Patio Part Two


My pots have exploded with the cooler fall temps and lots of sunny days. The vines are turning and now the patio is under a carpet of leaves.




My chickens are of the garden decor type. He watches over me as I garden.


This purple sage doesn't do anything until October and then it explodes and becomes the deepest purple. Love that there are still plants that give a show after the summer season.

So pretty and peaceful, your garden!
I am thinking that the way things are going over here with my chickens, YOUR chicken may even lay an egg first!! Now THAT would be bizarre!!

What a lovely garden you have. Here in eastern Canada we are winding down and putting gardens to bed altho there is still a wee bit of those wonderful fall colours we can enjoy. I am busy planting up bulbs (hoping the squirrels will leave them alone) for spring. Just potted some amaryllis for a Christmas display!

Hi Elaine!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello to me! I love meeting new people - and your blog is so wonderful, I've had a good time looking around! Your patio is so pretty, I love your patio rooster, and the purple sage is so pretty this time of year! I guess it's pretty in the Fall no matter where we live!

Hugs,
Barb

So, so lovely, Elaine. If I loved there, the patio would be pretty, but the rest of the house would be neglected because I would spend all of my time outside! Thanks for sharing your photos of your patio.
