The last days of my garden

Just thought I’d share these final photos of my garden.  I didn’t spend a lot of time in my garden this year — too much rain, not enough time, away for a good portion of the summer, many excuses, none of them particularly good, but she still rewarded me with some beautiful blooms and scenery.

These pictures were taken last week — before the really heavy frosts started hitting us.

The final bloom on my hardy shrub rose.

    1. These are perrenial and grow like weeds almost, self-seeding everywhere — real pansies — the big showy ones are annuals here. I like that name, too.

  1. I adore flowers! Thank you for this post. By golly, I took a pic of tenacious johnny-jump-ups pretending to be the real thing?! Thanks for the enlightenment, Kathy.. 😀

    1. Thank you so much for dropping by! I don’t know where that name johnny jump up came from, but we use it here for the little perennial type of pansy — they’re always that beautiful purply-blue colour.
