I've found that each bulb doesn't necessarily bloom every year, specially if it's putting out a new bulblets on the side.m

I guess I need to get some other plants blooming other than my many Chili Peppers!

It time here for nearly everything to be done with, and frankly, I'm kind of glad. Glad the seasons winding down. Now I'm waiting for the new seed catalogues and dreaming of next year…..
I still have a lot of cuttings todo and potting up mother of thousand babies, plus bring all the tropicals inside. Should have all that done before Halloween.

Here the roses are coming back to life. Their colors are often richest in the fall.

One of my rose looks great. It's put out a lot of new canes. It's a climbing rose, I understand it's normal for it to put out new canes in the fall. Care for climbers is different, I've found out.

Apparently your roses survived the February freeze! Hurray!

Most of my blooms have been meager this summer but at least some plants survived. Right now the butterfly ginger is offering fragrant blooms as well as the Turks cap which was the one good bloomer all summer.

You know, I didn't cover my roses during the big freeze and they were fine. I did cover the in ground ele ears and the hydrangea. I figured I wouldn't get any blooms on the hydrangea but it was the prettiest bloom season it's ever had! Go figure. I love turks cap and I'm very impressed by Peggy's turks caps and all the hummer son them. A must buy for next year.

I had dug up my large Turks cap last summer to make room for another raised bed. I have it in a large mineral tub container so was afraid its' roots had freeze damage. It survived and when the blooms began, the youngest of my cats found the hummers a challenge. I moved the tub to on top of another mineral tub so they were out of her reach. Or so I thought, she then got up on top of the shade house to simulate death from above. I removed the shade cloth so she couldn't walk on it and the hummers were safe. Now I don't want to plant it down on her level. Grrrr... Grumbling

A friend gave me this Lantana years ago. He called it a mini hydrangea. I love this color but most of the plant blooms in a pink yellow. Not sure why...

And the Confederate rose has offered some blooms although they are tattered from lack of rain and the wind.

The coldest morning so far this fall was Friday at 46 degrees. I was surprised to walk out and see this. A late bloom from the dwarf canna.

This hibiscus is a rooted cutting from a rooted cutting I made from mother plant several years ago. The mother plant was from a friend's mom's who passed away in the 90's. The mother plant died in the freeze also but now I can root my friend one.

Beautiful colors for fall blooms. I love the Canna and your Hibiscus is an interesting color. So often they are a louder color. Very pretty and I am so glad you will be able to return a start of it to the one who shared it with you. Lovey dubby

I also love the butterfly in your avatar. What a great shot of it.
