In the garden at home….at last

My beautiful autumn garden, how I love it so. I even spent a couple hours out there, planting, cleaning up a bit, admiring most of all……the plants and the light of fall. Now this is the same light, that when it comes into the house at a low angle, shows all the hideous finger prints on the kitchen cabinets, the dog hair in fluffs on the floor, crumbs on the counters……….well, all that yuck stuff. But in the garden, the warm light of autumn makes golds golder, bronzes bronzer, purples magical, blues so blue….

Am sharing some of this bounty with you reader. Enjoy.

My view from the kitchen sink, miscanthus Gracillimus, Owyhee mountains 30 miles away, slightly smoky skies….

Red ripe apples on the espalier!

Rose quartz rocks control water flow on the fountain.

Kniphofia hiding in the Joe Pye weed, I almost missed it…

The long view of the wildlands!

Happy go lucky rudbeckia…

  1. Wow, what lovely views. Can we pull up some chairs on that back deck and have a glass of wine– or a bowl of Ben and Jerry’s banana split ice cream?

  2. Can you swim in that pool? Or is that the pond? I love your garden, Sweetness. Had no idea it was THAT beautiful.~~Dee

  3. Beautiful garden, beautiful views. Love the purple thingamabob flowers. I have something similar in my garden, the ‘whatchamacallits’!

  4. That’s a million dollar view – wow! Is your Kniphofia ‘Dreaming Maid’? Whatever it is, I really like it. It is reminiscent of a yellow Liatris. It makes a great companion for the Joe Pye. Your last shot reminds me of a painting by Georgia O’Keefe. You live in such a beautiful place and have such a beautiful garden!

    Lovely garden, Sugarplum.

    You all are very generous with your praise and kind words. Come on over and we’ll do a real walk around. Then you can see the bare spots. I painted the picture in the very “best” light for you. Thanks so much.

    Oh Girl you are so lucky (& I know you know it – we gardener’s generally do!) Enjoy, revel and soak up the golden rays. Your garden is beautiful and wild…just like a certain somebody I know!
