Another year of Bloom Day posts comes to an end, but not without some late season drama! From deep purples and autumn oranges to muted pinks and a Blood Moon, this might be my favorite month of all. What’s blooming where you are?

A mum that looks like a pink daisy (such a nice fall surprise!)
A Japanese anemone, still hanging in there

A few cheerful white cosmos keep on going; the purple ones have gone by.
One last hollyhock near that crazy grass that has completely taken over the corner by the fence.
My first attempt at dahlias, with a pot of alyssum (?), petunia, and lantana. I guess I’d better dig them up soon . . .
I planted coleus as a stop-gap measure in this new bed; I like it so much, I think I’ll do it again next year.

The larch (and balsam fir) I started from Maine seeds.
The beautiful colors of the red currant leaves. Yummy jam now in the freezer!
