Fall garden finale

We are on borrowed time here as far as the first frost goes. Before that happens, I thought I'd better take a stroll through the garden for the fall finale look, both at home and at the studio. 

Here's what I found:

The Pieter B rose keeps going

Along with the other late fall roses

And another rose

Beautiful hops at the studio

And the wonderful patina of the remaining hydrangeas

Don't you just love the luscious colors?

Here is the fall clematis (a very reliable bloomer that spreads slowly)

The osage oranges are beginning

Lauren Liess at Pure Home Style recently did a great post on the osage orange; see it here.

Last, but not least, here is one of my favorite colors of a dahlia nestled in the collection of very prolific, white dahlia blooms:

Thank you, Cindy, at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

  2. wow! Your garden is still beautiful. How do you do it? This weekend is all about pulling up leggy , overgrown stuff for me.

  3. I love the hops. Are they easy to grow? The hydrangeas are beautiful. Mine quit a while ago. I'm near Seattle.

  4. Oh, how beautiful!
