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.

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