Autumn Flowers: What’s Blooming in the Yard Today?

It’s autumn in the Shenandoah Valley and the fall flowers are blooming in these days before cold weather descends. A sure sign of autumn is when the mums begin blooming, and mine are popping out all over the place.

The purplish-blue flowers are hostas.

This is a spring bloomer so not sure why it’s popped out again but it’s pretty.

Berries are plentiful and, though I don’t know what this neat tree is, the berries are a pretty cranberry color.

The sedum is stunning this year with its abundant pink-purple blooms.

Some renegade coreopsis blooms from this summer pleaser.

I can’t remember the purple flowers — maybe Ageratum?

The flowers were covered with bees, and this little fella’s pollen sacs were full. iPhone pic … not very clear.

The coneflowers bloomed during summer but this renegade popped up over the weekend.
