the mum grew in nicely this fall... I'll be more careful with the red amaranthus next season. It really took over the front bed, but at least it was in the back as an anchor to color.
the dahlia's began to bloom again once it cooled off. Also end of October I had a rebloom on this one daylily. I was also pleased with the blue salvia in bloom next to the orange lion's mane.

views of the SW corner of the house with the red amaranthus and castor bean. and next the NE side of the house with a nice clump of grass, since removed. :)
I've been really happy with the purple heart, chocolate euphorbia, and artemisia on the north side of the house among the daylilies. a Dahlia bloom
some yellow topped amaranthus and surprise lilies (lycoris), and next too many daylily seedlings that hopefully I can see something in 2 years fun and new.. .:)

It's not a perennial, I had to bring it in last winter and I'm hoping to do the same this year to see if I can get an even nicer bigger plant next season. I bought this at a roadside nursery in N OKC. But I'd like to know what the name is possibly.......hmmm Anyone have one or recognize???

well, either the daylilies were blooming less or it was getting too hot to get up and photograph anything in the yard....so not posts lately. my garden is doing well, I'm just watering it either late evenings or more likely in the mornings before breakfast... soon I'll have soaker hoses out to turn on since I'll be busy with back to school schedule here in the next couple weeks. Things can remian pretty hot here in OKC whether it's August or September... I have been watering everything enough to keep them living and green, and will be excited to see what blooms once the weather cools back down some in the daytime... pics coming soon...

really like this little guy. the clump keeps increasing and the blooms shout out to be seen in the morning. also from the street there's a definite show of purple going on... I've tried here to include a photo taken with flash (6 and 7) to show the real color..
these were taken between blooms from June 20 up til Jul 5th.

lots of rain this morning, and all day so I took a few photos before it started pouring down. This is Happy Apache, Siloam Rhinestone, and Siloam Copper Kettle.
Siloam Rhinestone, a garden pic of north wall (that's Siloam Andrew Trotter in the corner there so gold), and Siloam Perry Dyer

Siloam Dean's Double. I like the first pic because the blooms always look great up against the Eupatorium 'Chocolate' and the gray Artemesia. the second pic is fun because the bloom in the background almost makes a mirror sort of effect.
This is Siloam Sambo with some nice red Coleus , rubber tree, and dark Purple Purilla in the background. nice deep dark hues going on here. click on the first pic and study which is the daylily and which is the coleus. :)
some pizzaz in the yard from this Asiatic Lily which bloomed quite a dark pink this summer for some reason. no complaints from me though! and I'm throwing in this last pic.... I was up on the roof putting a flag out and thought this shot looked interesting. :)
