What was blooming at the cabin

I never got around to blogging about what was in bloom at the cabin. It’s not the time of year for prolific wildflowers, but there were some still putting on a show.

There were quite a few Gallardias.

Somehow these large white daisies have seeded themselves in front of the cabin and a few other locations. I don’t know if they came from the grass and wildflower seed mix we spread so many years ago or what. I don’t think they indigenous. They are pretty though!

The asters were still blooming too.

A few harebells were still hanging in there.

Rose hips and some kind of berry.

Sometimes the prettiest things are the ones no longer blooming but gone to seed.

A few flowers just naturally dry themselves which I find particularly interesting.

Here is a little dried flower garden.

And here is the bouquet I picked of all the flowers growing around the cabin.

Since we left I’ve been told that they’ve had the first snow of several inches up there. You could feel the change in the air right before we left.  Sleep well little flowers!

Beautiful seed pods!  I love astors because they come so late in the year.  I think of them as bee food, because by the time my astors bloomed (in my previous life) everything else was finishing.  The astors would be alive with bees all day long! Thanks for sharing the photos!

Thank you Jan! So glad you enjoyed them. There is nothing better for me than aiming my camera at flowers! They are so photogenic and ask nothing of me. You are right, the asters are always last. Must be a good reason for that and bee food is a perfect one!
