The giant asters started to bloom in September and continued into October. I love this photo snapped by one of my Book Club friends. This variety was gifted to me by a dear friend and I try to share them too.

October starts with Dahlias in full bloom and then once frost hits, a sweet good bye. These were my favorites this year, lots of blooms and long lasting.
The heirloom mums began to bloom at the start of the month, I love the fall colors!
One of the last flowers to bloom is Toad Lily aka Tricyrtis hirta a unique, delicate shady perennial.
Sage, aka Salvia officianalis Berggarten also known as Garden Sage is a great fall filler. This is the same sage used in cooking for stuffing and poultry dishes. Designers use it for pumpkin centerpieces.
One of the most important tasks of October is to direct seed for spring flowers. I’ll be discussing this and other tasks at my first Beginner Gardening Fall Prep Class on Sunday, October 29th. This one hour class will include information about soil testing, direct seeding, hardy annuals and cover cropping. A few spots remain!
Look for our flowers at Overlea Farmer’s Market, October 28th located at 6908 Bel Air Road in Overlea. It’s the last market of the season!
As my fifth season wraps up, I continue to focus on both growing high quality flowers for my community and teaching others about locally grown flowers. We’ve had a wonderful year selling unique, scented, long lasting flowers to local designers. If you are planning an event, please consider them and their distinctive designs.

It wouldn’t be fall without long walks in the woods. Archie and I have been taken advantage of the gorgeous weather. We love it! I hope you are enjoying the best of the season.
