Emerald Autumn in My Garden

Autumn is slowly creeping into my garden
The shady corner doesn't feel it yet.
The morning sun is pushing its way through the tangles of the Magnolia Vine.
A huge leaf of the Tetrapanax is happily bathing in its light. 
Summery Euphorbia in the basket, covered in white pearls, is eagerly waiting for it.
Baby tears are sleeping soundly down on the ground. 
Just one single yellow rhododendron leaf is shyly signaling about autumn getting close.
So far, only the folding garden chair has a definite autumn color.

  1. It's all beautiful and peaceful!

  2. Autumn has not yet arrived in your garden, dahlias and annuals are still going strong. I like that purple Salvia, is that Salvia guaranitica?

  3. Beautiful photos of your beautiful garden!

  4. Amazingly beautiful!! Your garden and your photography is wonderful.

  5. So lush and lovely--it looks like a summer garden! Autumn comes later to parts of my shady garden, too, but it's really taking over quickly now! Beautiful photos, Tatyana!

  6. Your garden is still going strong...beautiful photos!

  7. Tatyana excellent photos as ever ,your garden still looking nice and lush.

  8. beautifully captured...... nice to see some flowers looking up and some leisurely hanging down, looking at the grass below.

  9. A feast for my eyes and soul...those pansy planters nearly knocked me over....I was unable to plant any this year.

  10. Hi Tatyana, Fabulous, as always. I am curious, what is the plant with the spiky, pink-white flowers, eight photos down? And, also, the strawberry Saxifrage. Does it die completely down in winter? How do you care for it during winter? I have a few of them in pots and I'd love to have them in the ground but I'm not sure how they'll do. Thanks!

  11. Thank you everyone for your comments!
    Grace, I was going to show it in a separate post; it's Leucosceptrum stellipilum ‘Ogon'.
    Strawberry saxifrage: hardiness zone 6 - 10. In winter, it doesn't look as great as in summer, but it stays OK! I love it!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
