Here's my oldest son sitting beside Heirloom rose.
Hot Cocoa roses is still making a great show with several blooms. I notice they smell better this time of year, perhaps b/c of the cooler weather?
Heirloom rose up close:
Who knew that Joe Pye Weed "Chocolate" turned this lovely mocha-chartruese color in the fall? I don't remember this in the past... and I love it. I have to move this closer to the front of the border nest year, the asters beside it are covering it too much, and i think it'll be great next some other things...
The gateway to the veggie bed, where I still have some things growing (lettuce, radishes, carrots, peas, some herbs, and last week we had fresh-from-the-garden tomatos in our tacos!)
Like these carrots for example:
The back border, featuring mums, marigolds, and cosmos.
And, a last Double Delight Rose
Happy gardening everyone!
