Happy Fall, y'all!
I thought I would take a picture of the backyard before it loses all it's leaves. We still have some flowers coming up. I love the orange roses below. I've had them for a few years now.
As you can see, the sprinklers were going while I was taking pictures.
I took some panoramic photos too.
The morning glories showing off in the morning.
My potting bench is heavily used. I just potted a Christmas cactus that I moved on the porch.
Even the vegetable garden is still doing great except for the tomatoes. Honeysuckles are still blooming too.
There is the Christmas cactus on the table now. See the papaya next to it on the deck floor? I hope I can keep it alive over the winter.
I replaced the outdoor pillows from blue to black with orange and green. Looking more fall-ish now.
The gazebo covered with orange trumpet vines. There are only a few flowers right now but it fills out in the spring. I love this vine cause it does not go away in the winter.
The arbor covered with confederate jasmines. Again, no flowers right now but it is full of small white fragrant flowers in the spring. I like this one too cause it also thrives during winter time.
My friend and I are still cleaning the secret garden but it is looking better and better everyday.
Looking down from the deck into the secret garden.
The calmundin plant is still giving me my citrus fruits.
I had a luncheon with friends a few days ago. This was my centerpiece and I just left it there. Maybe I will post the tablescape next week. I have to post a harvest one for this week.
I love the dragonfly particularly the blue eyes! I also like these stone candle holders. I bought them from another vendor in the store, very cheap, just can't remember exactly how much but maybe around $3.
This crown of thorns always has yellow flowers blooming. My friend Nit, who moved to Alaska, gave it to me before they moved. I love it!
Thanks for stopping by.
