Brilliant

The Brilliant (Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’) is blooming beautifully.

It is a new variety I bought this year and I like the color. The others I have are variations of darker pink.

Most of the other flowers are now gone and it makes the sedums stand out. The first frost came few days ago but does not yet affect hardy plants like sedums which are going to continue blooming several weeks from now.

Ornamental Brassica

Autumn is here. The trees are loosing their leaves. A constant flow of bird flocks flying south accompanied by a steady wind from the north. During the nights temperatures are below the freezing point.

Some of the plants are still coping. The ornamental brassicas are at their best bringing color to the garden.

Not a good year for them though. The hails, the maggots and I chose a wrong variety in the spring. Must try to find a different one for the next summer.

A long wait for the spring is about to begin.
