Japanese Anemones ARE fall.
Just like the ubiquitous Chrysanthemum, but, thankfully not as overused, are these beautiful, delicate, luscious flowers.





These two plants are in a mostly shaded area and are several weeks behind those pink flowers, which is a perfect way to spread out the color in the fall season!


And here is the white, from a year ago, in full bloom:

The season is winding down.
Yes, even here in central North Carolina, there are not many flowers around.
There are lots of chrysanthemums of course,  and the Nandina berries are getting ready to show color, and the zinnias are hanging on.
The Japanese Anemones are delighting in the cooler, wetter weather!
And here are my white ones, once again, in the midday sunlight.
My sweet Violas:

I never DID do a post on them, as they were short-lived…who knows why. They look very happy above, but that was temporary! Each one died within a month. I swear I did NOT over water them. They got full sun. The bowl has drainage.
Well, anyway, the bowl has been perfect for the violas!
I’ve been planting tons of pansies and tall snapdragons the last few days.
That is one of the many reasons I LOVE living here: year round gardening and always something in color. It makes a huge difference […]
