September Monthly Plant Update

Inspired by Aquarian Soul, I've decided to record the plants I see around me each month. 

It has been a fun first year in Asbury Park, seeing what grows and blooms in our yard and all around us. Some things were a total surprise! I documented many plants on Instagram and in the blog in a casual manner. This coming year, I'd like to keep a closer eye. 

Here are some plants I'm seeing in September:

 Beach Roses are blooming their last blooms. They smell amazing.

 Some of the roses have already turned into huge hips. I might be researching how to forage and use these for something good.

 I took our oxalis out to the porch to enjoy more sun before the cold weather. It was getting very leggy inside.

 My neighbors chicks and hens bloomed weeks earlier than mine. So much so I started to think mine never would. But here they are!

 The morning glories that we gladly share with our neighbors went nuts this month. They are out in full bloom in all manner of colors. We will have tons of seeds to harvest, spread and share this year.

 My husband doesn't like succulents but I'm planning on buying some up after seeing them at Sunset Farms, our favorite local nursery.
