Here are more photos of this weekend's blooms.
This is by far the best photo I have ever taken of spiderwort. Usually they come out looking very flat. This one is perfect (if I do say so myself!). About a month ago, I cut most of the spiderwort back, and now they are blooming again.
This is the wild coneflower that's been blooming all summer. This is a workhorse!!
The mountain bluet is blooming again also. I love these spidery blue blooms.
I have a snakeroot plant that has been moved many, many times. For the last few years, it hasn't been very happy and hasn't bloomed. So last fall, I moved it to yet another home. When I dug up the plant, it split into 3 plants. They all look healthy, but they are just now sending up these little flower stalks. I think they're the same variety as the ones I showed blooming a couple months ago - big, beautiful flower spikes. I'll give these another year here - hopefully, they'll bloom earlier and better next year. (If not, I do have a couple more places to try :) !)
Here's one of my dark snakeroot - I believe this one is "Brunette." It's just starting to bloom. Again, not terribly impressive. This one may not be getting as much moisture as it wants - it's right next to the river birch clump. Gosh, I hate to move these things all the time.
The physostegia - or obedient plant. This is a fun little plant that should keep increasing in number every year.
Turtlehead. Not a great photo - but look at all those blooms! I love these plants.
I think this is the last veronica in the garden still blooming.
Brown-eyed Susans are still going strong.
A tuberous begonia. These finally started blooming last week - way too long to wait for container plants!! I had some red and some yellow that did quite well this year, but the rest were only so-so. I may decide to not do these next year...
The white "David" phlox is still looking very pretty. Some of the other phlox have blooms, but they're coming to the end.
The Japanese anemone are still looking good.
