Garden Tuesday: Yard

My leaves are falling off the trees. It appears to be a law that the majority of the leaves can still cling to the trees on October 31, but they had better hit the ground on November 1.
But a blue spruce is a wonderful thing; it retains a superb color year round!

And, another glimpse of my gate...the burning bushes are burning more fiercely!

The gate is stunning! The leaves are falling here too. I'd love to see a picture of your spruce after a good dusting.

Absolutely beautiful. Our leaves are almost all on the ground now too.

The gate is gorgeous. We didn't have very good color this year because of the constant rain. Most of the trees are bare now. We've always loved blue spruce. When we lived in PA there was a park called Blue Spruce and we spent every weekend there.

You have such a fantastic yard - I love the gate.

I think your gate is stunning too! We have one burning bush. Are the tall bushes at the gate burning bush, or are there trees behind them? They certainly are beautiful.

It's like a world of pink. I would live in your gate.

what a nice, big yard! I love your burning bushes.

Our yard is the size of a postage stamp, but I think we're going to get the empty lot next door. If so? Palm trees :)

Pam said...

Wow. I need me some burning bushes.

Yep, the leaves are falling and I love it!

What a wonderful place for Thor to romp with his boys. Your fall colours are so beautiful to look at and the trees by the gate ... just gorgeous!

Huggles from me, and snores once more from Zeb (eating is such exhausting work)
