Beautiful Autumn

Sharing a little fall I've been enjoying lately before
I begin decorating for the holidays. I can hardly believe 
that Thanksgiving is next week and the family will all be here
enjoying each other's company and over-indulging on pies😆 

 gathered-garden gifts

rose hips,oak leaves, and crabapples

I love the red leaf roses and I have them everywhere.
I enjoy them most when Fall comes to the garden.
Their hips turn from an auburn color to a bright red when the weather 
turns cooler and then turn more orange as their 
leaves turn from red to green to yellow, and then to orange.

The Limelight hydrangeas as they blush with pink in the cooler weather

Brandywine crabapple

Below is the Golden Raindrops crabapple fruit still hanging on the tree.
It's little apples are usually the first eaten by the birds that come in flocks
in late October, but for some reason, when they flew into the garden
they devoured the snowdrift crabapple fruit that grows right next to it instead and
left it for another flock of birds sure to come later. 

Snowdrift crabapples turn from green to orange in the fall
before it's foliage turns a pretty autumn gold

Weeping birch

I have shared a little more Fall color on the garden blog too.

I wish everyone a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!!!
sending hugs to you all!

This is such a treat, June. I enjoy seeing snippets of your home, and you always seem to integrate nature inside so seamlessly! Such a sweet vignette, and then to see the sources outdoors! The crabapples are so, so pretty. You really know them well, and the birds! Very lucky little things! Are any of these apples edible? You mentioned pies... :)

Sending you wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving with your family!

Almost 72 and I'm shocked and dismayed to say I've never seen rose hips growing in such profusion! Truly a sight for sore eyes (I'm just getting over eye surgery) and your pictures are like a wonderful reminder of why I'm happy to have gone through it. Rose hip jelly is now something I understand. All I ever noticed before were several hard, red, dried up hips on my rose branches here in Florida. Maybe it has something to do with variety and environmental conditions. Anyway, those pictures are gorgeous. Thanks.

June this is breathtaking. Your gardens in all of Autumn’s glory. I can guess that the birds find refuge there. If I were a bird I would want to live in your garden. I just posted on my blog. I am trying to return to blogging. I hope you will come by to visit. x Kerrie

Hi June. you always have something beautiful and unique to share everything is so lovely. I think that gardens are as beautiful in the fall as they are in the spring time. I love using rose hips for bouquets they really bring in a fresh pretty color. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!
