My early fall garden

When I sit at my desk and look through the window I'm amazed about how many flowers are still blooming in the garden. We've had a fantastic September with lots of sun and almost no rain which has made up for the wet August overhere. Here are some garden photos that I took yesterday:

im going to do up my backyard garden this year Carol - your lovely garden gives me lots of ideas - i love your garden - cant wait to see it in the fall colours soon

Carol,
Oh, the view from your living room to your patio is great!
I love your "fresh flowers" box whith pansies, where did you get it from? I have a green similar box for 6 little pots, made by my husband. You inspired me for a similar decoration.
My garden is already in a kind of fall mood, I already disposed of most of my annuals in order to get free space for new perennials.
Enjoy the sunny Sunday!

Oh, iot is still so beautiful, and looks so fresh in spite of the season. Do you have a free chair for my afternoon tea?

Carol the photography is amazing and uplifting! Sort of hard to get on with the Autumn displays when the garden is so pink and beautiful! I had a difficult time yesterday removing my beautiful summer blossoms from front urns and window box to make way for my fall seasonal displays! I moved everything to the back garden where it is alive with pinks!I've decided to allow "jack frost"
to make the final decision when I will discard
these beauties!Now I must go and take a second look at your garden photos!

Hi Carol, your pics are wonderful, I love the photo with the pansies very much! And the case which you have plant them in.

Carol I can't believe this is your garden at the beginning of October!!! It still looks like mid summer. We have had just horrible weather since August. It just continues to rain and rain and rain. My eden rose has had the same bud on it since early september and at this rate I don't think it will be opening as I am sure frost is not far away. My trees have started to turn colours and all my plants are beginning to die back. I would love to just hop on a plane and spend a day in your garden, it would lift my spirits. That lily (I think it is a stargazer?) is that new or is it an old one blooming for a second time? I've never seen one bloom so late in the season. Thanks for the beautiful pictures it helped to brighten a dreary day in Canada. TWT

Yes very beautiful still! Your so lucky. Here in Canada we`ve had a rainy cold September almost every day. Very much like October usually is. Hopefully this month we get some September weather instead! The plants have enjoyed the rain though.

Hi Carol! Lena sent me here; and I have no idea how I ever missed such a lovely blog. Although my computer is giving me fits at the moment and I was only able to see some of your pics, what I've seen are just beautiful. Your flowers!! Oh my. I think all mine are dead -- hehe. Well, I'm going to be in Bremen, only for a short day, I'm afraid, as the hub has business there. Lena said you had written about some special stores I need to visit. Since my computer is moving very slowly and being tempermental, can you email me?? If you're too busy, no worries!! I'm sure I can sniff a good shop out! ha. my email is rosyshak@aol.com I'll be there one day the week of 9th of October. I'm going to try and go read some of your other posts if my puter will let me! Danke!! xoxo (Forgive me if this posts twice!! grrrr--'bout ready to throw this computer out the window!!)

Oh you do have a lot of colour left in your garden Carol! we are having a nice september too, much better than August,I love those lillies are they "stargazer" if so the fragrance must be outstanding, the little violas are lovely too, I always think they look like tiny faces!

Deb said...

Your pictures are gorgeous, as always, and it is a joy to visit your blog!

Shell said...

I wish the view from my window was even half as beautiful as this! Wonderful pictures of your garden - as always.

Alice said...

Your garden is a credit to you, Carol. I looks so beautiful in all seasons, even in the winter time it's interesting. Everything harmonises so beautifully and there are constant delights around every corner.

I hope you lovely autumn weather continues a while longer so that you and all of us can enjoy your garden some more.

Alice said...

Sorry - I meant 'It looks so beautiful in all seasons ...." I certainly don't!
