You know Autumn is closing in when you see lovely flower seed heads like this.

I came across this lovely seedhead when I was out walking my dog with my husband almost two weeks ago on our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend here in Toronto.

We were at a local park that we often go to for long hikes with our Labrador Retriever. It was late in the afternoon and the sun was bright and low in the sky. I saw the seed head with the sun shining behind it and knew I had to take a photo. I hope that you appreciate it’s simple beauty as much as I do.

I took this photo in September when the mums were in full bloom. Aren’t they lovely?

I used to not really like mums, not until I had a garden of my own anyway. They do make a nice fall flower as they add some color to the garden as most of the other plants begin to wind down (bloom wise) for the year.

Do you enjoy mums?

We had a short spell of warm weather two weeks ago, and my roses, the ones that should be shutting down for winter, are putting out new blooms! I think they are confused! LOL … well, what can I expect when it’s been a bit warmer than it usually is at this time of year eh?

The rose above is called Lavender Dreams and I think I like it’s autumn blooms better than it’s blooms any other time of year. I think it’s because their lavender color is much richer in Autumn where as it’s spring and summer blooms are more of a light pink or light mauve.

Do you garden? If you do, do you have any roses or other plants that are still blooming?

The Sedum and other flowers that I grow in my garden are beginning to fade away as Autumn brings cooler weather, but a few weeks ago, many of my garden plants were still in bloom.

The photo above is a picture of the Sedum that I grow in my front yard. I love it’s multi-coloured tiny pink flowers with their white highlights.

As I said the sedum are fading away now, but I usually leave them in the garden through winter as they look nice dried – even when they are partially covered in snow.
