I’m Still Here!

Who doesn’t love a Shirley MacLaine reference?

Yesterday I was traipsing through an area of my garden that has become a bit overgrown and stumbled across a Crocosmia ‘Solfaterre’ still blooming. At that moment, I pictured Shirley MacLaine sitting on top of a piano wearing a red sequin dress! That should give you a little peak into the window of my mind!

With November around the corner, I thought I would take advantage of this last bit of beautiful weather and see what else might be out there to surprise me.

Pretty soon cold temperatures and rainy days will become the norm for several months but for now I’ll enjoy this little bit of summer hanging on by a thread.

What’s still surprising you in your garden?

 

 

One thought on “I’m Still Here!

  1. Because montbretias are so common and prolific here, I have never planted any, so have never grown a yellow one. Perhaps I will someday, just for something different from the common orange. The penstemon look rad!
