Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day! October 2014

Happy Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day!

My blogging time is scarce these days but I’ve been pushing to get a Wordless Wednesday post out since their quick and easy and keep me in the game. I really love GBBD and always feel inspired to try to post something, even if it looks like the exact same post from the year before. I’m planting some bulbs this month and some new perennials too, with the hope that we’ll have some fresh, new things happening here next year. I’m already excited for 2015 and as I do every year, I’m having some difficulty saying goodbye  to this year’s garden.  I should really do a proper garden update but here are some snapshots of what’s blooming today.IMG_7413Looking down, there’s lots of orange, quite a bit of green and some not yet dealt with veggies that need to be removed. IMG_7416The lemon zest petunias are still blooming, just a little, but this was a long run for petunias in my book!IMG_7412We have lavender blossoms that still smell beautiful.
IMG_7410Giant zinnias, actually they weren’t so giant, but that’s okay.IMG_7407The candy cane zinnias kind of grew on me..IMG_7405We have garden mums scattered here and there.
IMG_7403I like this pretty daisy like variety of chrysanthemum.
IMG_7401The last roses of summer…IMG_7392These are giant marigolds, grown from seed.IMG_7391IMG_7393They deterred bugs and added a lot of cheer.IMG_7386I’m excited about this stevia flower that’s about to bloom. Stevia is an herb with very sweet leaves that make a nice alternative to sugar in teas and things.  I’d like to add more of these less common herbs where I have space.IMG_7424The foliage hasn’t quite peaked here in Salem but it’s going to be beautiful in a few days!

  1. I loved all the gold in your garden. I do have some marigolds still blooming in the Potager. I am so glad for last night’s – and today’s rain. It might help things keep going for a while.

  2. Lots of variety! I have a few zinnia hanging on and beautiful morning glories! Cleaned out most of one bed on Saturday, and picked both green tomatoes and peppers because I just don’t think they will ripen on the vines. I’m sad also and trying to enjoy what color is left before the months of gray. Thanks for sharing!
