Outdoor Fall Welcome

Finally, finally things are blooming. I don't know about you
but I have planted so many flower seeds hoping for an
abundance of flowers everywhere. YOu know those
English gardens? Everywhere you look there are blooms,
shrubs, rose bushes...that is what I want...so I planted
and planted....fought off dangerous GOPHERS....RABBITS..
SQUIRRELS....but the only flowers that do well
are the ones I've planted in containers on the porch.

Ok maybe there was a kitten or two...maybe
even a concrete skunk (above)....

And hopefully before the frost...my morning glories will
bloom their little hearts out!
"And the Lord God planted a garden....and out of the ground made God to
grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food:" Genesis 2:8,9

Debbie your blooms are so pretty. Here in Ohio things are really starting to die out and the colors are changing for fall.
Have a blessed week,

Hi Debbie,
I thought I would hop over here and see what your up to! At least you still have some blooms because here their gone. It's time for pansies and mums!

It's always fun to read your posts and you are always so sweet. Your personality shines through.

Fall looks so pretty around your house, but every season does Debbie. You have such a gift when it comes to decorating. I love the blooms outside too :-)
P.S. I'm still having trouble leaving comments from my computer, but I grabbed my son's laptop, and it worked just fine. I'm not sure what's going on with mine, but yours is the only blog I'm having this problem with. I just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else emails you with this problem too :-)
