September Garden





While Cricket and the other kitties napped I went outside to see what was still blooming in the garden. All of my vibrant summer bloomers have faded away for the season, leaving mums and cool weather pansies to provide color for a few more weeks. We have lots of squirrels in our yard and they are pretty used to people. They love all of the trees that surround all of the old houses in the neighborhood.
The leaves are still quite green. It has been very warm for late September, but they will probably start to turn when it gets chillier next week. I'm not ready for chilly.
This weekend will probably be rather quiet. My husband has to work for a few hours tomorrow, but it would be nice to get out somewhere. I would like to get some tulip and hyacinth bulbs to put in the ground for next spring. You can never have enough pretty flowers to greet you after a long winter. It would be so nice to live in the south and garden all year long.
I hope to visit blogs throughout the weekend. Daisy has a new brother, Miss Peach and Mommy Karla should be returning from vacation and I'm sure there are far more interesting things going on than here. :) Actually, I will take boring over stress any day, so I won't complain. Quiet is nice. :)

I hope everyone has a really nice, un-stressful weekend!

Hi Lorianna, Billie and the bunch! Thank you for coming by to visit the past few days and especially for my birthday. Those are some beautiful flowers in your garden. Some of mom's geraniums(?)were still blooming this week. I hope you have a restful weekend!

Those pansies are so pretty! The thing about living in south Florida is we do not have any change of seasons. The leaves just stay green all year. It is a little bit boring.

Your yard and garden are preparing for the really Fall colors soon and I am sure your neighborhood will be beautiful then!

I hope you have a delightful week-end

Lorianna,
Sorry again that I have not been around! My mom is so busy. I wish I could visit more like I used to. Mom is quitting her job and starting a new one Oct 1.....so more busy days ahead.
Love the hanging around shots in your previous post. Your garden still looks nice and great to have flowers still!

Things are changing around here too. Mom has brought up some sweaters from downstairs storage and it is much cooler than just a few weeks ago. The kitties have it right....just nap.
