Black Eyed Susans

The black eyed Susans are still blooming in the fields

and in the gardens!

It has been a month now!

Grape Leaf Anemone

Again at the College,

this lovely flower is called the grape leaf anemone.

It is about four feet tall,

with a bright yellow centre.

Another plant at the Algonquin College gardens is amaranth.
I had not seen the brown or the white varieties before.

The plants can be six feet tall, and often need staking, due to the weight of the flowers.

The drooping flowers are also known as love lies bleeding.

I love the way the sun shines through the petals!


The clematis flowers are going to seed, or whatever they do.

Skywatch Friday

I have heard of hyacinth beans before,

but this is the first I have actually seen them.

This is the best photo I got of the pods, though.


The cannas are blooming in the garden where the oriental poppies were,

earlier in the summer.

The two hibiscus plants down the street are blooming now.

I love photographing them!

Morning Glories

The white morning glories,

and these pale blue ones, are ones

I have not seen in the area before.

I can add them to the list

of good colours for morning glories!

Watery Wednesday

The borage is still blooming,

although it is starting to get ahead of me, and setting seed.

But more raindrops are still a good thing.

The hairs on the plants hold them so well!

Rose of Sharon


The hollyhocks are not looking as nice as they were.

I don't know if it is late in the season for them,

or if they are catching something.

I still love them against the blue sky!
