September Blooms

20120910-114438.jpg The evenings are chilly this week, but many flowers are still blooming or just getting ready to pop. Just this weekend, little white blossoms popped out of my chives. Usually I have pink chive blossoms. The delicate white blooms might be a bit too fragile to nosh on.


Many of my zinnias are still going strong. This is my first year growing these gorgeous flowers. I had no idea that they'd last all spring and summer. I hope they make it through the autumn as well!


Mums are just starting to open up in my front garden. This year my red & yellow mums are taking up quite a bit of real estate, but that didn't stop me from adding purple & pink! I just need to be a bit more diligent about pruning them back.


Pansies & Violas round out the flowers blooming away this month. I love the fiery red pansies. To me they are a signal that autumn is just about here, and winter isn't far behind!

What's blooming in your garden right now?
