SixOnSaturday October 5th. Red.

Baby girl is 2 today and the first frost is on the pumpkin. I still have a lot to do in the vegetable garden but it won’t be happening this weekend. A road trip to Manhattan is planned. My Six this week highlight the colour red.

1. Knockout rose. A grocery store bargain that continues to flower reliably all season long.img_20191004_141655.jpg

2. Zinnia Queen Red Lime is finally starting to bulk up. They are too subtle and wispy for my taste. I’m going back to my old favourite ‘Benary’s Giants’ next year. IMG_20191004_141618

3. Ruby Chard. Pretty as any flower. Intermingled with beets.IMG_20191004_141232

4. Fruit of Cornus Kousa

5. Ilex Verticilata – Winterberry. Deciduous holly loaded with berries this year.IMG_20191004_1411456. Viburnum Trilobum luminous red against a backdrop of still-green maples.

  1. It’s interesting how a flower performs do differently in gardens, your zinnia, in this case. In my garden, the flower heads look like beast & the plants themselves are falling onto the lawn, fighting the tithonia for space. A coupla SoSers’ve said their Queen Red Lime hasn’t produced well, so it must be a fussy plant. Love all the red in your garden, especially the cornus fruit. although that vibernum isn’t half bad, is it? Enjoy your road trip!
