A Walk in the Garden

Teddy is on the hunt. Bad kitty smells are everywhere.


Following the scent.


There she goes down over the hill.


The Beauty Berry Bushes are turning purple.


The Oakleaf Hydrangeas are really dry now and I love the sound of them when the breeze blows.


A Teddy grin.


Maybe she has sushi on her mind.


No leaves falling on the lower patio yet.


That will change soon though. In a few weeks it will be covered in leaves.


The mums are blooming.


Deadheading them is quite a job though.


My roses are still blooming. I think I have a micro climate in my lower garden.


Roses blooming everywhere in the Fall seems strange.


Click for a better look but the Fall Flowering Clematis is flowering on the gazebo.


And the Impatiens are doing better than ever in the stream. You can see Irises coming up again too.


It always makes me happy to see who awaits my return from the lower gardens.


Oh hi mama!


Hi my sweet puppy....I am back.


The gardens are still looking lush thanks to recent rains.

while teddy guards the entry to the lower gardens, no trespassing kitty would be so foolish as to appear!

Your gardens are beautiful. Stop trying to get the leafs to fall. It will be winter to soon as it is.

Teddy is so pretty with her new eye lift.

Love your gardens, both upper and lower. It's so nice to be able to see Teddy's happy face, now. And, I'm sure she's happy, too.

Late-blooming roses are the most beautiful and the most welcome.

Everything looks lovely in your gardens. Loved Teddy's sweet expressions. And I just had to chuckle over the sushi remark. Very funny.

Teddy's grin is precious: can't wait to see her frolicking in the Autumn leaves!My roses are blooming for a second time now too.Your garden's flora and amenities must be inviting to both mortals and elementals as well!Enjoy the change of seasons, as the wheel turns.
