A little rain won't stop me! In fact, I was really excited to get out and see my garden on this early fall day with the rain coming down.
I was surprised to see this Foxglove blooming long after the others had faded away. It's very pretty, too bad we won't enjoy these colors next year. We planted a bunch of fox glove in the early summer, some established and some really small plants. Our plan was to have some flowering this year and some next year. I guess we'll see this guy in the 2016 crowd!
The Blueberry bushes have started to change to a brilliant red! I have to dig these up and replant them soon, they're planted too deep in the ground.
My curious kitty Bonzo was peeking at me through the window.
Morning Glory! Bright purple flowers, it climbs (I love anything that climbs) and the leaves are heart shaped! What a pretty vine! I can't wait until it's climbed all over the stone walls of our vegetable garden.
I love the Soloman's Seal that we planted this year in our shade garden. It did not flower because we planted it mid-summer, but the leaves are so pretty on their own that the flowers just like seem like a bonus anyway, next year, we'll see.
Mr. Pine Tree. We love our tall old timers at The Kingdom!
I've planted many climbers throughout our landscape this year and they all seem to be doing okay. These roses were planted in the late Spring. They are a creamy, coral-y, pink-y color that I really like. They finally made it to the arch in the early fall, yay! I hope this gateway will eventually be covered in roses. I just LOVE anything that climbs.
Summer has come to an end. These Helianthus plants are my husband's favorite addition to the garden this year. They took off and were covered with bees through the late summer.
I really like characters in a garden. I'm always on the look out for fun friends to add to the landscape. Mr. Lion is getting old, he looks like he has freckles!
This Limelight Hydrangea was planted in the Fall of 2013. We bought it on sale and we weren't even sure if the plant would make it, but he's pulled through and now he's showing off his beautiful fall colors.
He doesn't mind a little rain.
I love Moss!
We trimmed this rose below it's grafting point by mistake last year, and now we have this white color where there used to be a dark red. I don't mind it so much.
I have this small tree out front of my house. I'm not sure what it is, but it's quite pretty. It is turing a muted cast of fall colors.
I planted these mums during the summer months in a partly sunny location.
