October

 Monarch butterfly!
Last year... no monarchs... Just viceroys...

 Got some new iris... and after the voles ate my previous ones... figured I'd try growing them in a pond... Lowes was running a close-out on this 45 ml "medium"... felt like a roll of inner tube...

Camphor weed (Heterotheca subaxillaris)
Was going to post on my golden asters, but Ellen Honneycutt beat me to it... (this year). 

Mums are blooming... I have some that threaded themselves through a tomato cage... and they're a spectacular 4 foot high! 

ageratina altissima 

Another golden aster (Chrysopsis mariana)
As many natural golden asters as I have out here.... I wild collected this one from a pasture in town...

turnips

Helianthus angustifolius



Aster (Symphyotrichum sp.) This baby is like 5 ft in height! Had to put a tomato cage around it so that I could walk past...

Glad you got a monarch this year! I just realized that I lost my following on this blog; I have rejoined!
