On This.......The Last Day of September....One More Garden Walk...

On this dark, wet, gloomy last day of September.... 
I decided to grab my camera...and head outside...to see my garden...

My Geraniums are all ready to come inside...all in fresh pots...

To flower gloriously for a few more months...and then take a long nap...

To share their beauty once again next summer...

My basket of Begonias is still going strong...beautiful as ever...

I think that they deserve to come in for the winter as well...

How can I say no to that face???  :o)

This cutie is on it's third season...happy in a pot with a burgundy spike...will spend another winter beside me and the computer...
Second flush of deep pink Phlox in the front garden...
"See you all next season...I am going to be nice and warm inside!"

                              "Gee....isn't that Linda a wonderful gardener? She takes such loving care of us"
                                                                   tee hee hee.....


                                                                 ************

Off to see the Dr tomorrow...

Get rid of this sore throat...I sounded like Darth Vader today!!

Hope you all had a great day...

Hope to see the sun tomorrow....

Get back into the garden for some colorful shots...

Looking forward to a warm...sunny October....:o)

What did you all do today????

                                                 Cheers!  :o)

  1. You still have lots of pretty blooms Linda. I dug out some old barn boards from the shed, finally! And I dug out some of the iris that were too crowded and growing into the lawn. Murray mowed and mulched some of the leaves that have fallen. There are thousands more to come though. It was a gorgeous day again. Loving this weather.

  2. Uh Oh, doctor appointment? Hope you'll be soon feeling better.

    Lovely garden shots, Linda. I took my scented geraniums in a few weeks ago but the phlox and begonias are still going strong. I did so much work this weekend and yet there is so much more to do:) Hope you're feeling better real soon, rest...

    1. I have never heard of scented geraniums! How lovely!
      Thanks for the kind thoughts!

    2. The scented geraniums I grow are not related to the geraniums you have pictured Linda. You really should look into finding them though, YOU would love them! They come in all kinds of flavors too. Rose , Strawberry, and even Chocolate. I did a post about them a while back. Let me know if you would like to take a look at it. If not, do a search on google for Pelargoniums. I once baked a pound cake with scented geranium leaves and it was amazing!!! (I believe they are in the mint family but don't quite me on that. I would gladly share a clipping with you if you can't find them:)

    3. I will look that up, Louise!
      I don't think they will let us ship plants over the border...but, thanks!

    4. Whoops, that's probably true Linda. Good Luck finding the info. It's readily available.

  7. I took Mom off to the doctor today and she had her nose cauterized. :0)
    Your flowers are so pretty. We didn't get any rain today, just a little bit of overcast sky and then sunshine.
    Hope you can throw off the Vader costume for October.

  10. Sweet Linda....imagine my delight and surprise when I went to my mailbox tonight and found your lovely card!
    You are so kind and thoughtful. And I absolutely loved the photo on the front. What I wouldn't give to sit there with you and chat away!!! Thank you so much for thinking of me. You are a kindred spirit. And I SO wish we didn't live on opposite sides of the continent!
    Love you oodles!!!

  13. I would have loved to have been in the garden today to see the last of the colour but everything is being pruned now and I was at work. So instead I looked at the garden out of my work window in the shadow of the Cathedral... with someone else doing the pruning! Great photos Linda, and enjoy October x
