10 points to Gryffindor for the first person who recognizes my play on words in the blog title and where it came from...
I posted all sorts of pictures in the spring of the flowers growing around my house, but there are actually quite a few things still blooming now that we are moving into fall. For instance:
|Sunflowers in the garden. I planted them for the birds, who have already started working on them.|
|Phllox and jewel weed. It really is a weed, but the hummingbirds love the little orange blossoms, so I don't pull it out.|
|More phlox. This was here when I moved in, and it shows up in bits and pieces.|
|Black-eyes Susans in front of the house. I planted a seed mix last year and this was what I got. Not exactly the mix of flowers I was expecting, but pretty.|
|The field next to my house, full of Queen Anne's lace, lots of yellow goldenrod, and some wild purple things I can't identify...|
|Anyone know what those purple flowers are?|
|Milkweed, which is the main food of the monarch butterfly|
|And lurking amid it all...the devil itself--RAGWEED!|
Still, soon enough the snow will be covering it all and I will be longing for the flowers that bloom in the fall. All except one...
Tune in tomorrow, because there is another giveaway coming up!
