Early Autumn Garden Tour

                                                                     Hello everyone,

                                            Well, it is officially autumn here now and we
                                            are enjoying these beautiful warm sunny days.
                                            I see a few trees are starting to take on their
                                            autumn hues but it will be a couple of weeks
                                            before the real show begins.
                                                      Our garden is showing signs of decline but
                                                      if you don't look too close there is still lots
                                                      of beauty to enjoy.
                                                   There are lots of different hydrangeas in
                                                   full bloom and they will continue to bloom
                                                   until we get a heavy frost.

                                                                   There is still lots of color around
                                                                   the new arbor that my husband built
                                                                   last year.
                                                                The south side of our home.


                                                                      Evening light.
                                                                   I love the color of this hydrangea.

                                                               Unique hydrangea has taken on it's
                                                               autumn hues.
                                                          This Jackmani clematis is still
                                                          putting on a show while the others
                                                          have passed.....this one gets more shade.
                                                                    Annabelle hydrangea on the left and
                                                                     white phlox on the right.This year I
                                                                     enjoyed lots of red geraniums.
As you can see the main show in our
garden is phlox and hydrangeas.
                                                        We enjoy ending our garden tour with a stroll
                                                        around the pond.
                                              Lastly, I picked a bouquet of some of the
                                                        different colors of hydrangeas blooming
                                                        in the garden now.

                                                                      Wishing you a happy day!

It looks so gorgeous there in the longer shadows of light across the gardens. I love the coloured hydrangeas in the last photo. Beautiful photos of your gardens. Happy Fall to you.

Absolutely gorgeous views, as always, Carolyn! Thank you for sharing your wonderful creation. It's always a treat to see.

Susan said...

Oh Carolyn. The lingering days of summer, now autumn, are so bittersweet. Soon the gardens will be white with frost. But in the meantime, we must just take one moment at a time and enjoy the beauty! Susan

Hello Carolyn

Everythime I visit your garden (just virtually...) I'am astonished how different the seasons seem to be. Your Hortensias are still flowering while here in middle-europe everything becomes already brown and ugly

Thank you very much for the tour :-)

Grüess Pascale

Still breathtakingly lovely! Your post makes me want to plant hydrangeas, even though the ones I've planted in the past have not done very well. Perhaps I'll try some different kinds.... Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos and gardens! -Beth

Your house & garden are so beautiful. I love your hydrangeas. When I pick mine they seem to wilt very quickly, whats your secret to making them last.
