Autumn showers

I took myself into the garden this morning to bring cheer and colour into the day. It is gloomy when it rains and I guess my spirit tends to drop on cloudy days – so I’m definitely not  a winter person. But, I somehow love the rain and how the garden looks when its wet and drippy! Even the little bugs in the garden are somehow enjoying the autumn showers. I wanted to share my wet garden with you!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Lovely photos Barbie!! I’m very envious of your blooms, all I have flowering now is … oh, nothing actually. One of the bigger Camellias is in bud and the rest … nothing! But your bloometjies brighten my day 🙂

Awe… just what I hoped, to brighten your day! My roses are always there to please 😉

Glad you shared, the flowers look great all wet with the pretty raindrops. That little fly looks mighty happy for the rain, but too bad you been having so much rain though.

Hi Donna – your beautiful wet garden gave me the inspiration to go out & look at my garden with loving eyes!

What an interesting picture of the aphids! The raindrops on blooms are always so beautiful. I get a bit down when the weather turns cold, too. Glad you got to get out in the garden for a bit.
