Flower Flaunting Sept 1, 2011

There is a twinge of fall in the air this week, but although some of the flowers are way past their prime, others are hanging in there, and some are finally starting to bloom (some seeds I planted were very slow to germinate!)
The dahlias are getting nicer:
In front of the house the large pot holds coleus, and a red mandevilla vine, new to me this year....
By the front steps, we have 2 urns which did fairly well this year..

Tomatoes are very plentiful...we've been using them every day

I picked some pears at our Son's house this week, just for decoration...

The fall mums are arriving at the supermarket now...I hope this one lasts a month!

That's all for today .
I hope everyone has an enjoyable Labor Day weekend. We have plans...
Tootsie has a wonderful weekly gardening event...check it out..

Christine your dahlia is gorgeous with those colors going through the petals. Lovely. I was wowed by those coleus though. Love those jagged edges. Very pretty. Have a wonderful weekend.

The coleus and mandevilla vine are so pretty together. I wish my tomatoes did as well as yours, too.

So many beautiful photos for FF. Love them all!

I thank you so much for linking in this week. It is an honor to host Friday's Flaunt and meet new friends and visit the regulars (who are like old friends) who share. I am always excited to tour each post and see the different flowers/ projects and garden art that everyone flaunts. It is a pleasure to tour and see all the gorgeous blooms...and I appreciate each and every link and comment! I hope you will link in again soon!

Once again, your flowers are just gorgeous! I love dahlias, they grew bountifully out on the west coast.
