We are once again making our daily constitutional an act of defiance against the supposedly private path belonging to the Large, Ugly Apartments. What floral delights are on display today?
Looks like some things we’ve seen before, for starters.
We have a few last, confused Evening Primroses. What is wrong with you? You should have finished months ago!
With the advent of (somewhat) cooler weather, the proper fall flora is beginning to come into its own. Some are plants that we’ve seen recently but which are now putting on a better show.
The Mistflower is nearly as exuberant as my beloved. It is breezy enough and Sigyn dangly enough that no part of this photo is in focus.
The St. Andrew’s Cross has cooperated with a nice bloom this morning.
(sniff, sniff) No scent that I can notice, though. You could put a little more effort into things, you know, Mr. Hypericum.
More Fuzzy Bean. It and Sigyn are climbing all over everything.
The Late-flowering thoroughwort, which we looked at back in July, when it had only a few blossoms, is just covered now.
The one in the human female’s front flowerbed is similarly clothed. It is literally weighed down with bloom and is nodding over the lawn–where it will spawn hundreds of vigorous and inconvenient seedlings next spring (with a little encouragement from me, of course.)
Finally, we have the brilliant, electric-blue Dayflower.
We never get tired of this plant. If the human female is nice to me, I might try to establish a colony at the home, just so we can have a glimpse of this color every day. Goodness knows she’ll never manage it on her own.
