I took this shot of the garden just a couple of days ago. It was one of those perfect Texas fall days. The garden was alive with butterflies and bees and the flowers were at their brightest due to the cooler evenings followed by balmy days. Then, overnight a frost and suddenly winter was in the air. Flowers began to fade. Tomorrow I will begin the big tidy up and seed collection and bring inside the remaining tender plants, even though we are promised summer-like temperatures this week!


  1. It seems this year for you, fall is fleeting but late summer is always a few days from returning. Wish I could send you our constant upper 50's to low 60's, but then your garden wouldn't look so nice. And nice it is.

  2. What a beautiful garden. It is fully of such great color. I just love it!

  3. Lovely garden pic and inviting! Good luck with all the seed collecting and moving of plants.

  4. It's always a shame to lose things to frost, only to be followed by warm temps again. It's fun to gather seeds. Clean-up....not so fun-LOL!

  5. Your garden is so lovely.
    We were down to 28 a few nights ago. Strangely, not much got bitten. Maybe because of the trees.
    We'll soon be warm again, though.
    I'm ready for some chilly weather and RAIN!

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Beautiful! Your garden always looks so gorgeous. You've captured the best days, our gardens are best in the fall. I'm enjoying this somewhat milder weather this year. We had one cold night but no frost so far.
