The frost isn't on the pumpkin. . . yet!
Apparently we will wake up to a far reaching arctic blast.
In watching the news reports, I know that it won't be nearly as harsh for us as it is for many to the north and west of us.
What I do know is that the countdown is on until the frost is on the pumpkin and the flowers too.
So, today, on this mild autumn day, I invite you to stroll with me through the autumn garden.
Although there are many leaves carpeting the lawn,
the trees are still sporting their autumn wardrobe.
I think the colors coordinate so well with the crystal clear blue sky.
Yellow with a hint of blue. Yes please!!
Orange tipped leaves?
The new landscaping around the pond provides interesting texture in the form of ferns and grasses. I love that pink muhly grass. It looks a bit like a pink cloud. The little Japanese Maples are also a nice contrast to the greens that are so prominent in the garden.
New camellia bushes are loaded with big plump buds.
This one is looking rather promising as it begins to open.
Encore Azaleas are providing a nice pop of color.
Until this year our azaleas had been limited to the spring blooming varieties. I've been pleased with the performance of this encore variety. Now we get to enjoy them for three seasons instead of just one.
It probably comes as no surprise that I would pair up yellow pansies with a blue flowerpot. :-).
Well, I could continue on and on with garden wandering, but I don't want to bore you. Instead, I offer you the last rose of the season. In this month of giving thanks, I wish to thank you ever so much for your visits and your friendship and your kindness.
It means so much to me.
No matter what you may be facing in life right now,
I wish you peace and contentment.
