A Little Color

No I'm not with Lucy in the Sky. I'm just being a little colorful today, messing around with Picasa. From the praire garden, Agastache, Yuccs rigida, Adropogon, Perovskia, and Panicum.

GBBD 10.12

It's that time again ladies and gentlemen, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. As many of you know Carol at May Dream Gardens sponsors this popular meme every month. Be there are be square.
Fall is here in south central Kansas which is still recovering from a drought. I've had to squeeze my irrigation amount, do to economics. However, we received 1.5 inches of nitrogen fixed rainfall (that means rain with lighting), and this will be a plus before winter sets in. So lets begin with my garden.
Welcome to Kansas-Rudebeckia hirta, Salvia farinacea and Nasella tenuissiama.
Rosa 'Noare'
Rosa 'Noare' and Aster novi-belgii 'Wood's Blue'
 Linaria purpurea and Aster laevis
Schizachyrium scoparium 'The Blues' and Salvia 'Indigo Spires'
 Rudebeckia hirts 'Denver'.
Front walk-kind of hard to walk but it sure does smell good. Mostly globe basil (volunteer) and Salvia.
 Front Hell Strip-Yucca rigida, Panicum amarum 'Dewey Blue', Andropogon gerardii, Agastache
foeniculum, Vicea, Nasella tenuisiuma, and Nepeta.
View from other direction.
Ascelepias incarnata. A few seed head before I make like a tree and leaf.
