Today's Flowers - #112!

It's #112 for Today's Flowers! That's more than two years of fun for everyone so once again, I owe a big thank you to the team that makes this possible!
I was out yesterday afternoon avoiding work in the house and noticed my tansy was showing a second set of flowers. This plant is one that is considered a weed here in Colorado and can't be purchased at a garden center. The flowers can be dried and used in fall crafts.
The alysum smells so sweet and looks better now that it has cooled off a bit. My mom has some double petunias so I decided to try one this year. Her's always look so much better, but then I remembered that she plants three or four pots in one planter!
The Autumn Joy continues to turn darker.
Both pictures were taken Saturday afternoon, just at different ends of the "hedge" on the side of the garage.
Daytime temperatures will reach the mid 80's this week, so I'm thinking it may be another week or two until Indian Summer arrives.

Gorgeous autumn colors!

I have Sedum Autumn Joy flowering in my garden at the moment. I really like it, and so do the bees and butterflies. It's a great border filler, and adds so much colour to the garden at this time of year too :)

I'm loving this weather - just like your beautiful yard. We need that first frost; then it will be my favorite time - Indian Summer. Have a great week. Sally

I always love looking at your flowers...they're so pretty. That tansy should not be considered a weed...it's beautiful! :)
Have a great day!
