Hello Autumn!



I was hoping the Boston Ivy would have grown over this wall by now...


Whether I am prepared for it or not, Autumn has arrived and I am coming to terms with the fact that I will not complete the gardens until next year.
Hello Autumn!  It really is nice to see you again! I look forward to your melodious winds and your leaves dancing in circles around my feet, to pumpkin patches and apple orchards...We have reluctantly waved goodbye to flocks of birds and bid them farewell until Spring.  Our perennials have grown weary of waking so early each day.  They need their rest, too.  Our long walks are becoming a bit shorter each day. Goodbye, Summer, dear friend.  Thank you for the memories!
Hello Autumn...shall we dance?

  1. What a beautiful post! Like you we're saying good-bye to summer and putting our gardens to bed for their long winters nap.

  2. I love fall too. I do miss the rich leaves colour of Canada. In Poland the colours are more golden and then turn into gray as the time passes. I miss the reds and the oranges and the abundance of pumpkins.

  3. Ms. D. It takes ivy a couple of years and then it will really take off. Also I know what you mean about fall, while it is beautiful one can not help but think that winter is coming and the garden mostly goes to sleep. And yes, it needs to rest as well. I hope to see you soon. Richard from my old Historic House.

  4. Even though our temps are still up over 100 degrees I'm feeling an Autumn Vibe... it's the reverse here my Friend, I look forward to Autumn so that its FINALLY cool enough to DO my yardwork & gardening properly without dying of heat stroke! *winks* I've got a daunting task ahead of me gardening & sprucing up our acre, it looks like some overgrown Secret Desert Garden right about now... and not in a good way! *winks* I just know by next year your Dream Garden will be transforming into the Vision that you have for it.
