Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  First, I want to say how amused I was that so many Beins wanted ta kiss my toesies on Tuesday.  Do you know where those toesies have been?  I probaly walk on dead bugs alla time outside and then there is the litterbox...  MOL!

But enough of THAT.

Lets go take a look around the yard.  I warn you, some of it is sad...

The deck Caladiums are starting to suffer from the cool nights.  Very soon, TBT will take them inside and try to save the bulbs. For next year.
The Impatiens are still doing OK.  And we have to admit that we like them better than we thought we would.  Pretty good flowers fer shade.
The Coleus are also stayin nice.  But we think we want more colors next year.  Would Coleus mixed with Impatiens look good?  Mebbe mixed color Coleus would be better.
 Some of the ferns are dyin back...
And the Hostas...
But there are a few ferns what seem ta stay green all year long.  I like those.
An here is pawsatively the LAST butterfly bush flower of the year.  The hummers are gone fer the year, but I really did see one butterfly flitting about yesserday.  It better take off fer the south soon though.
The Autumn Joy Sedums are stayin red.  I hope they last a while.  They are usually the last ta go.
But there still are the Zinnias.  I'm giving them an awardie fer their flowers bein open so long and resisting the coolth.We are thinking all RED next year.  But TBT says it depends on what seeds we already have left over.  Obviously, he's CHEAP.  No sense of PURRFECTION.
An finally, we have one of our numerous Nip plants!  Go ahead an Nom a leaf.  Or roll on it.  We got plenty.

Thanks fer coming along on the Garden Tour this week.

So...  Lets sit on the lawn fer a while and see what Ayla an TBT have arranged fer snacks.  Hmmm, Ham!  Ham cubes, Ham juice with Nip, and some shredded cheeses!  Looks good...
