Autumn Joy Sedum in our Yard --September 12, 2015

Hello Fellow Bloggers,   I just HAVE to share some of our crop of AUTUMN JOY SEDUM in our yard now... George's Daddy gave us these beauties several years ago --and I love them.   This has been one of the prettiest years we have had yet with these colorful FALL perennials.  And even though they say that these plants love the sun,  I have them in various places ---and some are definitely in the shade.. They are ALL doing well.

IF you want something that is hardy,  takes almost no care at all,  is resistant when it comes to most diseases,  is deer- proof----and one that gives a lot of color to your yard in the Fall----this one is what you want...

The neat thing about these little plants is that they begin one color ---and gradually change  colors as we go deeper and deeper into Autumn... They start out a very pale pinkish color (with almost a  very light bluish tint) ---and then gradually turn bright pink... Then ---the pink changes to a deep reddish color ---and ends with a rust-colored look (perfect for late Fall).

We have Sedum in 3-4 places in our yard ---and all of it is thriving and blooming right now.... Oh how I love these little plants!!!!   If you want more information about Autumn Joy Sedum,  you can 'google' it.. Here's one link I found,  so you can click HERE.

Enjoy our pictures.  I love Fall ---and our weather this weekend has been incredible.  The leaves are coming down (although we don't have any color much when it comes to leaves on our big trees).  BUT--we are having some signs of Fall (such as Burning Bushes turning red,  lots of Fall Wildflowers blooming, etc.)...  And this cooler weather this weekend will HELP.

Besides some Vinca that we planted (to replace the Pansies),  our Canna Lilies --and our gorgeous Roses----there isn't much else blooming here right now... Things are beginning to die out in anticipation of the upcoming Winter.

Be sure to click on the pictures for enlargements!

Some of our Autumn Joy Sedums are in our English Ivy/Vinca Minor (Periwinkle) bed.  It's nice to add color to all of that green.

These Autumn Joy Sedum plants are along our sidewalk leading from the garage around to the deck. 

Here's another view of the Autumn Joy Sedum plants (along with Hostas --which are ending their lives now)---along the side of our home.

Here's one plant along the side of the house... Isn't it pretty?

Here's a close-up of one of our Autumn Joy Sedum blooms.  You can see how it is beginning to get darker in certain places. 

Finally,  here is one more look at some of the blooms in our Ivy Bed.
Hope all of you are doing well... We are fine ---and trying to get back into the 'scheme of things' after our big trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone.  Maybe --one of these days---I'll get back to blogging on a more regular basis...

Hugs to all,
