~ " Hints of Fall " ~


Purple Dome Asters & Texas Sage~Coral Nymph
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"The foliage has been losing it's
freshness through the month of
August, and here & there
a yellow leaf show's itself..."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes


"For man, Autumn is a time of harvest,
of gathering together,
For nature, it is a time of sowing,
of scattering abroad."
~Edwin Teale



~Lot's of purple in the garden now...


~More & more color showing in
the Autumn Joy Sedum...

Thanks for visting my blog! I do love to garden, but right now with having just moved, having started a new job, I don't have time to do much. And our ground needs LOTS of "tlc" and compost.

You sure know how to do justice to the beautiful gentle season of autumn. Isn't it wonderful when Autumn Joy flowers...such a dainty flower from a not so dainty plant- more sculptural really. No matter how much I see a flower, they always seem so amazing, vibrant, colourful.....
happy Autumn days to you,
Angela.

Your collages are breath taking! :)
I have that Asters too in my garden. In another pink colour and white. The autumn leafs together with the rest of the flowers are just beautiful! :)
Nice combinations.
Sedum is a sign of fall.
Lovely.
I will be back. ;)

Catherine, thank you for stopping by my blog. You are so kind with your comments. Your garden is so lovely. I love the blue and silver and what an idea you have given me with your Cowboys colors. We are Chiefs fans. I could do a red, white and gold (yellow) flower bed. I think the men would love it and I don't have to wait until next spring to plant. It could be done with mums this fall. I look forward to reading more of your blog entries.

Your photos are such a visual feast every day, and as colour is my thing, I think I will follow a colour theme after I've finished the elements.

Lovely.

And around here, it's really Fall when I see the Joe Pie Weed turned to its lovely soft purple color.
