Purple Frame Blooms of October

I know, I know, October blooms are supposed to be yellow, orange or white, dark red and purple (like those of mums). But what to do, here they are, in full bloom: some pink, red and purple flowers from my garden. It might have something to do with this summer which was so warm and sunny here in the Pacific Northwest.

  2. Hello dear gardening friends! Thank you for stopping by in my summery October garden! Can you tell me please, if you ever return here, to the comments, or you'd rather prefer me to visit your blog and answer you questions, etc. It'll be very helpful for me to know.

  4. Hi Tatyana, I have been choosing the follow-up comment to my email address (on those blogs that have that choice). I try to comment on my comments within my blog comment area...if I go and visit all again to reply...think it would take a lot more time. I like visiting the other bloggers, but to read their posts, not to reply to their comment. Does this make sense?

  5. I'll takes out of season colors like these anyday!! (who says, what colors are for what season anyway?) tee hee I have found it's easier for me to go to the person's blog and answer their questions there...

  6. Lovely summer blooms indeed but the asters say it is fall. That shot of the rose with the spider web is SO wonderful!

  7. I really like the fushia flowers. The best picture is the spiderweb. About your question, Tatyana. If I ask a question on your post, then I wish that you answer it in your post because the question is related to your post. If you visit my blog, leaving a comment regarding my own post, no matter short will be much appreciated, otherwise I won't know that you were here.

  11. Tatyana, your photos are always so beautiful and artistic. The health of your plants speaks volumes for the care you give your garden.

  12. Gorgeous photos! totally amazing bloom. I fell in love with the last picture..! its beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  13. Spectacular pictures! The spider web is perfect, the clematis reminds me of a feather, and the lacecap hydrangea is so very dainty.

    I do try and remember where I've left messages, so I can go back and read responses, but I haven't found a good system yet. I always love to have people by my blog, it's quite new so I really appreciate comments. Whichever works better for you is fine with me. :)

  14. I think my favorite flower colors are pinks and purples because they are cool colors, which helps cool down my desert landscape, at least visually.

    ReplyDelete
  15. love the spider web. I tried to get a picture of one yesterday and failed. I think I need a class:(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Don't you just love the hardy fuchsias? They bloom forever. It still looks like summer there. I'm just amazed with how much is still blooming. I love the Clematis picture.
    I started trying to visit blogs instead of replying to all the comments. I never know if anyone comes back to read them.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi Tatyana, love all your flowers and images (how do you do to make the pictures so big??). I garden in the very south pacific ocean, well not near the ocean but in the Los Andes mountains, up high to 1080 mts. high, the ocean is about 170 kms from here.
    I love too your border in progress of the last post.
    muchos cariños

  18. I've never seen a photo which shows a clematis flower so dramatically. It's incredible. A flying saucer and an angel.

  19. What fabulous shots and I am so envious that you still have so many blossoms to photograph! These are all so beautiful. I think that spider photo is incredibly cool! Check out the design it weaved. That's cool!

  20. Gosh such lovely photos.
    Most unusual Hydranga colour Endless Summer

  21. Tatyana your purple's are beautiful. Purple my fav color. What a beautiful dahlia. Fuschia's and hydrangea's to die for. Just beautiful. How bout the spider. When you run into a spider web do you do the "dance" trying to get it off your face. Happened to me this morning - should have seen me doing a jig right there in the yard.

    ReplyDelete
  22. And those few turquoise flowers on the hydrangea. Does Endless summer always do that?

    ReplyDelete
  23. If I ask a question on someone's blog it pertains to their post - I go back to that blog to follow up. If someone asks me a question on my blog I answer it on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love your purples and pinks and I can almost smell your roses. I also have fuschia envy now! About your question, I click on the 'email followup comments' to see if a blogger has responded to my question, if I have one. It seems the easiest thing to do for all involved. Of course I'll always welcome a visit from you to my blog as well!

  25. There doesn't seem to be a really good system for q & a, does there? I go to the blogs of others to answer their questions because I always wonder if they, like I, might not always remember where they asked a question. I answer in my own blog as well if it is a non-specific-to-the-questioner query that might help others.

    You asked about my 'little bluestem' grass not having the color purple as your bluestem does. Usually big bluestem is expected to have the purple flower spikes. Did you buy A. gerardii, A. alomeratus, A. teranrius or A. scoparius? What I showed is just Andropogon species, native to the southeast and growing in the wild here. This is not a grass that I would plant in a garden setting, but it is beautiful in a meadow.

    My information comes partly from Peter Loewer's Ornamental Grasses for the Southeast.

    Lovely photos on your blog; Happy Bloom Day.

  26. I love the pink and purple! All of your flowers still look so fresh. It must be nice to garden where it isn't so darn hot (of course, it is cool here now and we're complaining. Never satisfied! LOL)

  27. Мистерия цвета!!! Но пурпурный клематис и пурпурная с белым фуксия - это моё всё! Таю :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Very pretty! Your flowers still look wonderful~

    ReplyDelete
  29. Tatyana and your beautiful garden. I love the fuschias. The summer heat nipped two of mine, but two remain. They're not sure if they should try to bloom again. I like comments on my blog, as I don't return to see yours.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the asters and the way the colors change in the single shot. Very nice, and that final mum has a nostalgia to it's richness. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  31. All I can see about this post is WOW, WOW, WOW and more WOW!!! I'm ALWAYS dazzled by your amazing pics! As for answering questions, I'd prefer you stop by my blog since I don't always make a return visit to the comments section of those blogs I've visited. I try to revisit them, but I have a hard time keeping track of them.

  32. Thank you for spending a part of this Bloom day in my garden!

    Janet, I'm pleased that you liked that angle! I was amazed that the bloom was so flat! I see what you are saying about comments. Thanks!

    Camille,thanks! we have so many spiders this year, they just jump on the camera!

    Tina, thank you! Don't get me wrong, but I'd prefer spiders to your wasps! I hope they are friendly creatures!

    Autumn Belle, thank you! I have several spider pictures. Maybe , I need to put them all in one post?

    Dirt Princess, thanks! I think this is the best part of the year for hydrangeas. I love this vintage color, too.

    Dear Lona, I want it back, too!

    SoNa, так не хочется в зиму, в серость и дождь! Вот и буду смотреть на цветочки. Спасибо тебе, всегда рада тебя видеть!

    Di, thank you!You make me blush.

    Urban Green, you know, it's my favorite! Thank you! I thought it deserved to be posted separately, but then included it to this post.

    Rebecca, thank you!I don't remember another year when I took so many spiderweb'pictures. There were no so many of them!

    Darla! I like your approach!Hooray for all the colorsany time of the year!

    Azplantlady, I've never thought about this, but you are absolutely right, they look cooler than oranges and yellows. Thanks!

    Debbi, thanks! Class sounds good, but sometimes taking 4-6 pictures helps (at least, for me!). One of them could be good!

    Catherine, thank you! I lost only one of my hardy fuchsias (maybe, it wasn't hardy?) My dream is to have a tall fuchsia tree. will see how big my magellanica will grow.

    Maria, thank you! I need your e-mail address to answer your question.

    Esther, thank you for stopping by! Thanks for your comment! This is exactly what I thought - a flying saucer! I didn't see an angel, but after reading your comment, I see what you mean!

    Miss Daisy, thank you! I went back and look at that design. it is interesting!

    Joanne, thank you! Once, I saw how they called this color in a store - vintage. I like it.

    Becca, you made me laugh! I danced this summer, but not because of a spider, but a bee that got under my shirt when I passed some flowers at night. I'm glad it was dark! Wish I could see your wild dance!

    Diana,thank you. The color might depend on the type of soil.

    Jean, thank you! Do I have such feature? I think I do.

    Nell, thank you! My plant is scoparium. After your comment, I look on the internet and yes, there are so many types of this grass!

    Cameron, thanks! Soon, we all here will want to be where you are!

    Вольдемарушка, уж как я по тебе соскучилась! Ну очень рада тебя видеть в своем саду! Тот клематис действительно чудесный, самый лучший из моих. А фуксия и правда красивая. Не теряйся, заходи почаще!

    Hi Heather! Thanks for stopping by! You are so busy now with your new additions!

    Mary, thank you! Your fuchsia might like cooler weather. OOps, you said you never return to read my comments, then why am I talking to you here? Need to go to your blog!

    Laura, thank you! White is always nice, isn't it?

  33. A brilliant parade of autumn flowers, Tatyana ... and one handsome spider!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You have gorgeous pictures for Bloom Day. I love pinks and purples, they are my favorite colors in the garden. The Clematis shot is really lovely with the border in the background. The purple of the Endless Summer is something I don't often see in hydrangeas (the pH must have to be just right) but it's beautiful when it happens. I love all of the fushcias and the spider shot.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow! Tatyana! What stunning blooms ... your photos are amazingly beautiful! The mother-in-law rose with the remarkable capture of the spiders perfect web. The poetry in the bud and bloom ... the spider makes three... it is painfully beautiful! I love it! All the other photos and blooms are great too and then you present Dr. Ruppel! What an eye! You are such an artist! Everything about this photo is wonderful! More poetry with the Quasar fuchsia... Lovely! Lovely! Brava!! Incredible post. Thank you! Carol

  36. I just saw your question Tatyana... I find it hard to remember to go back to all the comments... I would love your visiting my blog and not having to answer my comment here. Answering comments when you get as many as you do is a part time job... I wonder how others feel... I will have to check. Again a wonderful post! Carol

    ReplyDelete
  37. OK so I read through what others wrote... if I ask a particular question I could see why you may answer it at your blog but if not I would think going to others blog and just commenting in kind would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Purple and pink are two of my favorite colors in the garden, so I think they're perfect for autumn! Lovely blooms for October.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can't decide which picture I love the most..these are fantastic!! The one of the clematis is done at a wonderful angle! Wonderful, just wonderful!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pinks and purples are always beautiful. Love those fuchsias! Doesn't Mr. Lincoln have the most wonderful perfume? He's been around for quite a long time in my garden..my oldest rose, in fact.
    Your October garden is lovely and still very colorful.
