Feels like Autumn...


I've admired the foliage on this oenonthra for a number of years... finally caught it in bloom...
Took a bit of doing to winnow out specifically which one this was.
We eventually settled on Oenothera filipes

 The bluestem is colouring up nicely...

Threadleaf coreopsis and monarda.
Another pic of the threadleaf coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata)
 Coreopsis verticillata is on the state watch list
And... while naturally occurring here.... it is not an easy plant to increase, as the voles eat every bit of it that I attempt to grow in the garden! the plant in the picture is in a container...

Close up of the monarda punctata.

 Pink Malvaviscus


euonymus americanus
Hibiscus coccineus and rudbeckia triloba

Spider... eating a butterfly on the lespadeeza...

Watermelon...

The pears are hanging heavily...

I don't believe I've ever heard of monarda punctata. How unusual looking.
