Is It Really Autumn?

It's October, but my flower garden thinks it's Spring. 

The azaleas that Paden got me for Mother's Day have been in full bloom for about a month now and the roses are still going strong.  The orange one in the foreground was also a Mother's Day gift from Tom...just a stick and a root ball when I planted it.  The yellow one in the background was one that I bought at a street fair in the Spring.  I know absolutely nothing about roses, but have noticed these two have a different growth habit.  I'm very excited to see what they are like next year when they've have time to grow more.

I've forgotten what these are called, but I grew them from some of my seed-swap seeds.  They were three tiny plants that survived the chicken scratching.  I had a nice little patch of balloon flowers beside them that the hens completely destroyed (grrr!)

I also grew some Zinnia from seed.  They reseeded themselves and this one sprang up in the midst of the small Butterfly Bush.  It's such a pretty color, don't you think?  If the chickens will stay out of there, I should have quite a patch of Zinna next summer.
