This weekend I put the zucchini, morning glories and alyssum in the waste bin.  There is still a lot of color in the garden, though.

Leaves of the Viburnum, Blue Muffin.

Zinnia – I think these are called California Giant, or something like that.  So popular with butterflies.

Flowering Kale – Nagoya White

These flox reseed themselves around the garden.  Other flowers currently blooming are asters, foxgloves, gaillardias, and the pineapple sage.

We are really enjoying the zebra grass, but having trouble getting a good picture.  All the ornamental grasses are interesting this time of year.

I meant to chop up this parsley to put in the freezer today, but it did not happen.  I did find two swallowtail caterpillars on the parsley by the zinnias.

Snow Crocus bulbs.  It takes time to plant crocus and daffodil bulbs, but I think I will really enjoy them in the spring.
