So many blooms! Janie, I know you're so pleased. And how wonderful it must be to walk around every day in your new garden. I love the moss hanging down - such a romantic touch.

Pauline said...

You have so much colour in your garden, it is amazing! Thanks for leaving a comment on mine, good to hear from you.

Janet/Plantaliscious said...

Goodness, what an amazing array of blooms, so much drama. I love all the wildflowers.

Modern Mia said...

I love the color in your garden! What a gorgeous garden! I even spied some Spanish moss. I miss having that hanging on my trees. Thanks for sharing your garden today!

Hello again!
The tag on my Encore Azalea says Autumn Royalty Azalea x 'Conlec' PP10580. The tag describes it as 'Dark Purple' but the photo on the tag shows it to be a pinkish-red! The bloom color may be sensitive to the soil type. Whatever the color, I am delighted with it, and I think you will be, too.
Happy Gardening!
Lea

Wow! Your garden looks amazing!

LindaCTG said...

What an absolutely beautiful garden! It's so fun to see that Alabama is so connected to us. I'll add your wonderful blog to CTG's blogroll ASAP. So delighted to "meet you."

Layanee said...

Wow. That is a lot of color for any day. Enjoy.

@Lea..the coleus I bought as some type of pellet that had masses in one thing...& your purple encores are fabulous...I have a post scheduled in the next week or so..because my husband is taking me to Callaway & mountains....but they have bloomed for 10 months.
@Holley..I am not sure if you are like me...but I tend to be more guilty than pleased until it rains...August I did sit back & enjoy it. Also, I like spanish mo more than flowers to be honest...It gives me a sense of being 'home'.
@Layanee, Pauline, Mia, Dorothy,Janet ...thank you for the compliments..
@ Linda not sure what you mean by blogroll but I will check it out..
I have seen most of you guys blogs...& it is inspiring

Your post is full of pretty things in your October Dreams Garden.

I never got over to May Dreams to post my link. Yesterday was a busy day. Thank you for being concerned when I didn't follow through. Maybe next month when there's red foliage on the Virginia Creeper and Sumac is ablaze I'll get aboard.

So much colour! Amazing.
I love the sulfur cosmos, not seen that before. And the roses of course, still looking spectacular. I don't think I've ever seen golden rod quite that huge!

Janie Jurkiewicz said...

@Jean...I didn't realize the sumac did that until yesterday when I noticed it. My cassia has yet to bloom...yours?

@rusty...I only aspire to have gardens as beautiful as yours.

I can't get over how much is still blooming in your garden when ours is about to wrap up with a freeze this week...

Janie Jurkiewicz said...

This time of year rivals spring if not surpasses it if you include the autumn colors...why one day I'm going to call it the gardens of October...even in NC mountains the a lot of roses were still blooming, by the roadside!
