Extended Forecast

I’m working on extending the flowering season in my garden. I figure the longer I can make it look like summer, the longer I can pretend winter is not coming.

The sunflowers growing just outside the entrance to our house are doing a good job of keeping things cheerful as the nights begin to cool. In addition, cosmos are still blooming, autumn sedum are waking up, lavender is putting on a second showing, tall phlox are hanging in there, and a random balloon flower or black-eyed susan is making an appearance. Yes, I just replenished my wool sock supply and cold weather is on its way, but let’s just ignore that and enjoy the view.
