These are only two out of our 9 trees and they still have plenty of leaves for us to deal with.
I pulled out the last of the marigolds, I love those flowers they last for months. I left in some of the zinnias and the vinca. One of the reasons I left the zinnias is that there was a huge bumblebee enjoying them and I wasn't going to interrupt him.
On my patio my ever blooming hydrangea is still blooming. I should have taken this picture before I trimmed it, it had about 6 other blooms that were fading. It's in a pot out in the open so I think I'd better move it next to the house soon.
I also have a oak barrel full of these orange flowers that have bloomed all summer. I'm not sure what they are. I've planted them before and I love them. I guess when I buy them next year I should pay attention to their name.
I'm off to our wonderful nursery in Oakhust to get pansies so I'll have some color to look at this winter.
