The Fall Garden....Blooms on....

Little Angel with Zinnias & Red Salvia......


The weather in North Texas is perfectly beautiful this week - so very "Fall". Color still blooms on & is so pretty ~ just seems more vivid & vibrant in the bright fall sunshine. Our garden is lovelier than ever & we're enjoying it more than ever because within a month's time it could all be gone ~~Come on a little yard tour with me!

Soft Blue Mist......

Esperanza ~ or Yellow Bells as my mom calls them :-) ......

Zinnias - or Old Maids as my dad calls them :-) ......


Our front porch mini-pond is so serene......

My lovely Katy Road Rose ~ has never had a fall bloom like it's into now......

I love yard tours ~ Think I'll take a little rest & then walk it again ~ it won't be here much longer...


I just started a new garden "room" yesterday & should have it finished tomorrow ~ here is a "sneak peak" of where my little "secret garden" will be - in & among those trees.........I will show you soon :-)


Enjoy your day ~~ xoxoxo

I enjoyed looking at your flowers so much! Your garden is still so colorful. I don't know what happens in North Texas in the Fall. Do you lose all the leaves on the trees? Do you eventually have a frost and lose everything? All thats blooming here are the marigolds. That is it. Oh well, I woulldn't want to garden year round. It would be too exhausting!

Hey Kathy, your flowers are lovely. I too am enjoying this Fall weather.
I read Carol's comment...she says she doesn't know what happens in North Texas in the Fall...I had to giggle....we live here and don't know LOL Every year is a wait and see around these parts. It might be 32 today and 90 tomorrow! Keeps us on our toes that is for sure :)
Have a great day!
