Thank you, that was slow loading with all the pictures. Yesterday I noticed the hummers were going after my Larkspurs. They're an annual that Ii planted for the first time this summer. Vey slow growers but they finally bloomed, I never did transplant them from the tomato tub. Marigold with lettuce. Double impatiens, I hope this will winter over in Fl.

I could use some help on identifying Ajuga. I have three that I know of: Bronze Beauty, Chocolate Chip (no picture) and Burgundy Glow. All of a sudden I have this one that I can't identify. Any suggestions? The middle picture is the one in question. Thanks. It flowered a dark cobalt blue.

Thanks for the hints on Carpet Bugle. I've checked them all. There is no variegation of foliage so I have eliminated most that have two or more colors. Still searching. Maybe one of the others is reverting back to an original parent of it's background? It's very healthy and a nice contrast to the others. The flowers were really vibrant. I'm sorry my pictures weren't good and I discarded them. Better luck next time.

All the blooms look great! My echies were "dusty" looking this year...so were my friend's...must be a fungus...the lilies I planted in June are now blooming! I was hoping to have some to enter in the fair on Thursday, but don't know if they'll hold...purple salvia the hummers love, dwarf canna...

Cool Cyclamen, never grew one of them.

I love that cleome, stays small and great for containers, wish it made seeds. I may try to overwinter it, not sure if it will just die off since it's supposed to be an annual.

Name correction on the cleome it is "Senorita Rosalita"

Nice array, Allison...I can't believe you still have a foxglove blooming! And a Yorkie! There was a hummer in this photo...honest...until I snapped the picture! He/she is too spooky, don't know how you get those amazing shots, Allison!

The squirrels have been at it again, digging up my newly planted siberians, they must have done it a couple of days ago and I missed it on my daily walk through. I believe a product from Michigan called (migonite) or something like that was mentioned in one of these threads. If I remember correctly it was a product made from their treated waste . Any help would be appreciated.

These are some my fall favorites as of two days ago. Camelia Winter's Joy is thriving so far, and now covered with buds. Mango Mist hibiscus is my reliable bloomer all year. The giant elephant ears--are. Little lime hydrangea has wonderful deep pink edging as it gets colder. And last is a side view of my hill with small headed sunflowers, and a caladium pot with black willow.

I just came home from some lengthy baby sitting and recovering from surgery (a friend) help. The end of season pics here are beautiful. We are really nearing the end of bloom time here. Took a few pics in the rain to help me remember what bloomed this time of year and where they're located since I didn't put many markers in.

The clems were a nice surprise. The roses keep going until the end. The Pink Turtle Head Chelone are finally beginning to bloom. They were started from seed.

This one is planted in a garden that gets full afternoon sun, Allison. It has taller plants on either side of it, but it still gets direct sunlight. I think the weeds that I didn't get to pull protected it somewhat. I just put 3 more in very dense shade near my front porch. They probably are too young to bloom this year.

Beautiful environment. We're getting ready to start short hikes with the youngest grandchildren. Lots of info here on safety on the Appalachian Trail. We live near Delaware Water Gap. The "Church on the Mountain" here feeds hikers with food brought in by the locals. They LOVE lasagna.

thanks folks - here are a few more hiking shots and once in a while i even talk my wife into coming - that would be her in photo 3 not wanting her picture taken.

i have decided to remove many of the bes here and replace with short asters that need to be split once they are done blooming to provide more fall color.
