I've been slowly putting my gardens to bed for the coming winter. I have a few things to do yet though. My roses need covered, we still need to harvest our onions and leeks, we have one tiny tree to plant but as soon as those things are done I'll have to live by my garden dreams alone.
Jon made me a new bed last weekend and I planted about 110 spring bulbs. I took some shots of the few remaining blooms. I love our seasons, but it's sad when I know my blooms are done for another year.

I have a few cosmos still blooming and I guess I probably will until we get our first snow fall - thank God for cosmos!
My morning glories didn't do very well this year - in fact I didn't even get a blossom until September, but I have a few still hanging on.
I have a few wild roses and a few roses still blooming. Unless we get a hard frost in the next week or so I might still get a few more roses too!
My sweet peas did about as well as my morning glories this year but as of late last week I still had a bloom or two. They're so beautiful and the fragrance is just wonderful - the memories will hold me through the winter.
A random lupin...I started these from seed this spring expecting to get a few blooms early next summer. It's a little out of season, but I'm not complaining!
