The tuberous begonias have done well all summer, I will certainly bring more of these into my garden next year.
The Volcano Phlox Pink with White Eye is blooming even after a traumatic hot summer planting.
This petunia has done nothing all summer, I have even forgotten its name, but now it is making a last hurrah!
The Italian parsley will hold up until November. It takes a really hard frost to take parsley out.
Andrea orange mum and unnamed yellow cultivar
Unnamed yellow cultivar (I know I said I wasn't going to buy so many mums but I couldn't resist)
The pansies are beginning to fill out with the cabbages and red swiss chard.
Bright Lights Swiss Chard (the lights are the stems not the leaf)
Plumbago under the Arnie's Choice daylilies (this experiment worked in regard to having something that is growing under the daylilies after they are cut down in July)
Let's Dance is a new lace cap hydrangea that has suffered this summer with the heat. It is now putting forth many new buds. We'll see you next year!
The back border will soon be gone with the first frost. Goodbye!
I am concerned about saying hello to anything in the next few months. It has been so intensive during the spring and summer months, we need to figure out our discussions for those cold winter days!
I like Larry Conrad's idea about developing a forum for discussing what worked for us and what didn't and maybe coming up with some ideas for a better 2011.
