I love this fall (summer like) weather we are having here in Ottawa. We have had nicer weather after September than throughout June, July or August combined. Many of the perennials in my own and my GARDENS4U clients’ zone 4 to 5 gardens are still in bloom even though the calendar says October. The ornamental grasses are usually still nice this time of year. In addition to them though, I have numerous roses, lavender and several clematis reblooming. Simply beautiful!
I cannot ever remember a clematis reblooming in October as this beautiful pale purple one has.
The thermometer does not feel like it, nor do my gardens do not look like October!
