Well you are ahead of the ballgame by getting everything ready. Awesome!! The plants in your garden still look unfazed by the ending of summer. I love your term 'liquid sunshine'. So splendid. I'm wondering if your clivia will bloom again this winter? I am hoping mine blooms as it never has. sigh. Happy fall to you!


I agree--I'm trying to grab every moment I have to capture shots of the green, growing things and the remaining blooms. Every one of your photos is magical! That rocker looks so inviting!


I've been grabbing my camera too, thinking that these will be the last flowers. Your anemones make me envious ~ mine put on a good show the first year and since then black blister beetles have devoured them. The bright golden hues of the viburnum do look like liquid sunshine!


I like to think the garden is just going to Sleep for the long winter. YOu caught my eye with the hummingbird trumpet. I love hummers in my garden and like to add things they will enjoy. Thanks for the pics...


Hi Kathleen, All that remains is acceptance. I love that sentence and sentiment. You are way more organized than me. Nothing has been brought in. No bulbs are planted. The fountain is not winterized...Gosh, I could write a to-do list based on your accomplishments! I better get my act in gear!


Beautiful photos of the anemones. Our weather has been unseasonably warm here almost all of October, so I've been out with the camera 13 days so far this month!
