Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

It is time for another Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, but I have no flower blooms in the garden, we have had a couple of very hard frosts and the perennials are settling in for their winter rest.
 The annuals are only memories.
So for this GGBD I have decided to pick two colors, red and yellow,
 and show you a sample of what I had blooming in each season using these colors.

In Spring:
 Eranthis hymalis (Winter aconite)
Red Tulips

In Summer:
Hemerocallis 'Canada Goose' (Canada Goose daylily)
Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam' (Moonbeam coreopsis)

In Fall:
Clematis orientalis seedhead
Acer saccharum (Sugar Maple Tree)
Parthenocissus quinquefolia (Virginia Creeper)

See what other garden bloggers have blooming in their garden at
May Dreams Gardens

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!

What an uplifting collection - beautiful colours and I enjoy seeing more than the garden variety of flowers. My pansies are still blooming and that's unheard of here.

Great photographs. We broke the garden down yesterday. I still have some blooms but we need to close the cottage down. We are having a nor'easter with rain today so I'm glad that job is done.

Thank you so much for answering my questions. I am digesting the information now.

Have a wonderful weekend.

That's a lovely daylily... I also like the view into the center of the tree! L

Dear Jennifer, What a pretty seasonal collage you show here. Although your flowers are over, it is rather good, I always feel, to have some breathing space in the garden.

Betty Jo said...

What a beautiful grouping. Love the various seasonal colors and textures.

Heidi said...

I stumbled upon your blog and I love it! I used to live in northeast Michigan, not too far from where you are. Have a great weekend!

What a lovely collection! I need a poster of this for my office wall. Very pretty. ;-)

Town Mouse said...

How interesting, I actually like your fall photos the best. That view up the tree is contest-worthy ;->

Happy bloom day!

A beautiful collage! Every season has its own beauty; all too soon the primary color will be white, I'm afraid. The frost hasn't really hit us yet, but I think it's only a matter of time.

A nice way to show the seasons Jen - good photos.

julieQ said...

So very pretty...we still have some blooms hanging on, as we don't really have a hard winter here.

Wonderful - and I have nothing in my garden right now - not one thing blooming - though things are very green.

Genie said...

Your seasonal flowers mosaic is beautiful...a clever and lovely way to describe the time of year in photographs

A wonderful collage.

I think you came up with the perfect solution by creating this really beautiful mosaic. It's kind of amazing to me that you've had hard frosts already but I guess it is mid October! Autumn is late arriving here – our trees are still barely in color and the days have been warm. Wishing you a cozy week!

A beautiful mosaic with a wonderful collection of flowers. We have not had a frost yet, so I have a few plants still hanging in there.
