Last night was the first fall storm...
Full of high winds and power outages,
One of the perks of living down town
with businesses in my backyard,
is we rarely do without power for long
since keeping the businesses going is important to the city...

We have yet to have a hard freeze
all the leaves have been holding tight in the trees
until last night,
they came down in sheets
the pond is full.....
Since the garden is having it's final
curtain call for the year,
I thought we should look around
before it's all gone...
The Beauty Berry
is living up to it's name,
loaded with amazing purple berries...
The Guadalupe Roses are tough
still trying to hold on....
I am tempted to cut all the pretty blooms
and bring them in,
though they only last a day
the change is just too much for them...
My faithful Gertrude Jekyll
has proven what a tough lady she is!
I am amazed to be lucky enough to enjoy her beauty
in mid November!
The Sweet Peas are also confused
and don't seem to know summer is long gone,
I am not complaining, not one bit!
Fever Fews perky white flowers seem more suited
for a bright summery day...
The Potato Vines are dwindling
and my garden Cupid's cover is fading
he can be seen peering through the lattice once again...
Pansys are enjoying the cool weather
and are a year round staple...
Whoever thought pansy was a term for something weak
was sadly mistaken
they so tough...
A strange sight
is a very late strawberry growing
beside my mini pumpkin...
Yes... The final curtain call...
Snow is in the weekend forecast!
I am joining...
A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday
Thanks for strolling with me!
