Faded Glory

                                                                         Happy Weekend!
           Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far.  I planted about 200 more bulbs in the garden today-mostly tulips. I am still hoping to get some more next week and get them in the ground right away.
  Anyway,as I was walking through the garden planning for spring, I thought I should capture some of the beauty of the faded glory going on in the garden right now. I sure do love the different seasons as there is always change and something beautiful going on.
              You may be getting tired of my late blooming Monkshood but I love how it gives color right through to November. The virginia creeper on the porch is turning into it's fall colors too.
                           This Elmira rose puts on a great show in Late autumn as well.
     Still lovin' my somewhat faded annebelle hydrangea. They started blooming the first part of July this year and they still have charm. Can't get much better then that!

            Spirea,lilac and limelight hydrangea with frosted hosta's around the tree.
                          I looked out the upstair window and wanted to capture the light from a sunny autumn day and also how rapidly things change as the maple tree was at it's peak for autumn color just last week and already it is getting bare.
                                  Soon we will be taking in the lighter statues and garden ornaments ,benches etc.
         Some people think I would be sad to see the garden season end but for me there is still lots of beauty in all the' faded glory" and I by the time the garden season is completely over I am already planning for the Christmas season which I also love. Also, love the beauty of the garden under a nice cover of fresh snow. and before I know it those newly planted tulips will be poking through giving lots of promise of the beauty to come.I must be getting old because the seasons seem to go by so quickly for me.
                              This old door doesn't actually open into our house  but when we did some renovations several years ago this entrance was changed and rather then  take it out and shingle-I thought it would be nice to leave it and just not have a walkway up-just call me crazy! . I think of this as my old English doorway with the vines growing around it.! On the other side of the door there is a closet. Makes perfect sense to me!!!

      Well , I hope you see the beauty of the faded glory too or maybe you live in a climate where the spring bulbs are just poking through- either way enjoy!

                                                                      Take care,
