Fall is approaching. But some flowers from summer are still hanging on. Tenacious vines keep spreading.
I have brought all my house plants back inside before winter. They luxuriated in the rain and humidity and are now more lush than before.
Repotting House Plants To Bring Back Inside:
Some I repotted and put the plants in those pebble-like things called Hydroton that I ordered from Amazon.com.
I want to see how they do before I pot them all. See if there is a difference in plant health and appearance.
The vines on the fence look completely out of control again. One vine grows into another and they are meshed together, vining around one another.
But last time I got out there hacking them down I was sick with asthma for weeks. So I guess I’ll just have to let Mother Nature freeze them instead of cutting them back.
I still have a few roses blooming. They’re quite protected by all the lush and bountiful vines. They peek from beyond the foliage surrounding them.
Wild Morning Glories:
And the same goes for the morning glories, but they’ve slowed their growth a bit. They will probably hang on long after other flowers have stopped blooming.
I can’t recall where these mums came from. But they’re finally opening up and blooming.
I like having them in the galvanized tub.
These red berries are growing vines on the other side of my driveway. But I don’t know what they are.
I wonder if the birds eat these berries?
The Occasional Zinnia Blooming:
There is still an occasional zinnia blooming. I just love these perky flowers. They stand up to the sun when other flowering plants don’t make it.
This year the zinnias are mostly shades of red and pink. The other colors of zinnias I planted from seed didn’t come up.
The leaves are finally starting to turn colors.
I’ve got to get out to the rose garden and Swan Lake and take some photos there soon. I love to walk around Woodward Park and Swan Lake in the fall.
