The first photo is of a colchicum which just popped up after the steady rains we had for the past few days. I had given up all hope that the batch of fall-blooming bulbs I'd ordered were ever coming up -- this one bloomed and is being followed by about 5 others. Late, but certainly welcome.
The second photo is of another Mum Society seedling purchase (see earlier Go Team entry). Again, can't recall this one's name. I'm going to call it "Mum Sandwich," since all the blooms are in tight bunches of 3-4 flowerheads like this one.
Aside from these two, I have the following on parade at the moment:
- Aster monch
- Beautyberry/Callicarpa - not blooms, just brilliant purple berries
- Black-eyed Susan
- Grasses (various)
- Hydrangea (red)
- Mums, various including Sheffield Pink
- Rhododendron PJM
- Roses (Alba Meidiland)
