Today's photos are from Nina Schlosberg in Waltham, Massachusetts. We first saw Nina's garden back in April (refresh your memory HERE.) Nina says, "Here are some shots taken at the end of the season in my garden. The blue monkshood (Aconitum) and pink windflowers are the very last to bloom for me. And they seem to persist through to mid fall despite tropical storm Sandy… The tall yellow sneezeweed (Helenium) attracts a lot of bees in the fall and looks pretty good against a backdrop of Hydrangea paniculata blooms with their changing hues into late fall. And my hound Lily keeps track of all the garden aromas, but she's really hoping to get a whiff of a bunny!" Your garden is still beautiful, Nina, but I'm truly loving Lily the dog! She looks soooo sweet! Thanks for sharing again.

tractor1 writes: cwheat000: I bet Lily is a foodhound, aren't all dogs. LOL

I sure wish the Log-On-Save feature would work. Posted: 1:35 pm on December 10th
cwheat000 writes: Beautiful. I like the contrasting lighter colored monkshood ,as well. The helenium makes quite a show,also. Those are two I will have to try in my garden. Is Lily a foxhound?I am a sucker for big dogs. Posted: 11:10 am on December 10th
Sheila_Schultz writes: Nina... your photos are a great way to start my week! I'm thinkin' that Lily deserves an extra little treat this mornin'. Posted: 11:04 am on December 10th
tractor1 writes: That blue monkshood is stunning even in low light. And that cutey Lily of the Valley looks so sweet. I like that hanging planter, I hope there's wire embedded in the macrame or it may rot and let loose... I'd sew in fishing monofilament. Posted: 9:19 am on December 10th
meander1 writes: Nina, my goodness, the vibrancy of the blue in your monkshood is amazing...it borders on being electric. What a treat to have such a strong color statement amongst all the subdued fall tones. Ha, would you believe that for a fleeting minute I thought to myself, "hmmm, a hound Lily...I'm not familiar with that plant". Whew, caught myself in time before I went off on a google search!
Everything looks lovely and it is interesting to see the differences between your fall garden and the pictures you shared earlier. Posted: 7:53 am on December 10th
