The last few months of unseasonal heat, brought my garden a late flush of summer blooms. It’s been hot; often feeling more like summer in the lower mainland than fall, causing all sorts of confusion in the garden. Many plants that should be past their prime have undergone resurgence in recent weeks. Roses in particular did well, re-blooming straight through fall. Now with the weather cooling and the threat of frost fast approaching, it’s time to bring any lingering summer flowers into my home to enjoy.

Itea virginica Virginia sweetspire is a lovely shrub for adding a different texture to a landscape.
