|Roses are still blooming.. what is left of them|
The mums started to overtake other plants and even bushes in front of them.. I even had a ceramic pot with flowers on the ground and you couldn't even see it! Finally, I had to pull them up this weekend and use wire stakes to prop them up!
The mums are probably about 5' high and just as wide! Full of blooms! They are a peach-rust color.. actually quite pretty, but the camera didn't capture them that well.
|A better picture of the "crazy mums"|
The ferns we had hanging on the front porch still looked pretty good ... even had 2 bird nests in them! I didn't have the heart to throw them away.. so I hooked them on the garden fence until it's time to dump them in the woods.
The colors are just so pretty right now.. every shade of yellow, green, pink, orange.. and everything in between.
|It's not the best looking landscape in front of the garden, but I had to prop up the "crazy mums"! Hey.. there is the ceramic urn I've been missing for the last 6 weeks! ha ha|
This clematis was at the ground level this Spring. We also need to put more wire fence up for it to continue growing.. because it started to flop over on one side. It grows on the outside garden wall.

|Another clematis.. just a couple more blooms before the freezing temperatures hit. This is on the lattice that we put up on the front of the garden shed a few years back.|
|A few more Honeysuckle flowers too on the same garden shed lattice.|
|Another urn that was supposed to be cleaned out this weekend.. but everything was showing color in the warm sun so I've let it go a little longer!|
|Laundered the seat cushions of our patio furniture and it's almost ready for winter. We still need to put away some of our accessories for the winter (and cover the furniture).|
We are thoroughly enjoying our driveway pillars... I love to decorate them for the season. We have "up lights" in the ground that are solar-powered and really like them too. It's nice going down such a dark country road and having the pillars lit up!
Next... should have some final pictures of our bathroom soon. We are still waiting on a few items like door fronts to some drawers (incorrect ones were sent to us) and to decide on towel and toilet paper hardware. Who'd have thought that would be the hardest part!?
