In the meantime, a chill has fallen upon the Wilmington area. This a.m. I went outside to take these pictures of the 'late bloomers' in our yard it was COLD!
I don't know this vine's name but I buy it every year and it covers the fence beautifully.
A late blooming cone flower! There are 2 more buds waiting to bloom,
but they might not make it through this chilly spell.
The impatiens are being very patient with our weather.
The lighter colored impatiens were rogue plants that just came up from last year's seed.
These impatiens get along very well with the rosemary, which will serve us well through the winter.
One of the last 'roses of summer'!
Ah, the beautiful burgundy colors of the spent hydrangea.
My mother called these little violas 'johnny jump-ups'. They will brighten our fence all winter long.
