Getting Ready for Cold and Wet

Not really blooming, colorful foliage of Joseph's Coat.
Oh! Look! Up in the left corner just past the Crape Myrtle.
What IS that?

Acidanthera bicolor, or by its new name, Gladiolus callianthus.

I bought the bulbs in the spring and then forgot to timely plant.
They are only hard to 25 degrees. Perhaps the stones will
mediate the temperatures enough that they will survive.
Inexpensive enough to try again next year and plant in time.

Grandma's Yellow Rose, Sunny Knockout and Knockout.
Belinda's Dream is still blooming too, perhaps the sturdiest of all.

Gulf Frits are still about on Lantana.

Skipper on Duranta

Heliconia, my favorite House Plant, outside for a drink and shower.

As the weather cools, everything tender must move inside:

Flaunt your flowers with Tootsie

Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean blogged on Dotty Plants Journal in Southwest Georgia where the weather is getting cooler.
