It’s hard to find lots of new things to blog about when there is not much happening in the garden. Correction, when most of what’s happening in the garden is leaves blowing and gathering everywhere and all we seem to be doing is trying to keep things tidy. Not an easy task when the wind picks up just after we’ve swept. I’m not actually sure why we bother. I like this look …

Autumn Leaves

Are these Azaleas supposed to bloom now? I thought they bloomed in Spring, but here are the first ones in my Azalea bed blooming right now. Very happy this particular one is blooming because its the one I pulled out of one bed and added to what I now call my “Azalea Bed”. Pretty, no?

And just in case you don’t remember, I have lots of Camellias in bloom right now. They brighten up the winter garden for me with their pretty white and pink flowers …

And I love this look – All different shades of green and bright red berries on the Nandinas – very “Autumny” …
