Just a taste of what things are looking like in my neck of the woods or shall I say plains?
Our world is turning golden. This shot is one of our bean fields looking toward our place with the tall silo.
This is looking from the other direction. To the right is a small portion of the pasture which is quite hilly.
A pot of exotic impatiens:
A rather gaudy container combo, but I like it.
A few from the potager:
Earlier there was talk of herbs. I love the basils for their ornamental appeal and they smell good too.
Here you get a glimpse of the playhouse in the background. The secret garden is located behind the blue spruces.
The butterfly garden in its fall colors:
The tropical area:
We went to a rock shop on vacation and I got a few things that I thought would be fun in the garden. All fairy gardens need purple sparkly stepping stones and pink boulders.
I had found this nest under a tree and put it in the Secret Garden. I thought these eggs were perfect.
The first cardoon bloom. This seems to be the plant of interest to garden visitors this year.
Finally the patio area. The trellises were new this year and I planted purple hyacinth beans. Apparently its too shady for them. I'm thinking clematis. This wall of the house was just too big and white.
