Monday In Bloom

It was pretty nice when I popped out to take pictures Sunday.  I even went barefoot!  Not because it was that awesome outside, but because I couldn’t find my shoes, lol.  Thankfully, it was nice enough I could do that without freezing my toes off.  😀

Still, it was pretty nice.  I was glad.  I know it’ll be one of the last nice days for a while, and this will be the last of the In Bloom posts until next Spring.  It’s been getting pretty cold on the overnights, close to freezing once or twice, and we might even get snow this coming weekend.  Yikes!  We will have some nights into the 20s, so whatever is left of the garden will certainly be gone after that. 
There really isn’t much left now, as it is.  The mums, of course, but the annuals are looking pretty bleak, and the perennials are really to go to sleep for the Winter.  It’s time.

The side patch now looks tired and sparse, no longer vibrant and thriving.

The mums had a few flowers.  Just a measly few though.

And the snapdragons were giving up their last bit of glory.

The purple sweet alyssum seems to be enjoying the slide into Winter, although it too is losing leaves and petals.  It’s also giving off a really strong, beautiful fragrance as it leaves.

This tree across the way keeps getting lovelier and lovelier.  The way the colors are so variegated is breathtaking to me.

And that’s it!  That’s how my garden grew this year!  I hope you’ve enjoyed it.  I certainly have loved sharing it with you!  Thank you for sitting in the garden with me for a bit!
