Final Blooms ?

In between packing for our fall road trip to New England, paying bills,  and putting things put away in the yard, I checked out the wildflower jungle garden this weekend. It’s still producing lots of flowers, but the weather turned sharply cooler this weekend, so their bloom time may be short-lived.

Have a safe trip and snap lots of pics. I would have suggested Middlebury VT, but I see on the other post of yours it must be closed. I love the quaintness' of Middlebury and love Stowe for the hayrides.

Thanks Sandra - it was quite colorful..and still is!

Steve, that's true, but after our hot and humid summer, we're ready for fall and cooler temps here.

Thanks Tammy, we are still going to try and see if we can get to see at least a portion of Vermont, since we will be so close in NH. Thanks for the compliment on the flowers, they DO say fall to me.

The orange colours look warm, hot even. Sad they will be short lived.

I thought id stop by your blog and say hello. And i hope your enjoying the beautiful fall weather that has begun. Richard from Amish Stories.

Thanks Elaine and Christer.

John, these colors looked even hotter during our hot and humid summer days. As long as the weather stays a bit mild (no frost) they may last well into November. But then we will mulch everything down and wait for next spring for the re-blooming.

Daisy, thanks we have enjoyed these blooms very much this spring, sumemr and now fall.

THANKS, Sweet Virginia Breeze, Snapper II, and Kathleen for the compliment and good wishes on our travels.
