My Autumn Flower Garden

As the Autumn days are getting shorter and shorter, my flower garden is getting skimpier and skimpier.  Actually as I am writing this post, some of the flowers displayed here already have fallen victim to the frost we had couple of days ago.  I covered up the Canna Lily, so I still can enjoy their gorgeous blooms for a while, and the Hardy Mums will last until a real deep frost, so hopefully that will not happen until mid December.

Below is my selection of Hardy Mums I planted this year, since last year’s plants were not hardy enough to survive the winter, with the exception of the Yellow and Buttercream Mums.

My Late Summer Flower Garden

My most favorite season is Spring, but Summer and early Autumn are next on my list.

I love the beauty of flowering plants, and wish they would last forever.  However, the hot weather and the upcoming Autumn season is already marking its presence in my summer garden.

Most of my vegetable plants are done for the season, except tomatoes, so I am hoping that my second try with seeding cucumbers, dill, parsley and red beets will be successful before the frost gets here.  I will keep you posted, as this is my first time ever trying to extend the growing season of these veggies and herbs.

Farewell To My Summer Garden

Summer has been technically over several weeks ago, but in my garden, summer is just coming to an end.

Fewer flowers are opening up, more and more plants are drying off, and my vegetable garden is not producing new crops…just letting the remaining ones to complete its cycle.

We had few very cold nights already, but today was a gorgeous day; so with the help of my camera, I captured the remaining beauties in my garden.

My May Flower Garden

We did not have many April showers to bring May flowers, but the May showers are doing its job a little too much already.

The sun finally peeked out, giving me a chance to take some shots of my gorgeous May blooms.
