~Getting Ready For Winter~

While the weather isn't rainy, hot or muggy, Stush is putting some porch and pool things away and also getting ready to cover the pool. The weather is alot cooler then yesterday so I think that's why he started this project:)
I decorated a bit out by the pool house, my marigolds did great, first time I've ever had them. I think next year though I'll go back to the impatients they always did well planted there.
In back of the trellis is fern that I transplanted to here from down the hill on our property they really took so I hope they will even spread a bit next spring:) This is my climatis... it is the third time to bloom this year, hopefully next year we will see many more blooms I sure hope so because I love seeing the ones that are just covered with flowers in other peoples yards. I don't know about you but it's sort of sad to see the flowers and know that soon as a frost hits they will be gone, I know alot of you love fall and say it is your favorite season but I'm partial to spring whenever everything is fresh and new.
Oh well, for everything there is a season!


  1. I love the flowers of Spring and Summer, but am always ready for a break from yard work when fall rolls around. Hope you're having a great day. Julie

  2. Cute, cute cute! I love the sign hanging from the climatis! Too funny!

  3. I love the pool house garden!
    None of my flowers did too good this year, we had a pretty dry summer.

  4. I like how you decorated your pool house ~ Very cute !

  5. hey girl...love that Clematis vine..I have 6 and they get bigger every year..I love Fall because of the colors but my favorite time of the year is Spring!!!! Ohhhh my word when everything in bloom in the backyard it is unbelievable...We live outdoors in the Springtime! lol Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a fantastic week!

  6. such beautiful flowers...wish i had a green thumb:( i always kill EVERYTHING i try to grow. oh well, hope your day was great:) <3Lauren

  7. I'm with you, I love spring when everything is fresh and new. My heart saddens when beauty dies in the fall. I think I suffer from seasonal depression, September 1 through March 31, ha.

  8. Oh you have a cute home!! I just love the purple climatis, I planted so much of that at my Mom's and it takes off up her trelis! I so wish my garden looked like that! It turned out so pathetic this year! Hehee!

    Have a great day!

  9. I also have the same clematis! This is my third one. All the others died and I never knew what I did wrong. So far, this one has done well. We planted it three years ago and it is still small, but makes the prettiest blooms. I want more! LOL!
