Flower Bed in October

The perennials are starting to die back and the leaves to fall, but the rain we had last week has also brought some positive changes to the property.

For instance, we have grass in the orchard, sprouting in the goat pen and on the slopes.

The flower bed looks lush, with the alyssum growing thick and fragrant.  The last burst of bloom is on the rose bushes.


  1. Beautiful! I'll bet your critters are loving the grass.

  2. even though we haven't gotten much rain, the couple of inches we got last month was enough to show shades of green in the hay pasture again - and the horses are happy about that!

  3. Holding on just as long as they can and doing a beautiful job of it.

  4. Lovely pictures of your lush flowers. Amazing what a little water does...

    Like your header picture...all your friends.

  5. Very pretty. Alyssum is one of my favorites.


Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
