If this is fall, I’ll take it, weird or not

Normally fall or autumn is my least favourite season as all the plants in my gardens start to die off in preparation for the winter ahead.  The calendar says September 21st  was the first day of fall or autumn, but Mother Nature is displaying something quite different this year. We have had the most beautiful summer-like weather lately here in Ottawa, more summer-like than June, July, and August.

The gardens I work in are all confused.  Many perennials have rebloomed (roses, clematis, and weigelia)…

 

and others that usually look unsightly around this time of year (peonies and bleeding hearts) are still green and lush.   Coneflowers have been in bloom all summer and continue to look great.  The monarch butterflies are loving the lasting blossoms…

Is September the new July?  If this is fall, I’ll take it, weird or not!
