Garden Bounty




   Hello everyone,

With summer coming to a close there
is still lots of beauty to be had in the
garden.

A little garden vignette with
my garden fairy reading her
book among the roses.

                                                                I love these easy care Knock out roses
                                                                as they put on a couple of good shows
                                                                in the season with a few blooms all
                                                                summer.
                                                               


I planted a few dahlias in the garden
for bouquets.

                                                                    Limelight Hydrangeas are loaded with
                                                                    blooms.

We have some grapes growing
in our garden.....a gift from
our son.


                                                                Cosmo's are the only annual that
                                                                I grow in our garden. They are a
                                                                great filler in a new bed and add
                                                                cottage charm right up until a
                                                                hard frost.

Annebelle hydrangeas also have a
long season of interest and are easy
to grow.
                                                   The Strawberry Vanilla Hydrangea
                                                              is covered in blooms still.....love them!

                                                              Well, summer is offically over but the weather
                                                              is still quite summery here and I am loving it!
                                                               However, I do enjoy the beauty of Autumn as
                                                              well...it just takes me a little longer to get into
                                                              the swing of things.

                                                                 One of my favorite days in autumn is coming up
                                                              on Saturday though as it is the annual 70 Mile Coastal
                                                              Yard Sale and the weatherman is promising warm sunshine!

                                                       

                                                                                          Happy Autumn!

                                                                                                   Carolyn

The visual treat of enjoying the labor of a gardner. Always beautiful Carolynl. And I love those strawberry hydrangea. I have never seen them before. I can't wait to see what goodies you find on your garage sale adventure. Wish I could tag along!
Happy Autumn my friend.
