Garden Tour Thursday

MARLEY:  Thanks fer comin to my garden tour today!  We can tell Fall is comin.  Its not only cool outside, but some of the plants are statin ta fade back inna the ground.

The butterflys have mostly left.  This one has stuck around.  Maybe it doesnt migrate.
The annual flowers are hangin around too.  I guess they know they wont come back next year, so they will keep bloomin right up ta The End!  Like this marigold...
This is a marigold too even though they both look differnt.
But the signs are here.  This hosta is startin ta lose it leafs.
And the goldenrod stopped bloomin.
The waterlilies are starting ta turn yellow.
We'll miss them all...

But fer now we have treats on the warm patio.  After ya get done rollin around, Ayla has put out roast chick-hen, Milk of Nip, and salmon-flavor crunchies!

Yum! I guess the refreshments will have to compensate for your garden starting to go to sleep for the season.

Yep our flowers are starting to let us know they sense the sun is moving...but until it's too cold we'll keep up with what's blooming. The marigolds sure are pretty.

Our yard is much the same! Mama harvested some of the last of the tomatoes today, and the basil has simply STOPPED growing (too chilly). We've actually had our first freeze but it was a light one.

And mother will NOT stay out with me long because she claims she gets CHILLED. (hrmpf)
