I took these pictures last week before a round of cold wet weather came through, but have not had internet service for a few days. So I'm a few days behind getting this posted.
zinnas got huge! I think those tallest ones were about 6 ft. They make great cutting flowers too.
The Hydrangea's are turning into their beautiful fall colors.
A few Perennial Geraniums bloom here and there.
These are a butterfly magnet!!! And such a prolific reseeder. I pull out more of these than I keep. I like just a few growing in and among my other perennials.
Impatiens are so common but I still like them. This year I planted my hypertufa troughs full of them and lined them up on the front porch. They got morning sun and they did very well there. I think I will do this again next year.
I want to do a tutorial on making hypertufa troughs next year.

The Annabelle Hydrangea is a beautiful plant with massive clusters of flowers.This plant is a real trooper and just thrives in about any kind of weather. The blooms are white in the summer and turn this pretty color green in the fall. If I had one complaint it would be the blooms can get so heavy they droop to the ground.
