Hi there, I have been enjoying all of these photos, thanks for sharing!

The first 2 are Long Island cactus, 2nd or 3rd year from a small piece my neighbor gave me, & 3rd one is a water lily from this spring.

For me I don't think I planted any new perennials but my Platycodon (balloon flower) that I had planted about five years ago seems to have migrated and reproduced this year underground because now, instead of a small white plant and a small blue plant, I have about four small blue plants and two more huge, tall plants, one white and one blue--about 3' tall. I'm going to have to tie them with twine, they are so tall! It's like having a new plant.

This perennial has been perfect for hot all day sun and even during drought it has thrived. I'm in love with it.
Hey there, thanks for the feedback on your balloon flowers, I planted some this year & am (patiently) waiting to see how they will do (next growing season) where I planted them. I really like them so far I too am glad when they ‘do what they will’ i.e. move to a more conducive place where they can thrive.

Here too, I love the butterflies of all kinds coming to rest here before moving on. The ‘Montauk daisies’ also seem to be a preferred (or maybe late season?) feeding & resting place for the butterflies in my ‘neck of the woods’; they are just beginning to bloom sortof of keeping to the mums ‘scheduling’.

Holding off on any trimming of the perennials until spring time.

Leaves are starting to fall so perennial care is shifting to leaf removal now.

I planted some frostproof gardenias and a limelight hydrangea end of October.

movin2reston: my roses in 7b (Long Island) are still blooming as well. I just pulled some of my annuals this week. I still have dahlias blooming. This is the first week where we have had sustained cold although not freezing. I cannot recall a season where I had growth like this into Thanksgiving.

I had some gorgeous dragon wing begonias that I am bringing indoors and will try to overwinter.

I started seeds for foxglove and daisy in early fall and have so many plants that even if half die in winter there will be many for the garden. Foxglove may be biennial, not sure. Had overnight freeze and nothing died...yet.

Have many iris purchased this summer, potted, waiting to get planted but worries about voles/moles made me buy roll of metal fence to put down under iris to prevent loss to hungry critters. NOW would be the perfect time to get them planted but cleaning house and cooking for family coming for Thanksgiving being done so garden must wait. Hope the weather isn't horrible when project gets going.
