So, so glorious!!!
Was I sad to put the garden to bed?
But how can I remain unhappy when all of this is before me now???
Aren't we blessed to live in such a gorgeous world?
When I wake in the morning...I have a ritual.
I go to my bedroom window, and draw back the curtains, and say a prayer.
A prayer of thanksgiving.
For every bit of it!
The seasons change so beautifully here.
It makes everyday a pleasure.
It makes me want to jump from the bed in the morning just to see the loveliness
that will be gone too soon from view.
These are the last views of the garden I will be showing this year on my blog.
I now hope to get some pretty things made for Christmas to give as gifts this year.
My daughter who lives in Boise came and spent two days with me,
and helped to jump start my creativity.
I have difficulty switching gears from one thing to another sometimes,
and it takes something, or someone to help prod me a little.
I have no idea when Jo Packham will be contacting me about shooting the feature
on the studio, but I think I had better get to making something to show for having
such a fun place to create in.
Nature has certainly been busy (without any prodding at all) creating amazing views
in the garden and around my lovely part of Idaho.
These are some earthworm eye views of the leaves falling all around
the beds and lawn.
I have all the work done in the garden for another year and it feels good to have
accomplished it all before the snow comes.
Of course there is always something that will have been overlooked...
like getting all the hoses rolled up, the lawnmower Winterized,
and the patio furniture stashed undercover...
but those are Dale's chores.
I'm just sayin'...
Sorry about all the pictures...
but I had so many I wanted to share and had trouble deciding, since it was the last post on the garden
This crabapple is my favorite in the garden.
Still so much green for this time of year here.
And...can you believe these next few were taken the same day???
Just a couple of days ago!
And this is my last garden bouquet of the year!!!
I will miss you, beautiful roses!
And a few words to live by
Thank you for letting me share my passion for gardening here and
for your encouragement.
So until next year...
