Our Early Autumn Garden

                                                               Hello everyone,

                        Our Autumn days have been lovely here and the heavy rain we had a couple of days has given the garden a pick me up. It is so nice to have the grass so lush and green again..
                                                             Our water fountain.

              The annebelle hydrangeas are still giving me pleasure with their beautiful big blooms.

                                            The birdhouse on a shelf on the north veranda.
                                         The sedum Autumn Joy and Annebelle with a burning bush make a nice Autumn combination.
                                       Autumn Joy sedum is so easy to grow and looks good all season long.The bees also are loving it.
                        Martha's Garden is taking on a fall look as the virginia creeper is just starting to turn red..
                                                  Have a seat for awhile and watch the birds.

                                       The Limelight hydrangea has turned a rosy pink now.
                                        A double red hollyhock that I started from seed this year is blooming now.
            The phlox has all pretty much  faded now except for the varigated phlox.
              An early morning shot with the dew on the mirror behind Martha(statue).
                                                  Our sweet angel is still keeping watch.

                                                                          As are these.

                                                             Our old boat by the pond.
Now that I have shown you the garden I better get out and take a stroll through it on this lovely sunny day.

I am joining Show and Tell at My Romantic Home today and also at The Rose Garden in Malevik

Thank you for joining me today.

Have a lovely weekend!

Even in early fall your garden is beautiful and lush. I have found some plants are putting on new blooms and look better than they did in the summer. Enjoy this beautiful day!

It's still on my bucket list to visit your beautiful garden in person! It's more beautiful than some parks I've seen. Happy autumn.

To tell you the truth.. which I always do here.. I simply adore your gardens in late spring/early summer and in the winter.. for some reason these photos from those seasons above, just speak volumes to love, Grace and peace.

Yes.. I'm in a hurry for your seasons to change and I can't wait!

warm hugs,

Cotton Peony

Hi Carolyn,
Love that new birdhouse with the painted rooster, very sweet! I love how the limelights looks this time of year. What a fantastic showy plant they are and the tree standards are fabulous, too. I'm hunting for a 'Little Lime' for a small garden bed. Isn't it hard to believe that it will soon be Thanksgiving! Lol

Your autumn garden IS lovely! Do you know, Carolyn.... I feel so discouraged when I look at my tiny - drought, chicken, mole, Japanese Beetle ridden - garden. I think that I need a good winter to dream and recharge! Bulbs to plant and a new border, still, yet, to dig... sigh. Autumn gardening is an amazing thing. Sowing in faith....

Anyway, as I'm looking at your garden, it is encouraging - especially, when I think of how long you've been working at it all. it gives me a little 'keep going' pep talk!
