Day's are becoming shorter here at Dog Trot Farm and the flower gardens are taking on the look of fall. They prominent color in the garden right now is yellow

Fall asters have started to blossom

Cone flowers are still in abundance

Endless summer hydrangea are starting to fade

A new favorite cosmos called " mardi gras"

Brown eyed rudbeckiacone flowers in a shade of violet


It is hard to believe September has arrived. Soon it will be time to put the gardens to bed. However, until that time arrives I will enjoy every minute of visual beauty the garden has to offer.

Julie the flowers in your gardens are gorgeous. My coneflowers are shot but the seeds are feeding the goldfinch. Inspired by Eve and Debi I want all us blogging girlies to sit in your garden and sip some wine and eat some wonderful munchies and laugh till we cry...a girlie can dream. How fun would that be? Oh and the picture takin' stories...

Julie this is just beautiful!! I agree with RR...as soon as I become independently wealthy we'll all meet at your house for wine and Mike's Hard Lemonade!!! We'll take turns each summer!
The cosmos is my favorite!! and the brown-eyed susan and the hydrangea...and.....

Oh what beautiful photo's of your garden flowers!!! I couldn't pick a favorite because I love them all!
Our gardens here are getting ready for a winter's rest too. I'm sad to see summer end already and these cool nights, brrrr....
It was 44 this morning. I'm just not ready to say goodbye to the warmth of summer. I guess that's one of the downsides to living in Maine. Short summers and long winters.
Enjoy your fall beauty!
Hugs~ Birgit

Your flowers are beautiful! I love all of them but have always wanted to grow cone flowers. No luck yet, but I will keep trying! I know the calendar says it's coming but I can't feel Fall yet. The leaves turning must be gorgeous where you are. Thanks for sharing your flowers.
