Last Rose of Summer

I guess it's been a couple of weeks since I posted anything.  I have been busy getting ready for and having a garage sale over the weekend.  I was worn out afterwards.

Today I am showing the last of some flowers from the garden.  My shrub roses are blooming again.

Some were growing so tall that I cut them off and made a pretty center piece.


Here are a few other flowers that are still blooming

 The hummingbirds  are loving the Lantana.  I wish I could capture a picture of them.

The clematis still has a few late blooms.  I thought it was done blooming long ago but  some new growth produced a few more flowers.

 The sedum has started to bloom and the hydrangeas are starting to turn so I guess fall is here.

I picked some of the hydrangeas to put the in a basket to dry

Now I think it's time for me to start decorating for fall!

Happy Fall ya all!

Those hydrangeas are a wonderful colour!! I wish we had hummingbirds downunder here in Australia - you're lucky to have them close!!

Have a great day!
