Mushroom Delight

by GardenJoy
(Kingston Ontario)

This is a large, dense, driftwood log hubby dragged home for me one year .. it is one of my favorites .. all sorts of surprises pop up on or near it. The colour and shape of this mushroom almost looks good enough to eat .. but I think it is safe : )

Autumn Fire Sedum with Purple Sage

by GardenJoy
(Kingston Otario)

I am in awe of this sedum paired with my favorite purple sage .. it really flatters each other with the contrast of colour and texture .. glad to have found Autumn Fire and placed one plant, of a few (wink wink) with the sage.

Great combination!
by: Ferne, Kamloops

Thanks for sharing that combination Joy. I will be looking up more information on Autumn Fire. I have a wide range of blue to purple perennials that tend to be on the airy side and am concentrating on finding one or two good low maintenance plants with substance that I can multiply easily and also will add some contrast both in colour and texture. This looks like being a good candidate.

I waited until the sun caught the flower on the right. I had to wait a while as I recall, for the clouds to pass.

Butterfly on Bloom

by Jen
(Suffield CT)

A friend of mine took this picture from his garden. The butterfly had just landed, and was still there when he came back with his camera. I thought it was such a breathtaking picture that I now have it as my screensaver

This isn't my picture, but pretty sure that's a 'teddy bear' sunflower.

Monarch
by: Moni

This is a nice photo. What flower is your monarch on? The butterfly looks small in comparison to the flower, tho female monarchs are smaller than males...the bloom is large.

Autumn Colours with Ornamental Grass

by GardenJoy
(Kingston Otario)

I'm not exactly sure which grass this is .. I was hoping to clarify that it is Huron Sunrise .. but I have to confess my plant tages that year are a mystery. None the less it has really surprised me this year with such beautiful colour variation.

The flower you have pictured as Yellow Bells, I have this in pink, white and the yellow as you have posted. But, we call it Angel's Trumpet. I think it smells like Pledge dusting spray.
