Bloom Day — October 2014

It’s the last Bloom Day of the 2014 calendar year. 

Though it feels like fall came early, we’re not without a few final bursts of pink, purple, and brilliant yellow among the deeper autumn hues. What’s flowering where you are?

Blooms from the coast of Maine, both garden...
...and wild.

Since last month, the color of these sedum has deepened most beautifully. Here they are with black pods of false indigo in back, and our tartan calico Pippi in front (plus a stray strand of phlox).

The dahlias are putting on one final show in Massachusetts...
...while far from home, in the dusty, dried-out arroyo trail through Diablo Canyon in New Mexico where I was hiking last week, these thriving yellow beauties caught my eye.
