It just keeps blooming

My yellow sunset climbing rose refuses to believe winter is coming 
and continues to produce bloom after bloom.
complete with bee fly
I think it really loves the cooler weather.
My Armur Maple on the other hand, 
turned briliant red and dropped it’s leaves at the first hint of fall! 
I love its color!

Hot Weather and Yellow Roses!

Today summer came back and with a vengeance! 
It was somewhere in the 90’s today with lots of humidity. 
So, you would think after a long day of working out in this, the last thing I would want to do is be outside!
Nope, not me! 
When I got home today, and after unloading my new bounty from the Garden Center (yes, it’s an addiction!)
I did a quick tour of my garden and saw my yellow climbing rose was blooming! 
Her name is Golden Sunset and she has a glorious honeysuckle like scent!

This is my favorite rose of all time~ and yes, she’s a mail order girl! Jung’s Seeds about six or seven years ago. She’s hardy to Zone 4 and disease resistant.

She gets around 12 feet tall but right now she’s a little sprawled out.
A few other things were blooming as well!
My Gift Peony

These were given to me by my neighbor who’s friend dug out a Peony hedge from her yard about ten years ago.  Nobody knew the variety but oh do they have the sweetest scent!

My Huskers Red Penstemon finally boomed.

Pretty little flowers remind me of foxglove…..
and my little fern… 
My Japanese painted fern has seen better days. It’s not as full this year. I might have to move it.
and my new D&J’s Fuchsia
I’m going to start him in a ceramic pot on the deck

and work my way up to a hanging basket
