Late Summer Garden Blooms

Summer here in Oregon is starting its decline and boy do I feel cheated.  I love a long growing season but alas that is not going to happen for me unless I take up on my threat and really do move to Hawaii......NOT!
The dahlias are ignoring me and blooming like there is no tomorrow.
My favorite....."Tanjo"
.......Oh no.....this is my favorite"Bitsy", it is a water lily type

No, I take that back....this is my favorite and I had to re-order it three years in a row before the grower sent me the correct one. It's a white water lily form called "Bride To Be" and it is just stunning.

......of course I am awful fond of these little red pom's like this one called "Pazazz"
I forgot about this is MeMa's favorite and I usually side with yep this is hands down my favorite called "Boogie Woogie"
.......wait, wait, wait.....I take it all back this is my favorite and the name alone settles it "Hawaii"

And a couple of beauties from the greenhouse........

Vanda "Patchera Delight"

One of the only fragrant orchids in my collection and one that MeMa brought home in her luggage on her first trip to Oahu, its a beautiful Cattalya called "Fuchsia Lips".


  1. You have such a beautiful array of flowers in your garden! Very pretty! Don't pack your bags just yet. Hawaii's had a bad summer as well. Very rainy. =0)

  2. Hehe. I love ALL your flowers, Doc! :)

  3. When we lived in Alaska, Dahlias were among my favorites, and your pictures remind me of why!

    I hope you've had a good weekend!!
