The Autumn Garden

Welcome friends
With the temps still a bit warm,
my garden is blooming and giving a pretty show
for the last of the season.

This wreath greets me when I walk to the side yard and potting bench.

Pretty Purslane is still blooming each day when the sun shines.

One more hydrangea bloom pretty in pink.

Mums blooming with fall color.

In my Meditation Garden
I replaced the flowers on the garden chair with mums.

Ivy has grown beautiful this summer and my potting bench is
wrapped in green.

Pansies are just beginning to give a pretty show for fall.

My frog is still enjoying his spot on the red bike
and mums replace the summer blooms.

More mums among the ivy filled with buds soon to open.

Summer flowers and begonias not ready to end their time in the garden.

Lantana giving a fall blooming.

This bush is called Texas Bush Rose.
I've never seen a rose per say on it, but it's huge vines produce a stalk like flower.

And my garden must have a garden house for the birds to enjoy.

Here is a pretty fall bloom on the purple potato vine.
These are going strong and loaded with flowers similar to a trumpet vine or morning glory.

Warm afternoons will find me enjoying
some time here for tea.

Thank you for stopping by.
I always enjoy your visits and thank you for your comments.

I'm working on a major reno
of two bathrooms.
It's a bit busy here at Rose Garden Cottage
but I'll be back to share more of my projects next week.
Blessings to you all!
