Year of Grace, Day 191. First heleniums

I’ve always thought of heleniums as autumn plants, though I’d been hoping they would bloom earlier. This is the first time I’ve grown them, and I’d sowed them from seeds last year in the spring. I am so so chuffed they’ve finally bloomed. M calls them satellite plants. Well, there is no doubt in my mind now that August is the beginning of autumn, for the heleniums are just coming into their glory. Oh, they are gorgeous! There are some darker ones coming up, and I am all excited about those as well. Please click on each photo for a larger view.
