Last Hurrah

The flowers in my garden are starting to peter out. And since I missed last bloom day because I was sick, I wanted to post what is blooming right now before they are all gone.

Morning glory and turks cap:

Chili Pequin and cuphea:

Sternbergia Lutea (yellow autumn crocus):


Rainbow and batface cuphea:

The Firecracker Vine(Spanish Flag vine)is absolutely stunning right now:


Too bad all the hummers are gone for the season, they would have LOVED the firecracker vine. The last hummer left my garden about 2 weeks ago (right on schedule!):

Gulf muhly, mexican mint marigold, russian sage:


Butterfly on Milkweed:

The Lesser Goldfinches have been hanging around eating sunflower seeds:

And here is a pic taken last month, I never got it posted, but it was so pretty I am gonna go ahead and post it up now :)

Butterfly on Pride of Barbados:

Wow, you still have so many flowers! Mine are finished -- last of the Turks Cap, last final push from the roses, Morning Glory decided not to flower this year, Pride of Barbadoes finished weeks ago. Central Texas has lots of microclimates!
