October Garden Pictures

October is not bad at all. My garden still has a lot of green color.

 Tetrapanax is still growing and getting higher and higher

 Cercis can. Little Woody

'Oregon Pride'

 Verbena rigida 'Polaris'

 One of the raised beds with Parsley, Garlic and Kale.  More of them growing on other beds.

Fuchsia loves cool weather... Hummingbird loves Fuchsia... I love Fuchsia and Hummingbird...

Abyssynian Banana (1 of 3)

Halloween mushrooms

Autumn delights from our friends' farm

Love this ornamental red-leaf grapevine! 

Foggy morning

Lemon-yellow leaves belong to Schisandra chinensis

These grape leaves actually have some pink tint

Still summery...

Cottage Garden still has many blooms (roses, verbena, nicotiana)

I wish these figs were from my own tree. But they are not mine

Thank you October!
I join Helen's End of Month View

  1. I love your ornamental grapevine! Brilliant foliage.

    1. LeaMorse, thanks! More sun would make it even prettier.

  2. Whether the figs are your or not...nice touch! What is the plant that has the pink/lavender clusters of blooms that looks like a daphne? It's nice to have blooms in the garden when the summer flush of blooms have slowed down.

    1. Thank you Karen! That plant is Verbena rigida 'Polaris'

  3. Isn't the fog at this time of year just wonderful? It adds so much atmosphere. I love your painted metal chicken. Is it new? I don't remember seeing it before.

    1. Alison, Ms.Hen says Hello! It's my flee market's find (approx. 2 years ago). Fogs are awesome!

  4. What a joy to see your stunningly beautiful photos of your stunningly beautiful October gardens! Proof positive that there is much to enjoy this time of year! Thanks for sharing the beauty.

  5. Your garden is scrumptious any time of year, Tatyana! Still mild here in S. Wisconsin, too. Believe it or not, I still haven't had a killing frost. This is very late for me--must be El Nino. Looks like I'll get at least one more bouquet before the cold sets in. You are a great designer: I can see it in the little touches and decorations in your garden. Lovely!

    1. Thank you Beth! Climate is certainly changing; our October is very mild too. My meconopsis didn't bloom this year, it could be because it didn't have a needed cold period,

  6. Wow Tanya! Your garden looks incredibly lush and vibrant for October! Is that typical in your area or is this just a mild autumn? Here in Edmonton Alberta we've had frost and nights of -5 degrees Celsius. Most of the trees are barren, with the exception of the odd poplar. The maples put on quite a show late September but their finery was blown away in a storm a couple weeks ago. Now it seems like everything is hunkering down for winter.

    1. Hi Shirley! Last winter and spring were very mild, the summer was dry and hot, and the fall is mild too! I do miss four seasons, and many plants need some cold temperatures. So, I can't say I'm very happy about current warming. It sound like you will have real winter. Stay warm!

  7. Your garden is always looking beautiful. I just love how you have the knack for layering your plants and decor.Thank for the tour.

  8. Last picture is a wonderful stillife, love it! The huge leaf of the Abyssinian banana is great by the sparkling autumn colours and that funny chicken in your raised herb bed, so pretty.
    You really have stunning gardens, a feast for the eyes.

  9. Beautiful images of October! As much as I enjoy seeing all the blooms and foliage in your lovely garden, I just love your still lifes--you are an artist!

  10. Hi Tanya I love your garden and your photographs are really stylish. I think might love the Hallowe'en mushrooms more than I should :)

  11. It sure doesn't look like an October garden to me, so much still going on! Treasure this last autumnal sweetness before it turns to winter.


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