Let a JOL Warm Your Yard

 Are you needing a Chiminea for your yard? Check out this Ghastly Gourd!! Wouldn't he make a nice addition to a yard? He's not only fun to look at but he'd keep your hands (or tooshy) warm as well! These Jack-O-Lantern themed Chimineas are also available with Goofy or Smiling Faces. And they come in Luminary size!  Click here for more info!

No technically "in my garden"

But it was on the property, and it was amazing to behold. This was on my antena this past weekend.  I just love dragonflies!  Thank you Dawn for grabbing my camera and snapping this picture.

I will have to tell you the story of my last garden involved Hal (Halloween Cat) and group of garden tour visitors....and a dragon fly.

Let me think of the best way to tell that tale. :)

Lillies and apples

Just a quick look at what is blooming the Frog Queen's garden this week. 

I just love all kinds of lilies (Casablanca - white and Stargazer - pink...not sure about the yellow ones) and I got a new columnar apple tree this year...looks like I might get a few apples!

The pumpkin garden

in the graveyard.

Last year I got this wild idea to put one of my skeletons in the graveyard.  I just left him there and the pumpkins that I left there rotted and went to seed.  So we have skeleton in the graveyard version 2.

Hoping for more cute Sugar Pie pumpkins for October....although they are flowering a bit late.  Cross fingers!

Moon Vines and more.....

Our favorite Halloween Flower is the Moon vine!
This year we have planted them in several places!
They have begun their climb along the deck railing,
where we already have our clear lights strung.
Orange lights will be added soon!

More with Morning Glories mixed in!

We also love using Coleus for borders!
One of the prettiest colors is this orange one!

Countdown to Halloween has begun!!!
