Last flowers?

Veronica last flower

 

Maybe not. Even at this late date hiding here and there among the yellowing grasses and withering stems in the flower gardens are blooms of stitchwort, dandelion, fleabane, aster, yarrow and dandelion. Violas are abundant in the garden and are thriving in the cooler weather. In the woods and meadows all the wild flowers are done, the last of the goldenrods having finished blooming in late September. Today I found this spire of blue veronica flowers on the edge of a garden brightening a gray day. There are clouds gathering in the southwest now as the sun sets. They are the leading edge of stormy weather coming our way that will bring colder temperatures and rain and some snow tonight and tomorrow. I think the flowering season will come to an end at least outdoors.
