We last did a Flower Friday post late in September, so today we thought we’d share the rest of the blooms we have seen over these last two months of fall.
In late September, much of the color we saw was from these wildflowers that lined our driveway.
In early October, the only flowers blossoming in our barn garden were these asters….
….except for this one hardy, lone daylily!
This pot of impatiens hung in right until the first hard freeze, but now all that is left is the color from the pumpkins, and it will be time to put away these animals for the winter soon!
By mid-November, all color from the flowers was gone. While I frequently complain about our barberry bush (those barbs really hurt if you get poked by one!), it does bring us a bit of color right into the winter. I am always saying we should get rid of it, but one reason I don’t is because some little birds (I think chipping sparrows) love to build their nests in there. I always have trouble seeing the nests, but with the leaves gone we can now see this one!
Our first snow made for a prettier scene on that bush as well.
No matter the weather, we’ll always be outside playing ball, and we always have the splashes of color around our yard from Cricket and Luke’s collection of balls!
Which is your favorite?
Thank you to Da DB Boyz, and their new little puppy, Rosy, for hosting the Flower Friday blog hop.
