~~~Around the Garden in Fall~~~

I have been busy today putting Summer clothes away, getting the jeans and boots and tops out and cleaning and organizing the garage. While sweeping I noticed some flowers that are comig up from seed and blooming and LOTS of color all around the house. So, I thought I would share some Fall prettiness with you. Is that a word:):) So here we go. This is the front of the house today.
 These little guys are coming up from seed, we have pink ones and...
 pretty purple too. These are coming up UNDER this bush:)
 The new guinea impatiens are blooming again
 and red.
 The begonias are still blooming

and the roses too.

 Even the coleus are blooming. I am so loving this!!
 The bench that was here has been moved to the patio out back. But we have another bench, still at the old house that we now plan to bring over to use here.

 We also got a storm door several weeks ago. It is SO nice to be able to open the front door and have all the light come in the foyer. I also just today, got some more mums so I can redo the copper pot here at the front door.

 These are the HUGE sunflowers that I won as a doorprize at the Italian Feast at our clubhouse last Saturdsy night. It was SUCH a fun evening. I got tons of pictures and might share them if you would be interested????
 The sunflowers are as big as my (wrinkly) hand:):) I see my Mom's hand now.....

 Aren't they such a happy flower!?

 We also remulched all around the house about 2 weeks ago.
We have also airated and reseeded too. The lawn took a beating with all the construction going on out back! Hopefully next Spring it will come back nicely, we hope!
 This side of the house is so bright and colorful, all the zinnias are BIG and full of flowers!

 We have rose bushes all across the back here. You can see the deck being built in this picture. I am HAPPY to report that it is DONE!!! I will share all that very soon. We had a deck, patio and pond installed.
 You can see the silt fence in this shot; they are bulding a house next to us. I am not sure how I feel about that, I am hoping it doesn't mess up my views of the sunsets!

 So there's the tour. Hope you have enjoyed it. The weather is so nice right now, I am enjoying it. However next week we may be stuck in the 50's and that will be kinda COOL for me. But I won't complain, life is good. Thanks for your visit. XO, Pinky

  1. Pinky, your gardens look just beautiful! And I LOVE your new storm door!

  2. Pinky, I love your tours. Your house is so beautiful and your yard looks gorgeous. I can't believe how many flowers are still blooming mid-October! I would love to see pix of Italian night. Nice mani, too, by the way. xo

  3. Pinky, your flowers are beautiful! Ours are still going, too. We just had 4 days of much needed rain; so, I anticipate a new burst of blooms, as well. It will be a while before we get a frost!

  4. Pinky your gardens look beautiful! LOVE that beautiful Fall wreath you have on your door!

  5. What a beautiful home and yard you have.
    I love all your different flowers and


  6. Everything looks so pretty! I love the contrast from the dark mulch with the bright flowers.

  7. Hi! I'm dropping in from Thursday Favorite Things blog hop! What a colorful and pretty fall garden! How fortunate that you have several "second-time" bloomers! We also have recently been doing some fall decorating, but I think the summer flowers are pretty much done for the season! I see you like small decorative flags. I love getting and putting out ones for each season! I absolutely LOVE sunflowers, too! We used to grow them on our bigger property, but really don't have the space for them where we live now.

  8. Pinky your garden looks wonderful and oh my those sunflowers! Thanx for sharing at THT.


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
