Oranges, reds and yellows, but it has nothing to do with pumpkins, so I voted other!!!

Its African Marigolds, and Dahlias mainly with the odd gladioli and rose causing the colour. The secondary colour is green from grass and foliage and there is the odd dash of purple and blue from buddlea, verbena, scabiosa and Morning Glory.

I still have a lot of color - the calendulas, cosmos and annual dahlias are still in bloom along with chrysnathemums, a couple of daisies, native asters, osteospermums, pineapple sage, Salvia patens, even the morning glories. This will of course all end with the first hard freeze, but so far we've only had light frosts and the forecasts looks good for another week.

forgot the roses!

I voted other as the leaves haven't started turning (although it is way too dry) but I have noticed the bloom colors seem to cycle and lately both wildflowers and my "tame" flowers are blooming in whites and yellows.

Very unusual, no frost yet! So everything is still in full bloom. Trees are glorious colors because they are turning naturally instead of being froze. Field crops are looking great. Corn fields are a blend of green & brown. Alfalfa fields are bright green from recent rains.
I even picked a bouquet of Gladiolus yesterday. Last year at this time they were all dug & in the greenhouse drying.

I had to vote "other" because there seems to be always something blooming down our way. I still have red and pink hibiscus blooming, pink knock out roses, yellow alamanda, red, lilac and pink pentas, white tuberroses, four o'clocks of different colors and vinca minor/periwinkle (which are weeds down here and sprout up everywhere.) Last week I even found two flowers on one of the hibiscus bushes!

We are having an early fall, the Maple tree in the front yard has begun shedding it's leaves, the eastern red bud and crape myrtle's also. The hickory's haven't starting losing leaves yet but by the end of November or early December they will probably be bare also.

There are a lot of Golden Rain trees around the area right now with beautiful colors, some with the pinkish colored seed pods and some that have the beautiful yellow flowers.

I would trade all of these blooming flowers for some of that beautiful fall scenery some of y'all get!

There's a hint of yellow in the leaves and grass, but not because of fall's approach. Everything is so drought-stressed around here that our leaves will probably shed before they really get the chance to be pretty from cooler weather. However, the ditches and fields are full of goldenrod and varieties of late summer sunflowers, some white asters, and some wild ageratum. Pretty, but not spectacular.

We have few trees that are reliable "color changers" since we have a lot of pines and live oaks and other oaks. The Crape Myrtles are slowly changing color and will soon drop their leaves but we have the beautiful bark on them. Until we have a frost we will have our usual flowers and bushes, etc. I am in the midst of planting allyssum (sp?), dianthus, Petunias, lobelia, and some other stuff that I have forgotten names of . I restrained myself when I went to the nursery because I knew it would be difficult to get these in the ground w/out help. I like seeds best because I can scratch the ground, scatter the seeds then toss on a handfuls of potting soil (if necessary) and tamp down w/the hoe. No more really colorful beds for me now that I am so blasted old!

Yellow leaves on the trees, mums, and zinnas, Purple on zinnas, some other flowers, cannas and a bush, orange from the leaves, white from pentas and the dust from the gravel road, red from cannas, green from foilage, grass and leaves that haven't turned yet and brown from the seedheads of my coneflowers and all the other wildflowers in the pasture, plus the bark and limbs of the trees that are slowly being more exposed everyday.

Still lots of green but since we have hard hard frost the past 2-3 nights a lot of the green is frosted! I still have some blooms - Autumn Joy sedum and a couple of fall blooming asters still looking OK. - globe thistles still in bloom and the Euphorbia and Peony foliage stilllooking nice. But not for long Im sure! We often have a killing frost early in Sept. so it has been a nice treat this year to get into mid October without one.Snow in the mountains but nothing in the city yet.

I had to vote other because there really isn't a main color in my yard. I have roses so there is yellow, red, orange, white and pink. There's still plenty of purple salvia and asters. Soft pink mums and pink salvia. Yellow mums and rudbeckia. Maroon mums and dark red snapdragons. Bright red holly berries.

Too many colors to narrow it down to just one main color. Next month will be a different story though.

Okra still blossoming every day, though the pods are maturing in odd shapes -- still taste the same. I have a few bell peppers that are still growing, but the jalapenos are over.

It is still green here. Besides most of my bushes and shrubs are evergreens. I do have splashes of flowers here and there, and a lot of brown gravel, but no turning trees. And it is supposed to get down to 23 tonight with rain and snow. I suspect we will have no leaves exept on the evergreens after tonight and tomorrow. Downtown there is quite a bit of red and yellow, but not in my yard.

most of the leaves that were starting to turn last month got blown off by ohio's first "hurricane". the winds got up to 78mph in columbus, but all the trees that faired well are now in full color. my 70 Foot tall cotton woods have no leaves b/c of the storm:( many of the beautiful green ash trees were strewn about the streets, my banana tree was ripped to shreds, and all the leaves were VERY wind burned:( oh well. other than that, i voted green, because thats the primary color in the garden. but other places the leaves are beautiful.

Green. Those hardy plants that survived 2 months on 110 degree heat are beginning to wake up. Many visits to the nursery where we can purchase 'tunias, snaps, mums etc... add lots of other color. We need to 'make hay' when we can. Overseeded a small lawn with winter rye for even more green. It can be so severe here. We tend to freeze in Dec/Jan and have to start all over for a short spring. Its all good.

Purple - bergina, asters galore, herbs galore, burning bush has started to turn. Yellows - rudbeckia, 2 feet of leaves on the ground. White - phlox. Black - frozen dahlias LOL (actually I dug them all up this weekend). Lots of green too although with our night time temps. soon it will be brown sigh.

I voted orange because it's my favorite color and thus I have lots of dahlias in various shades of orange, as well as mums, zinnias,Japanese Maples, still some marigolds, and lots of pumpkins. Then I went to the poll-results and was surprised to see how dominant the color green was in over half the respondents' gardens. Caused me to look around and see that in fact green is still the main color of my garden, too--no frost as yet--with lawns, pines and oaks and a mimosa tree, evergreen shrubs, hostas, ferns, hydrangeas. It's just that the orange colors have so much "punch" against the different greens. Fooled me.

I really don't mind the first few snowfalls. There's just something cozy about them. It's when the snow continues for months and months and months that it starts to get old. That really hasn't been a problem for the last several years though. It's been so very dry here that it couldn't even snow. I'm hoping for lots of snow this winter so we can end the dry cycle and get rain next spring and summer. It's time.

We actually do still have quite a bit of green as well.

Hurrican Ike did a number on our gardens here but after staking the tall plants back upright and clearing away the debris from the rest, it is beginning to look normal again. Still blooming are pink and yellow brugmansias, mealy blue sage, butterfly weed (I have the orange and the yellow), several varieties of coleus, 3 colors of begonia, 2 colors of dianthus, plumbago, tecoma, lantana, confederate rose hibiscus, many colors of impatiens, yellow daisy, zinnias pink and orange, vinca, firecracker fern,(russelia), hyacinth bean vine, mexican flame vine and purple heart. I have another flower which I am unable to identify. It grows 3 ft tall here covered with blue-bell type flowers. I have a median between my neighbor's yard and mine that is a sea of these beautiful plants. They are extremely prolific by making zillions of seeds. When I water, I can hear the seed pods popping open and if I stand close enough, they sting my legs when the seeds are shot out of the pod. I also have a pink variety of this plant and I have seen a white variety in other gardens. Anyone know what it is?

Brown - ground is carpeted with dead leaves and those remaining on most of the trees are also brown, too many Oak trees around here for my liking. My dahlias are nothing but black stems and leaves. Have to look CountryGarden's area up to see where in the State hasn't been hit by a freeze yet, must be in the southern portion.

I hear you Surreybrit. My beluved dahlias are now all snug or I guess I should say chilling out in storage. Jack lives here now. Its amazing how many of the fall bloomers spit in his eye though. HA! Take that Jack!

I had to say "other" as I still have the same flowers as I've had all summer. We still have temps in the 90's in the afternoons...and the plants are doing even better now that we don't have 100+ temps!

Here are the impatiens...fighting for space with the "blooming" grasses...lovin' this "cooler" weather here in Austin...

I voted green because its spring here, seedling time! But there are some other lovely colours to be seen as well.

Had to say green, though there is a touch of unwatered lawn that makes things a bit more brown :(. I do have some brilliant Strelizias blooming right now, and the Lime tree has some fragrant white flowers on it, too.

Good old Southern California climate keeps things pretty much the same all the time, at least where I live. Some may find it boring, but the fun is in choosing whether you want spring or summer blooms, as most things bloom year round. November to March is Spring, April to October is Summer! Sure we get the odd freeze - but that just keeps us humble!;)

Your palms have really taken off this year. I saw the pics of you developing your collection, and it is a very impressive one. Kudos, dude!

I voted other since so many of the choices could go either way. I'm having 80* day weather and 60* night time temps. My grass is green but the bahia is not putting up their forked seed heads thank goodness. The mums are blooming yellows, whites, and reds. There are many blues in the garden with West Texas Mist flower in bloom. Just a rainbow of colors right now. Thanks to a mum coop I was in. My over extended coop budget at least is paying dividends in bloom right now. The house is decorated in autumn colors with a jack-o-lantern burning on the fireplace hearth, fall leaves as garland on the mantel and the table is all ready for Thanksgiving.

Mostly green for me with a smattering of fall bloomers. Garden mums are really popping today as are the ornamental grasses and my big 'Miss Huff' lantana. Indigo Spires and Vict. Blue sages are great right now too in their deep indigo blue. The biggest bestest color though is the green of the lawn. After several years of drought, the Sept rains have really got it growing.

Our frost date is still a few weeks away so this is the last hurrah (cept for pansies which are in flats on my driveway...for now).

Still green. Mostly iris fans and a tad of lawn... Couple of zinnea blooming and some morning glories...a hazy annual brass gives it a restful look... still no hard frost on our side of the hill - and of course the trees in the background are doing their autumn splendor dance!
