Today’s Flowers: Fall Garden

rudbeckia with alyssum
Here are a few photos I took of my garden last week. Above is a rudbeckia, a black-eyed susan, peeking out from behind white alyssum.

azalea and andromeda shrubs
Pretty much all my annuals have now faded or died. In the spring I’ll photograph the azaleas, here shown with red leaves, that are under the andromeda shrub.

rose in November
A lonely pink rose in my backyard: sometimes we get roses on a warm winter day. But this past week brought frost each night; yesterday felt like January. Still no signficant snow, however.

Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for this lovely and lively meme.

david mcmahon says

My favourite is that first shot!

A Living Nadneyda says

Love the azalea leaves! I purposely planted my garden with lots of bushes and tall grasses around the edges, so they would always be a variety of shades and textures throughout the year, long after the flowers are gone.

Maria says

Beautiful shots from your wonderful garden! I love the first picture best, the yellow petals look like a girl's hair :)

Gemma says

Delightful shots of an almost winter garden! I even love the parade of leaf tones! Quite magical!

Great shots and they're so nice and clear. I like asylum. Made the mistake though of putting some where the water runs down a slope into my grass and now my grass keeps sprouting the stuff.

Cathy says

I'm looking forward to spring when I can see your azaleas in bloom!

Mckay K says

Leora your garden is so pretty. I loved walking through it with you. Thanks.

Dina says

Wow, so much color! Ta'anoog!
Crocus, yes, that's it. Thanks for confirming what I suspected my little flower was. I'm not good at flower names, in either language.
Shalom shalom.

Thank you for your comment and letting me know something about your grandmother`s history.
We were cruising on the Black Sea last May and we spent one day also in Odessa.
I have many photos also from there, but not in my blog, even I put many photos from our journey to my blogspot blog last May.
If you have extra time, you could see those photos in this address:

I will find out my Odessa photos and I can put them to my other blog. I let you know then.
Odessa has been a wonderful, international town before WW II, we could see some beautiful houses there and quite excellent Opera house, which has been very famous in Europe and still is working
Nice Sunday evening to you, we had today snowstorm and still a wind is strong. Nothing harm did not happen.

Denise says

A delightful trio of photographs. You must have a wonderful garden. Lovely photos!
