September Flower Garden Tour

I'm sharing some photos of my
 September Flower Garden
It's sad to see Summer going.
Shorter days with more hours of darkness.

My two favorite flowerpot plants, this year, 
 the trailing Geranium below
 and Marigolds.
I've been away a lot this summer
and thanks to my brother for watering them.

This Tamarisk bush really grew tall this year.

Helenium flowers are so pretty.

I took some close-ups


Two fishing floats, beach finds.
hanging under a tree.
I'm hoping to find an orange one,
to complete my collection.

Weeping Willow Tree,
with orange Daylily plant,
that never flowers.
(I don't know why)
Maybe the deer eat the flowers.

I have a few pumpkins growing in my garden.
I didn't plant them. 
They reseeded from last year.

Pumpkin Flowers.

Blackberry bushes grow so tall.
Blackberries grow better in a more temperate climate,
 such as Western Canada, where they can be invasive.
They are slow to ripen here and a lot of them don't ripen.
However, I enjoy what I have.

I transplanted some 
Gooseneck Loosestrike
between trees.
It's invasive and will spread,
....less grass to cut.

My transparent apples are  smaller this year 
because of lack of rain.

Pink Poppies

Varigated leaf, Coreopsis 


Above the plant is a long stock with green berries.

A close up of the
Shieldleaf  flower that dries to berries,
 for birds to eat.

White Phlox
So pure and elegant

Black-eyed Susans

Coneflower ~ Echinacea 

Rowan Tree or Mountain Ash
with berries. 

Rowan berries, food for the birds.

Russian Olive Tree
Pretty silver leaves

~ Jewelweed ~
Bees love this little orchid looking plant.
It produces a lot of seed and will grow anywhere.
It's an annual plant that reseeds itself.
If you hold a seed tightly in the palm 
of your hand, it will explode.

 The juice of the leaves and stems
 is a traditional Native American 
remedy for skin rashes,
 including poison ivy.


A garden path.
With some sea bricks,
I gathered from my walks on the beach.
Also Seabiscuit is comfortable at home, in the garden.

Thanks for your visit xo.
I hope you enjoyed my little garden tour.
