My World: The Second Time Around

South Sea Daylily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. October 2, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

We’re being threatened with freezing temperatures over the weekend, but in the meantime we’re enjoying some of our flowers that are blooming for the second time this year.  We have daylilies and irises that bloom in both Spring and Autumn.

Our South Sea daylily (pictured above) started blooming again in early October.

Hemstitched Iris, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. October 23, 2010.

We currently  have two irises in bloom.  Hemstitched (I have no idea where that name came from) started blooming again about ten days ago.

Floor Show Iris, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. October 27, 2010.

The other blooming iris is Floor Show.  I’m guessing that it got that name because it is quite showy.

Most of our roses are continuing to bloom as well.  You are welcome to stop by and enjoy the flowers in our yard, but it looks as if you need to get here before the weekend.

    hemstitched, now that one is about the oddest of all your flowers names. lovely flowers and I like that last photo a lot.

  5. Susie Says:

    I can’t believe you have these bloomers right now. How nice to see them this time of the year.

  6. NCMountainwoman Says:

    Those late bloomers give us a treat, don’t they? But a bit of sadness as well because we know it’s not their time and the blooms will be short-lived.

  7. Sylvia Kirkwood Says:

    Ah, love the late bloomers, too, but as others have written, their time is limited and the cold is on its way!! These are so lovely, George, thank you for sharing the beauty! Hope your week is off to a great start! Stay warm!

    Irises in the fall? What a wonderful idea!!!
    Now that my hands have recovered from my fall three weeks ago (I ended up scraping all the layers of skin off the heels of both hands), I can get to work, putting the garden to bed.

    It’s nice that you can still enjoy the flowers. Frost around here this morning.

  16. MaryBeth Says:

    Aren’t plants so good to us. My containers are still blooming and my Ganaia (one of my favorites) is blooming again today. Only blooms when the sun is out so you know what is happening here today. Love it! MB

  17. Kathy Says:

    Well, it’s happened. We had a frost last night which took out pretty much everything. Time to clean up and get ready for Christmas decorations.

    Beautiful flowers. They are colorful and lovely.
