Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day ~ October, 2011


Haunting my October Garden...


Rising From the Dead New Columbines.


Ghostly White David Phlox.


Blood Red Crab Apples.


Probably Poisonous Euphorbia.


Badly Bewitched Blanket Flowers.
 
Plus! 
One scratchy Black Cat.

For more serious Blogger Bloom Day tours, pay a visit to Carol at May Dream Gardens.

And, Happy [early] Halloween!

I love that euphorbia - mine was that colour in August. I'm really surprised to see columbines in flower in the garden at this time of year.

Ooh, zombie columbines are perfect this time of year, as it your black owl-cat. :)

Fun. At first I thought I saw a dragon flying in the night sky.....either way, if I ever saw that, I think I'd $#%# myself:)

Undead columbines! How awesome! I adore the euphorbia, too. Happy GBBD. :)

Rose said...

Thanks for the Halloween treats, Kate! Love all your spooky blooms, including Kitty who looks like the perfect garden companion. Happy Bloom Day and a very Happy Birthday!

Euphorbias are lovely indeed

Just found your blog. We moved into Jeremy Ranch last month and my husband wants to turn me into a gardener. When I insisted I kill stuff that is SUPPOSED to grow, let alone all the stuff that will have a hard time at this altitude, he sent me your blog as proof that there are people who successfully grow lots of stuff here.
I'll be checking back and hopefully some of your green thumb will rub off onto my black one.

Hi Kate. I cannot believe your Columbines are blooming again. Those red Crab apples look so pretty on the tree.
I love your witch flying across the moon. LOL! Happy Halloween to you too.

Very clever! Happy Bloom Day!

Kate/High Altitude Gardening said...

Thanks, Everyone and Happy Bloom Day! (I didn't have much to show in the way of flowers so decided to celebrate Halloween, instead. :)

Welcome to PC, Stacy!
I will happily answer any questions you might have. It's very easy to grow a pretty garden up here. I can share seeds with you, as well. Thanks for the note!

Nice decorations!!!

Ayana said...

Loving these. Really beautiful photos :)

Snowcatcher said...

I think I like your fall color a little better than mine! Too bad it all doesn't last a little longer...

Melanie said...

What fun. I love that your columbine is blooming again!
