The only flowers in my front garden in Holland, doing fine, are these sedum plants. My other plants are either preparing for winter or just dying.

I am not quite sure what we call that plant here, but beautiful it was - and I enjoyed the bee!

Beautiful shots of the sedum! I love the colors and the bee is nice too.

Maria said...

Thanks for giving me the name of this plant. It was in my mother's bouquet and it was the flower that is still in the vase!
Have a nice week!

Maria said...

Fetthenne, Schafer Mauerpfeffer. I must ask my mother how she names this flower. It impresses me because it looks so unsignificant but it goes so well with other flowers and heightens their beauty!
So long!

It seems Spring is coming!!

Country Girl said...

I like sedum. You've captured it quite nicely, too!

Lovely sedum, Wil. My daughter's plants are in bloom here, and like yours, are visited by bees. Sedum must have good-tasting nectar.

A beautiful arrangement of flowers!
Cheers, Klaus

I like the light on the last photo. The bee helps us see how tiny the flowers really are. Nice light, nice photo!

Sedums are so lovely this time of year. I like to leave the seed heads in my gardens for "winter interest."

Luiz Ramos said...

Great flower shots. Nice colors and bee.

nonizamboni said...

Great shots! The sedum is pretty here too--I always forget about its soft pinks with all the showiness of the summer annuals. Really nice way to start the week!

Great shot. I just love the pink in these flowers.

The Weaver of Grass said...

My sedum is still out too Reader Wil, in my garden here in the UK. For some reason we call it the ice plant. It attracts lots of butterflies too. I still have some roses out as we have had a few sunny days - but it will soon be the last rose of summer. Enjoyed your pictures.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Hi Wil
I see the flower around quite a lot but never knew it's name... ha! I do now... nice touch with the bee..
Tom :O)

Very pretty flowers. Mine are all shutting down for the winter as well. My petunias, however, are a little confused. I planted seeds in late spring and nothing came up. I have just recently gotten 2 plants growing, and the larger one is just now getting blooms on it!

Hildegarde said...

Yes, Sedum is flower pleasure in fall, I also like it very much.

guild-rez said...

Wonderful Sedum pictures.
In my garden Sedum blooms until frost and I don't cut them down before winter.
- Cheers Gisela

Abraham Lincoln said...

Our sedum is blooming but the insects for the most part are no longer here. They either passed on or have flown south for the winter that is coming. Sometimes our sedum is crawling with bees but not this year. Your flowers are just beautiful.

Janice Thomson said...

Beautiful sedum and lovely shots Wil.
I never got to see mine bloom as the deer seem to have a fondness for them too - so a treat to enjoy yours :)
