A handful of Fall blooms that have survived cold nights and fading light
begonia, cone flower, day lily, Montauk daisy
Labor Day, and thoughts of fall… except that it’s near 90deg again today! The long hot summer, dry except for occasional torrents of rain, has not been welcomed by many flowering plants and shrubs. Roses have hated it, and Montauk Daises (our favorite fall flowering shrub) are already brown and dessicated.
But a couple of bloomers have loved the heat! Geraniums are at the peak of their second flowering, and one hibiscus has produced glorious golden blooms all summer! So long may they last!
When it’s too hot to be outdoors, we can enjoy the orchids that are flourishing indoors…

The life guards have gone home, but we’re still going in the water…
