Ciscoe Morris Garden Bloom Day

Let's see what Ciscoe Morris's yard looks like in mid-September, a colorful time of year in the Pacific Northwest.

These flowers are dying beautifully.

The sedum is in its prime.

I'd hoped to find unusual sedums (S. cauticola) like this one at the plant sale today, but no. No heathers, either.

Okay, waitaminnit. These are unusually intimate portraits of le jardin du ciscoe. have you two met?

Beautiful! You featured as much foliage color as blooms, which really conveys the feel of early fall.

I did not meet Ciscoe. I'm afraid if I ever meet him, he's going to be mad. Although most of these photos aren't even of his yard -- they're of the city-owned parking strip around his house.

And, yeah, I'm generally more excited about foliage than flowers, so I'll probably never do a real bloom day post with only blossoms. Definitely not in early fall, as the leaves start changing color.

Dang, I drank too much at the mojito party last night and left my bag at my friend's house. I wanted to upload more photos right now. Good thing she's just across the street.

I was really bummed that I couldnt
make the sale last weekend. Were you
disappointed over-all? Any highlights
we shouldknow about?

Thanks, Marci

I love that himalayan honeysuckle. Chris says it's an invasive weed, though thanks to your pictures, I'm now arguing that if Ciscoe Morris has planted it it can't be that bad, right?
