Garden Bloggers Bloom day-Oct.

i just recently came across Garden Blogger's Bloom day from a link posted at the Almo farms blog. It's easy to participate. Just post on your blog about what is blooming in your garden on the 15th of the month and then leave a link in the ‘Mr. Linky’ widget, and comment to give us a hint as to what we might in your garden in mid-October. i was a little late in posting, but these photos are of things that were blooming on the 15th, in fact they were all still blooming yesterday before last night heavy frost.

Lots of Cosmos. i have these blooming in white, pink and dark pink. of my favorites. i just posted pictures of many of my blooming nasturtium, i have them in all ranges from pale yellow to deep red. You can view more photos of them here.

i still have a few black-eyed Susan blooming here and there, and morning glories.

Mums of course.

i have a lavender still in bloom, which i find odd. Most of my lavender finished blooming in July.

Purple beans.

One lonely little eggplant flower. My eggplant did absolutely nothing this year, and then decided to bloom a few days before the first frost.

Sweet potatoes. These were all dug just a few days ago, but they were still blooming on the 15th.

Kumbocha squash blossom.

Patty Pan squash flower, not yet opened.

Sweet peppers getting a very late start. Many of my peppers plants just this month decided to flower and start producing.

And yes...tomatoes. i had so many late tomatoes. Yesterday, the plants were blooming and loaded with green tomatoes. Last night when i heard about the coming frost, i went out in the dark, and picked all the green tomatoes.

Lastly, i found this one sweet little daisy next to my mailbox. Daisies are one of my favorite flowers. i love their simplicity and they always make me think of the warmth of spring and summer.

"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."
