Come Walk With Me

Come walk with me in the garden. Most of the flowers are blooming for the last time and we don't want to miss the show.

My New Dawn climbing rose usually only blooms once but she is offering a few last blooms.

The red Saliva is doing better than it has all summer. The little hummers love to come visit this flower.

This is Betty Boop. Isn't she stunning. I planted her in memory of my mother-in-law who was a Betty.

Asters are always a favorite of mine. They last so well and the purple just pops in the garden.

Crepe Myrtle is sure to catch your eye.

The variegated Liriope just keeps blooming and needs no care.

And last is Hot Cocoa. Certainly an appropriate choice for the fall days ahead.

I am off to the lake to see my surgeon. This should be my last visit. I had hoped by this time I would not limping but my leg is not getting stronger as fast as I had hoped. However, I feel blessed that I am walking with no cane.

Hi Stella,
I enjoyed the stroll through your garden and I love the beautiful Hot Cocoa, what a gorgeous colour they are.
Hope your leg keeps improving, slowly it may be, but it's on the mend if you have managed to rid yourself of the cane.
Warmest Hugs,
Sandi @ Bearly Sane

I loved sharing your garden walk! And I love that you are walking through the garden unassisted!

That Hot Cocoa rose is just gorgeous -- I love all your photos. (We saw crepe myrtle for the first time on this roadtrip -- I love it!)

Hope the Dr visit went well...

Your flowers are beautiful, especially the roses. I will be so sorry when they are gone for the winter. I just love my garden. It was a real challenge this summer because it was so hot, but it's beautiful now. We've had rain for the last 3 days, so it is too wet to work out there today, maybe tomorrow. I hope your leg continues to improve.
