September Flowers

Summer has come to an end.
The light, sunshine days and heat
are winding down

Although Autumn flowers
and trees are spectular with color
at this time of year.

Enjoy my little Garden Tour

Rudbeckia are so bright and colourful.

My Powderpuff Hollyhocks
have done well this year.
I started them from seed last yr.
and they flowered beautiful.



I planted them beside my old hayracker
This photo was taken earlier in the Spring.

Camomile have done well this year.
They reseed a lot.


BlackEyed Susans

Daisies


 Echinacea ~ Cone Flowers


A close up


White Phlox are starting to flower

Smoketree after the rain is so pretty


Gooseneck Loosestrife
has really spread this year.


Tiger Lilies
An heirloom plant
From my Grandmother many years ago.


So bright and colourful

Red Day Lilies
A closeup,

I don't know the name
of this type of Sunflower
they are pretty...
Hostas
A great ground cover
and low maintenance.

I live near the Baie des Chaleur
One day while walking on the beach,
I came upon this piece of beachwood.



After a few days of thinking about it,
I convinced my brother, who has a truck,
to get it for me. It's approx. 8 ft. long.
Luckily it was still there.
High tides didn't take it/him out in the deep ocean
or he could have become a victim of a bonfire.
I think he looks at home in my garden.
Don't you?
I've named him SeaBiscuit.
I'm hoping that SeaBiscuit will scare of the deer
that come into my garden and eat my hostas
and other flowers.


 I hope you've enjoyed my garden tour.
Thanks for your visit xo.


Thinking of everyone
who have experienced these tragic
hurricanes down south. 
God bless you all.

An Afternoon Tea

I'm having an afternoon tea

I set it up on my old tea wagon.
I using a mixture of blue and white dishes.
Some of my photo are hazy
due to poor lightning

The tablecloth I used
is Vintage Tuscan Lace
