Hardy Rose Moss

Today in the garden...
...ran the soaker hose in the forest.
...poured the bath water on the asparagus.
...discovered more plants that died in the freeze.  The coleus put on a good face yesterday, but is looking very shabby today.  Ditto for the cosmos.
...ran the mower for the last time.  Put a little Sta-bil in the fuel and parked it for winter.
...collected seeds from the cosmos, millet, zinnias and purple hyacinth bean vine.
... marveled at how nice the rose moss looks.


  1. Don't know if my message went through or not, as is too common lately google is having problems. Anyway very nice photos.

  2. Glad that you got your seeds.

  3. still preparing for ole man winter?

  4. I don't know that I have ever seen this plant in person, but it's lovely.

    Sounds like you have your work cut out for you. We pretty much have a year round growing season, but we do have winter in St. Augustine. The further south you go, the more the chance of frost dissipates.



  5. Been cleaning up and collecting seeds here too and this was the first year I actually had a hyacinth bean grow so I collected the seeds for sure!

  6. Ahhhhh--don't you just hate that first killing freeze???? We haven't had one yet--but it WILL happen... I love Fall --but hate losing our Roses 'til Spring...

    Cold here this week... We've had a fire in the fireplace all week... LOVE it.
