Last Blooms of Summer…

All across the northern part of our great USA, fall has begun to make its appearance.   Here in our part of the world, it’s still a tad warm.   Yes,  we had a couple of cooler days a week or so ago, but that’s long gone and our temps quickly are back into the upper 90’s.   Knowing that fall will eventually come, I quickly snapped a few photos of what surely must be some of the last blooms of summer…enjoy.

    Thanks…I do love my flowers. Not sure about growing passion vine that far north, but you could always grow it in a large pot n then cut back in fall and take insidea garage, barn, etc. I do that with my bougainvilleason n keep them in garage for 4 months, then bring out in March/April. Of course our winter temps stay around 25-30. When it does get cold, i have a small heater that i turn on. Another idea is to place plant in larger black pot, place in ground, then in fall, pull pot up n keep inside. Main thing is not to let roots freeze.
