Autumn Around The Yard

We still have plenty of flowers to enjoy in the Fall here like hydrangea.
A sedum that has become quite vibrant with color!
One of our clearance buys, echinacea, is still budding. I love the look of its buds before flowering.
Another $4 clearance purchase was lobelia (aka Fan Scarlet). This was supposed to be all red but much to our surprise after we planted it we are seeing pink on the same plant!
Its flowers can be a little messy looking but when they are perfect, they remind me of an orchid.
Our azaleas are ancient shrubs with flowers hanging on. I have given them a little TLC cleaning them up and will prune them some in the spring in hopes of making them flower well!
Here is one of the hostas we moved to the back from the front of the house. Its leaves were cut before moving and this is all new growth. It looks like complete success in giving them a happier home!
I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse of our fall pretties! Thank you for stopping by. ~Val

  2. Lovely flowers in the garden! we have only a few hanging on at this point - most of the color in the yard are the leaves starting to turn. Good idea to prune it will help the azaleas - we have them in our yard and they are hearty. We pruned them, dug them up and moved them, the kids have trampled them .... and they still look wonderful.

  5. It is so nice to still have some flowers blooming.
    I still have quite a few blooming too, but it sounds like we may have our first significant frost tomorrow night, so we'll see what happens.
    Our leaves are finally beginning to change, so hopefully we will have some pretty color for a while longer.

    Have a wonderful week ahead!

  20. Your plants are doing well Val! Such beautiful colors. My grandmother's favorite was hydrangeas. Your blue one is gorgeous. I have two azalea bushes. They bloomed twice. Probably my lack of watering them. LOL
