The flowers and plants are in their seasonal transition.
The impatiens that were planted Mother’s Day weekend are now on their final journey. They held up remarkably well through this summer’s drought, and are now beginning to lose their fullness as the cooler weather creeps in.
The mums are filling out nicely, and the transfer from bright reds, pinks, salmon and white to burgundy and yellow has been in progress for several weeks. I hate to see the impatiens depart as they are my favorites.
Next Spring and Summer, I look forward to planting more impatiens, and enjoying my hostas, and Mary Todd daylilies that were remarkable for a first season’s planting.
