What's Blooming In Autumn

Rock purslanes are blooming profusely.  They're edible - one of the plants Henry David Thoreau ate at Walden Pond.  You can cut a branch off one of these and stick it in right into the ground and it will grow.

The perennial asters are going strong - these have been blooming nonstop all year and self sow.

Yes, those are paperwhite narcissus, strangely, blooming months and months ahead of time.  And below, grown more for the soft gray foliage than the blossoms, is a licorice plant, which will spread well but not so densely that bulbs cannot grow up and through.

How odd that those narcissi should be blooming at this time of the year GW
