Nearly Fall Color in Boulder

Here's the color from my back yard these days. The impatiens won the 'Amazingly Steady Prolific Bloomer' award for 2008. I found them at an evil gigantic discounter in June, full of color and put them right into the ground. They have maintained the color through the whole droughty summer, including 2 weeks of high 90's.

The rose is one of 3 that I got for Mother's Day from a big grocery corporation. They bloomed well, then rested and now, they are blooming again. The smell is heavenly.
