Saw these at the supermarket and had to get them. The brown spiky one is millet (great for the birds!) and the orange one is celosia (stunning color!).

Things are still blooming here. Here are some pictures over the last month. The chrysanthemums are just starting to bloom now! My annuals are also still in full bloom. Hopefully the frost will hold off a little longer so I can continue to enjoy all the lovely colors.
