Flowers in the Fall

I barely had flowers all summer.
But now that fall is here, I have plenty of them.
Yes, now that fall is upon us...everything is finally lush and green.
My grass is even growing back.

Same here Nita...everything was "cooked" for the summer but now that it is cooler we are getting a last gasp of green and color. Looks pretty in your corner of the world!~Hugs, Patti

I experienced the same thing. My morning glories and nasturtium only started blooming the last few weeks. I hope we get to enjoy them for a little while longer before a hard frost.

Your back yard and flowers look beautiful. Enjoy as long as possible.

My gardens are beautiful right now with roses, mums, blue beard, sedum, nandina, beauty berry, grasses and pansies - this is what I have been waiting for! And green grass - yes!

Enjoy the beauty of your flowers! It seem so strange that yours are now growing and in the Midwest our are now dying, thanks for sharing, Laura Cottage and Broome

I was just thinking of how my 'Summer' flowers are looking good...for the first time since I planted them! Thank you Fall!

Yours look gorgeous!

I'm still cracking up from the last post on Sally (I just read the past three with the dogs)...can't get the visual of you pulling pantyhose out of her butt out of my mind! So funny!

It all looks very lush. Ours is looking better, too.

Shirley said...

We are cutting things down and putting away all garden items. Your garden is looking mighty fine..enjoy all you can.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I know, right!?!? My summer pots have come back like gangbusters, and I don't want to pull them up and plant mums and pansies yet.....

Your garden looks so nice, Nita!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Your summer weather has been brutal. You deserve a nice fall spell~the fountain planting looks so pretty. I love it!

Olive Cooper said...

Pretty Nita. I know our grass is greener and I finally cut it on Thursday.
