The Garden's Last Hurrah

Wow, it has been a really long time since I've done a yard post!  This is the time of year when I'm over it.  I'm ready to stop watering, start yanking things out and be done with it.  It's starting to get cold and we're just not spending as much time outside.  So I figured I had better take some pictures before I go on my fall clean-up frenzy.























































Think that'll last ya till next spring?

  2. Beautiful! Your garden looks like early June to me. Did you paint that green looking chair up near the top? If so, what kind of paint did you use? We have some really mangy ones just like that.

  4. Hmmm...doesn't look like yanking time, yet. You still have some gorgeous blooms. But I do know what you mean. As the weather becomes cooler, I'm done with the garden too.

  6. Mindy, You have a beautiful garden! I'd say leave the yanking out just a little longer. Love the zinnias and dahlias especially. Wish I could grow fuschias like yours. We're just heading into Spring Down Under, so the garden is calling us outside. Very soon it will be too hot to be outdoors.

  15. You still have so much beauty in your garden, even at this end of your growing season. I guess you bring in lots of blossoms to enjoy indoors as you trim back your plants.

  16. Wow Rindy Mae - your garden is still full of color and blossoms...gorgeous. Summer is still reflected in your garden, mine sadly, the flowers are gone which is why I posted about the end of summer too. Happy Thursday!
