Loving your orange and pinks Kathleen. Oh I hope you do not get that nasty white stuff yet.


I almost forgot. Not to worry about the red delphinium seeds. They could very likely be sterile. Thanks for trying though I really appreciate it.

It's a good thing your 'Autumn Brilliance' got a head start on its autumn change, so you could enjoy the colour before the brown stage.

Kudos to the optimistic petunia, naively flowering as if it's spring.

It's always fun to have plans for the garden to work on, like your fairy farden. It gives you something to plan and anticpate over the winter.

Your Halloween cat display is very life-like.


Your garden is so magical no matter what, Kathleen. Shouldn't Ornamental Kale do just fine in the cold? I planted some this year, so I hope so. Your weather sounds exactly like ours--except for the snow!! Thankfully, ours is just a cold, windy rain...well, maybe snow would be better. (Did I just say that?)


Your Autumn colors are divine. Yesterday we had snow... but hey! Not so bad. It provided a great photo op for the few remaining blooms to strut their stuff.


Hi Kathleen! I saw snow in Colorado on the news this morning and thought of you. Hope it stays away from you for awhile still. I haven't been blog reading for awhile but had to look through some of your last posts and see your pretty flowers. I feel like I've been so busy with kids I didn't really get to enjoy my garden the last month or so.

Envious of your Serviceberry, love its spring blooms as well.
Hard to think snow is on the horizon for so many....yikes.


Your serviceberry is truly brilliant! The wild ones we have here usually get leaf spot and so don't color that well, although some years they do turn a bronzy yellow.

What are the woody plants in your front garden?
