Late summer blooms

Orange Chrysanthemums.

Multicolored pansies are freaking gorgeous...
"Russian Giant" sunflower.  I was never very into sunflowers, but they are so massive and interesting I think I'm hooked.
This one is truly giant...over six feet tall.  Honeybees for scale.
My "Thomas Edison" dinnerplate dahlia finally bloomed!  It's really huge.  I ended up loving dahlias because they are very zero maintenance.  Will be growing more next year.


  1. I love Sunflower and I have a fake one on my windowsill.
    Also, those Orange Chrysantemums are beautiful.

  2. You must have a gorgeous garden. Lovely photos.

  3. Thank you! My garden is amateur-ish and struggling hard against the late summer drought, but there are still some elements that are very beautiful!
