .. but with this hot dry summer I am not sure how many trees can produce the beautiful coloured leaves I so love.
    Your blooms were wonderful !!

    1. Joy, it's so pity that many trees suffered from heat, I hope Canadian autumn will be bright yellow-red. You planned a lot of work for this nice season. Thank you!

  4. I'm amazed at how many blooms you still have in your garden, Nadezda. I especially like the gaylardia; we tend to call it "blanket flower" here. Enjoy the rest of the growing season!

    1. Karen, I didn't expect that Gaylardia will bloom this season, so it's flowering. I remember yours on your blog, it hadn't the right color. Than you!

    1. Hilary, about "the green thumb" what to say?:)) I will see in the spring, how the plants bear the winter. Thank you!

  8. Nadezda, you still have such beautiful colours in your garden! I don't have any anemones, but after seeing your photos and those stunning colours, I will look them up in my catalogue. It is also getting colder where I live and in my mind I am already planning next year's garden :)

    1. First I planted anemones 2 years ago, in October, as was written on the pack. And the next spring none of them grew up. Now I plant the anemones in April, they bloom till cold weather and dig them out in Fall. I store the roots(bulbs) in cool place. Thank you, Rosemary!

    2. Thanks for the information, I think I will follow your advice Nadezda since we have a similar climate. What zone is your garden?

      Delete
    3. My garden is in the zone 5a, up to -28 C. It's too cold for crown anemones, so I store their bulbs.

  11. Hi Nadezda. Oh my! I am in love with your anemones. Especially the white and blue one. Just gorgeous. I tried the bulbs once but did not have very good luck with them. I will certainly have to try them again. Your garden is still blooming beautifully.

  24. Nadezdo,
    I am glad that you were in Munich.
    After all, it's normal to worry if someone does not write long posts, comments ...
    I'm worried that he is not ill ...
    We are like one big family.
    I kiss you hard and very hot!

  25. When I lived in New York near the Canadian border, I grew the same type of anemones in my garden. :o) They are so pretty! It's too warm for them here in Virginia. I love your roses. I love their burst of flowers as the weather cools down.
