Autumn in my Garden - Honorine Jobert Anemone

Pin It
I used to have a lot more stands of these beautiful white blooms in my garden, but this year I found only two. I don't know if they just aren't as hardy as the pink ones are, or if I've inadvertently pulled them out.

Whatever has happened, I'm going to mark this one to ensure it returns next year.

After several days of sun, it got really hot inland and the fog bank slammed into the coast with such force it rattled the windows.

Not really, but you get the metaphor.  I hope.

Fall is well and truly underway.  Time to do a last(?) mowing of the grass, prune some branches back, fix the path lights, tidy up the greenhouse and the vegetable garden.  I'm going to plant fava bean seeds to winter over and feed the soil.

The sun just came out.  Time to go outside.

That's a nice photo to show the pretty petals. I've admired Anemone Honorine Jobert, but I'm not sure with the late bloom time if they will get much flowering time in my zone before the first frosts.

Beautiful white. I have pink color one.
It will bloom by November in my garden.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I wave my arms and shriek in a manner entirely inappropriate for the elegance of Honorine Jobert.

I've declared more than once that Honorine Jobert is the best flower. Period. No categories or handicaps required. Gorgeous picture.

Wonderful photograph of a glorious flower!
Stopped in to say hello. I'm back to blogging and visiting blogs, after a long break (another one), but this time from a different part of the world. As of a little over a week ago I have moved from San Francisco to a little down in the deep south of Italy, in the region of Puglia.
I've posted some photos on my revived blog.
ciao for now...
