Kathleen girl your pictures are so pretty! .. Jays are a bit noisy but you are so right about that flash of colour and activity from them in the garden .. they are entertaining!
Ruby Wedding is gorgeous(I might have to think about that one!) .. the pumpkin and bacopa are gorgeous together.
Yes we tend to join our garden experience with our year's experience together and one seems to help out the other under strain.
My garden brings that to me as well .. even though it is harder to keep up with now, it still leaves me with such an appreciative feeling of nature.
I also hope you have a much better year next season too... nicely calm and relaxed.. all those good things!
Joy : )


More beautiful photos from your amazing gardens! I really love what you wrote in this blog. I can see why you waited until now to winterize - so many beautiful blooms left. I love the Bluejays and love watching them on my feeder. Keep the awesome blogs coming...can't wait for your Christmas blogs.

Stunning photos, as always! I have similar feelings for the Blue Jays. Yesterday, one was still bathing in the birdbath and it was singing such a sweet song. They sing and sqwauk and make so many distinct noises! I LOVE your photo of the Bacopa surround the pumpkin! I've planted Bacopa before and really enjoyed it. Stay warm and safe!


Fall lingered extra long this year, and for that I am ever so grateful. We're finally seeing temps hit the 20's, yet I still see a few flowers out there laughing at the cold. You've just got to love those cold loving flowers like snapdragons and your bacopa. I still have a geranium out the back door that's sheltered enough to still bloom, the crazy thing. If he's going to be that tough, I think I should move him inside for the winter.


The white bacopa and orange pumpkin make a great combination. I envy you the astrantia and the monkshood. There's a climbing variety of monkshood that grows in the NC Botanical Garden and I tried to grow it from seed one year. Complete fail. if the Garden ever sells any plants I should get one immediately -- for blue color and beauty monkshood rivals delphinium.

Ivory is adorable.
