Fall in the Garden

We’ve finally gotten cool enough weather that some of the trees are starting to change color. Today I went outside and was surprised at how many of them had started to change.

Here is the last rose of the season. Its just huge and spectacular. I brought it inside so I could enjoy it for a bit.

And here is one of my miniature trees that has done really well.

And my oldest laceleaf Japanese maple.

Of course, some of the flowers enjoy the cooler temperatures, and so they are still blooming a bit.

These zinnias especially seem to like the cooler weather. I can hardly wait to see how my zinnia seeds do next year!

And just before sunset, the colors looked so pretty, I tried to get a couple of views of the garden.

I hope everyone has a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

  1. Hi Debby….your gardens are still quite lovely. Love the big view (the last two photos) showing what you see when you walk outside. The little maple sure is a show stealer. The rose is perfect. Have a great Thanksgiving.

  2. That rose is spectacular! I’m always surprised at how long into the fall even my knockout rose will bloom.

    P.S. I have tomorrow off work to make the pumpkin cake – it haunts me lol!

    • Aargh! I actually forgot about the pumpkin cake!! We are having a different kind of Thanksgiving–going down early and taking my mom out to a restaurant. I will be home on Thanksgiving, but I don’t think I can justify making that cake just for me πŸ™‚ I will have to make it sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas!

  3. That Japanese Maple…GORGEOUS. Holy smokes -it is beautiful!! And that rose looks like it just belongs in that room. πŸ™‚ I love the wide garden shot too – you’ve created your very own sanctuary. Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving! Maybe you could find a recipe for one for that pumpkin cake. πŸ˜‰
