  1. Always look forward to the "tours".---The picture with the birdbath (#4) in particular looks very "still"--as if waiting for the change we all know is coming. We've had an extended summer this year but I know that old man winter isn't far behind.......

  2. You sure have a lot of containers lined up there and looks like you are all ready for Winter to hit your area. Mine is done also.

  3. You're further ahead than I am! I need to get busy and clean up for winter. I did plant pansies, however -- so I suppose that counts! And I do need to bring in plants -- Columbus Day!

  4. I always enjoy your garden tour. We have recently added a few shrubs, trees to our property. I wish I could "fast forward" and see how they will look!!!

  5. Wow, you have cleaned up the gardens already. I'm in a funk about garden clean up. It just seemed like the summer has passed by too fast this year. It's barely gotten started and here it is only a few days away from the first frost date. The cold wet Spring and the cool nights during the summer put everything way behind. The first tomato was a good three weeks behind last year and the green peppers are just now starting to really produce. I kind of feel just a little robbed this year.

    Oh, well, such is life with gardening. There's always next year. Let the garden clean up begin. :0)

    Have a great fall day outside in the garden.

  6. Hi There, I always enjoy taking the yard tour each month at your home... Each month looks different from the previous one. Seems as if you are getting ready for WINTER in your area... Are you expecting a cold one this year?


  7. I reallly enjoy these tours of your yard. Oct. brings a lot of work and it looks like you have started.
    Have a nice day...Balisha

  8. Things look like they're winding down for this season, as they are here at home in our yard as well. There are still flowers that are blooming here, but it won't be long before they're past as well. We do have some new lettuce and broccoli as well as kale coming up. I want to make lots of kale soup to can this year. My Christmas cacti will need to be brought in soon, as well as my Bay leaf. Have a wonderful week.

  9. That salvia just keeps working doesn't it!! That HAS to be one of the most valuable plants ever!!

  10. That forest is massive! Do you ever get lost in there? :o)
