Before the Last Bloom?

Today seemed a bit cooler in my garden.  We are decidedly on the downside of summer.  My friend Frans Hals showed up, again.  I put this guy in a few years ago and forgot about it . . . I was later surprised to find it blooming in September.

Pizza Crust was back today, as well.  It has about 3 more buds.

Orange Flurry is a cool little bloom.  Always a joy to have the late bloomers.  Each bloom can be savored.  And, this one is growing on me.

And, my Stellas showed up again.  I have a feeling I will be giving these away right and left as they are very fast growers. And, easy care.

That is it for this day . . . about 2 months out from freezing.  About time to get the couple of fall plants that I ordered online in the mail.  Probably next week.  I am considering one more . . . and I hope for a new job that brings me half the joy that growing these bright blooms does.  Soon.  Before the last bloom?
