Things are winding down in the flower beds, and the Fall bloomers have kicked in. My Black Jack Sedum is ahead of the Autumn Joy in the bloom progression, so I will show it this week.
My Coreopsis are in their third flush of blooms
Both varieties get covered with bees this time of the year
My grasses are ready to show off too. Although it looks like the sprinkler is on spraying in this flower bed, it is my Sand Love Grass along next to my Artemisia.
Some of the sedum in my enamel bowl planter is in bloom also
I admired this yard when we were in Monticello, IA in August. Her old rusty bikes were calling my name. I love the way she has them scattered in her berm - - it looks like they are having a party.
Of course, I had to take a picture of each one separately. I love this one, and don't think I've every seen one this old before. While I love the basket, I think I would have chosen live flowers for it.
Look at the solid front wheel and the pedals on this one
This one looks a lot like the one I have in my landscape
I really like the setting she has by the door. An old grocery cart - again, I would have chosen live flowers, but it still has charm.
Hopefully next post I will get the rest of our last visit to the Riverside Gardens in Monticello, IA
