Today’s photos are from Lil Holloway in Bedford, Massachusetts. We’ve visited Lil’s garden once before, HERE. Today she says, “I am just getting started on fall plants. In the past, come October, the tools would be put away and, other than covering my roses, everything happened in the spring.
Fortunately for me, I became friends with local gardeners in Carlisle, Kathy and Mark. With their urging, I started looking at fall as an extended season. I started with sedums, then put in the anemones and asters. And to my delight all the varieties of hyssops do well into fall.
I feel very fortunate to have knowledgable folks that not only share the ins and outs of different plants, but grow only what does well in this area. My big garden is still a bit anemic, so I take photos of what’s still colorful….maybe next year we’ll have more to offer.”
Looks pretty full to me, Lil! My fave is that daylily/hyssop combo–stunning!
Help me keep kicking out posts all winter long–send me photos of your gardens NOW! Email me at [email protected] Thanks! –Michelle

Good morning Lil. How nice to wake up to new photos from your garden. I can see that you have continued to listen to your plants and have graduated from being an inexperienced gardener to one who can offer advice instead. Good work! Your aster 'Monte Casino' is gorgeous! Also love the rose 'Marmalade Skies', the Anemone japonicas and of course 'Autumn Joy' sedum. Happy fall!
Lil, you have introduced me to some new "must haves" like a good gardening friend should. The billowing white aster made me laugh ( I thought you'd called it Monte Crisco; bifocals do bring humor sometimes.) And the anemone. And the intense Heatwave Hyssop set off with your yellow lily: what a dynamite combo.
Thank you for the dash of color this AM.
Seems you found the perfect Aster'Monte Casino'looks like it love where you have placed it. Lil don't you just love it when you find friends who share there gardening love with you so your garden will look its best also. I enjoyed your photos so much but I had to dig to find them though. The post from last Friday is what was up this morning in my in box ,so I had to google Fine gardening blog for today and I was finally able to locate yours. I'm sure everyone else will catch up soon.
Good morning Lil, like Nurserynotnordstrom, I had to go searching for today's post, but I am so glad I did. Your jump into the world of fall flowers has certainly been worth it ;)
I'm always in Echinacea lust since they refuse to overwinter in my gardens, your blooms are gorgeous... and don't you just love hyssops? They come in so many colors and once they start blooming they don't stop until winter raises it's ugly head! Enjoy the rest of your fall days!
Congratulations Lil on your beautiful garden. Your front porch is similar design as mine and I love the plantings along it. I have to use pots as my soil is full of cedar roots which just stunts everything. I have not seen a white Aster before but I love that one and will look for it. That photo of the Marmalade Skies is gorgeous.
I too couldn't find the blog this morning but after searching was greatly rewarded.
Hi Lil, what a wonderful garden you have. I can't believe you still have so many blooms in Oct. like you I usually put my garden away about this time. You have inspired me to look around, see what's blooming now and add my own fall color. My favorite pic is the daylily and hyssop. Thanks so much for sharing
Wonderful garden. Love to see other people's gardens-they give me great ideas for mine.
Hi, Lil, include me as enthralled and enchanted by your aster 'Monte Casino'...that is quite an impressive show of dainty white blooms it puts out. I just recently have become a fan of the fall blooming anemones and have added some to my perennial bed areas. Yours are lovely. How nice that you have some gardening buddies to give you advice and bounce around ideas with...that adds to the fun.
Somehow I missed this post. Great job adding some fall interest. I used to dismiss fall interest because I felt it was so fleeting, but then I realized that a blazing fall show lasts as long as the Spring wonderland. It is really nice to end the gardening season with a bit of a bang!
I would be interested to know how much time in my life I have spent on video games, I think that this figure will be very high, since I am a big fan. There is an interesting site https://askboosters.com/valorant-boosting/, which provides its services for an additional low fee. They can easily upgrade your account and hero in any rated game.
Wow, I didn't even know that was possible, now I can go and do my business at https://casinosters.com/eu-casinos/ in peace, but before I do I will remember to go to https://penzu.com/p/0293d92e
