Around The Garden....

Waiting patiently for porch visitors.


The seasons are changing fast, the beautiful Clematis blooms are no more....just the canes remain, and the promise of new growth next season.




Rambling around my favorite antique shop, I came across this wonderful old step back cupboard.
If only I could find the space to display it ...



My daughter (the bargain hunter) bought me a grand old piece of wrought iron for the garden.
It needs a little repair here and there, but will be perfect for rambling vines.


The Carolina Wrens have once again nested in the birdhouse of their choice.

The Balloon Flowers are still trying hard


The Morning Glory here today gone tomorrow.

Oh---can't you find room for that cupboard???? I love it ---and remember them from my childhood. That clock would be a treasure for me...

Love your flowers... The Morning Glory is pretty but leaves too quickly. Our Clematis is about all gone also. Is Autumn coming????? I hope!

I absolutely love your garden pictures. How peaceful! It is currently 58 degrees in my wonderful city. A bitter reminder that fall is quickly approaching! Seems like there wasn't much summer though.

Interesting pics, especially the wrought iron fence panel. Lots of possibilities there.
Blessings, Star

You have a very inviting and lovely home and garden. I enjoy "visiting". I can't wait to see how you'll display your wrought iron fence! As the days shorten, the plants are slowing down, too. Signs of fall coming on.
