It seems to get dark so early now...we are at less than 13 hours of daylight now. The trees are starting to turn color. Everything is going to start to peter out. Had frost on the roof a few mornings, but it didn't seem to affect the plants. Let's see some of your fall blooms.

Acidanthera (has many other names). I love this; planted a whole bunch up in pots in April and transplanted them all over the place. The fragrance is heavenly.

Thank you Joanne. The first shot is of Morden Blush, then Sharifa Asma (Austin) HT, and finally Barbra Striesand HT. I have three other HT's blooming right now as well, Abe Darby, Chicago Peace and the one below, Opening Night. And yes, they are all fragrant. Yours are lovely as well. Great thread. ^_^

no problem make sure to use a dome and a south facing window as seedling they do not like transplanting so put a few seeds each in three inch pots and keep them in those till you transplant outside and they like it a little on the dry side after the first true leaves come out, but they are worth the work I just so enjoyed them this year, I cut so many to bring inside since they last over two weeks in a vase
