Forsythia amazes me. I’m not sure how this little bloom is hanging on through the freezing weather, but it is!
Photo taken last week in Charlottesville, Virginia on Forsythia Hill.
On a freezing cold day like today I like to remember warm colors of Summer.
These Daylilies in Claire’s Garden were amazing (she is in the green shirt in the background). She propagated this variety of Daylily!
This is the most beautiful Dahlia, Kevin Floodlight, that is a huge yellow, dinner plate sized!

This shot of a beautiful Lilac Floral Arrangement was taken by me while on the Virginia Historic Garden Week tour in Richmond, Virginia this past April.
It’s hard to believe the gardening season has once again sped by. Winter gives me the opportunity to plan for next years gardening adventure!
White Winter Anemones in the Heather Gardens, Fort Tryon Park on the way to the Cloisters Museum in Upper Manhattan, New York City.
What a treasure these gardens are!
I love the Art Deco Empire State Building Exterior.
Even across the street the planter boxes filled with Begonia are Deco.
… and don’t even get met started about the profusion of beauty in the Rose Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
This pale pink was heavenly.
Brilliant Yellow Jerusalem Artichoke Bloom ~ one of many in the Thomas Jefferson garden plot at Monticello.
The tubers of this plant can be harvested in the Fall and eaten like Potatoes! Can’t wait to try them!
Photo taken last year at the Heritage Harvest Festival.
Happy Labor Day off for most of us! Relax and experience nature somehow today.
Blue Morning Glory in full bloom now on Forsythia Hill. It looks smashing with the yellow Black Eyed Susan.
The bristly oxtongue, Picris echioides.
I allow it to grow by the road - it’s classified as a “weed” but it is kinda pretty in a big swath. This area gets mowed once the blooms fade.
