October blooms

Bloom Day (started by Carol at May Dreams Gardens) is an invitation for garden bloggers to show what is blooming in their gardens on the 15th of each month. The fall color seems to be sadly lacking this year but maybe it is still just too early. We are still dry, dry, dry. I didn't get a chance to photograph all the blooms in my garden but here is what I have for this month...

The roses have a final fling in the fall. The first one is the colorful David Austin rose "Pat Austin"

"Gartendirektor Otto Linne" is a wonderful shrub rose

This little miniature came from our first garden, almost fifteen years ago. It is called "Rise-N-Shine"

This is a hybrid musk rose called "Prosperity"

You can always depend on coleus for a strong splash of color

The sasanqua camellias are just beginning to bloom. This one is "Hana Jiman"

I love Mexican Bush Sage

And what would fall be without chrysanthemums?
