I've become a huge fan of nicotiana since I planted these this year. I bought some more on my last nursery trip.
This is probably common this time of year in many gardens, Autumn Joy Sedum. Most of mine are dried and brown but this little one is a late bloomer. When I saw this photo enlarged on my computer I noticed these little black ants (or some type of bug) amongst the little buds.
I love the self-seeded alyssum. I guess that's because I could never keep alyssum going year round in Texas! That's a prostrate rosemary growing in between them.
Here's my brugmansia, the plant that drives me crazy. It only blooms in the fall but what whopper blooms it gets.
The potted geraniums (pelargoniums) are still going strong despite a couple of light (very light) freezes.
Mexican Mint Marigold (Tagetes lucida), a nice fall bloomer.
Purple petra basil, still hanging in there.
Last but not least, and not exactly a bloom, I need to give a shout out to my aeonium, Aeonium arboreum v. atropurpureum ‘Zwartzkopf’ . The poor little thing hasn't gotten the star treatment on my blog yet!
There are several other things blooming too - most of the roses, coneflower, bouganvillea, and a surprise paperwhite narcissus. Now it's time for me to see what's going on with everyone else's blooms on their blogs!
