Here's a few pictures of my Cimifuga racemosa that was flowering in my yard at the end of September.  It really is a late flower here in central Canada and this is really the first time that  I've managed to get it to throw up more than one flower stake.  The bees really flocked to these flowers just like honey, although I'm not sure yet if I managed to get any seed.  We've had some light frosts and all the plant has dropped all it's leaves but I haven't yet got around to see if it managed to grow some healthy seed in the mean time.  I'll have to check tomorrow.

I've attached the following pictures to this message, but they don't appear on the preview.  Hopefully they will on the actual post.  If they don't I'm not sure how to proceed.  If anyone whose posted pictures would help I'd certainly appreciate it.  If the pictures show up then I guess I've figured it out.

@ Maggi, thanks for helping me out (or I should say "in") at the new forum.

I ordered some Narcissus from Paul Christian, which are coming into bloom now:
N. albidus zaianicus (its correct name should be N. romieuxii ssp. albidus var. zaianicus?)

Isoplexis canariensis keeps on blooming once the autumn temperatures stay high. Although less colour than in summer
