Early Autumn in the Garden...

A pretty Autumn day
a perfect time to stroll the garden...

(click photos to enlarge)

My little white birdhouse,
sitting among the Anemones...


A pot of fall Mums
waiting to be planted,
an iron butterfly flutters by :-)


The Lace Cap Hydrangeas outside the dining room window..


A Pacific Tree Frog hiding in the Hydrangea
hurries to get away....


The Beauty Berries
are turning vivid purple...


My garden rabbit
guards the last Foxglove bloom...


The blooms of the Sedum
 announce Falls arrival...


The Delphinium welcome the cool weather
and bloom in all their glory...


The Sweetness Rose
sends out a late bloom...


My trusty Gertrude Jekyll
is still
a lady of great beauty...

I am joining...

Pretty flowers! My hydrangeas are to the crisp stage, but lots of asters and mums and roses still going strong!

The Tablescaper said...

Such a beautiful garden. I can't believe you have so much still going on in your garden. Mine is all a bit burnt out. What a lovely way to enjoy fall.

Thanks so much for being a part of Seasonal Sundays!
