The asters and anemones are finished, the sedums have moved into their subdued phase and the stars of my late fall garden — the toad lilies — seem confused by our bout of warm weather. Of the varitieties that are fall bloomers, only about half of them are actually open and blooming. The rest are still in bud as though they had all the time in the world to flower. Maybe they know something I don't.
You can see what's blooming in gardens around the world by visiting Carol at May Dreams Gardens who hosts Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, this monthly round-up of what's in flower in each of our gardens mid-month.
