Anemone japonica – Friendly fall bloomer

Who wouldn’t like to be greeted by a garden ambassador, the japanese anemone!? The flowers sway in the wind, high atop the foliage. It looks as if they are waving hello to me each time I peruse my garden. They never fail to bring a smile to my face.

This is a long blooming perennial for sun to part shade. A must for the fall garden. My white Anemone japonica is still blooming today.

Wilton Flower Show – Timeless Gatherings

Interested in seeing plants that will still be blooming in October? If yes,  stop by the Wilton Garden Club Flower show  “Timeless Gatherings” at the Wilton Historical Society, Wilton, CT.   (224 Danbury Road).  October 9-10, 2014.

An amazing collection of dahlias, evergreens, vegetables, herbs, perennials, tabletop,  floral designs, miniatures, and photography is on display.

This is a wonderful opportunity to tour the Historical Society building.  The show is displayed throughout.  It is interesting to see the beehive oven inside the fireplace used for cooking by the early colonists.
