October Clear and Bright

My porch decorations are slowly being eaten. 

This one (Kelly) REALLY likes to munch on them.  It's funny, he leaves the corn alone. 

"What are we doing out here, Maa maa?"

"Windy, we're planting the tulips that you and Windy and Kelly mixed all together for Maa Maa". 

I planted. 

They ate. 

My other helpers were out there, too. 

The big Range. 

And the beauteous Lil. 

Today, I'll be planting the sweet autumn clematis I bought during the tour on Saturday. 

It's almost, but not quite, time to pull the zinnias out.  There are still a few flowers waiting to bloom, even on October 8th.  I would say I got my money's worth on those seeds! 

They'll flip around and grow in the full sun on the other side of the fence, in the new bed, next year. 
There is a hydrangea bush in their bed that never had a chance this year. 

I'm also thinking of taking out the caryopteris that is too close to the big buddleia. 

Grow little pumpkin, GROW!!!!


  1. They are all such wonderful helpers! Hope your pumpkin gets the chance to turn orange. :-)

  2. my flower beds are pitiful again! too much to do with horses and hobbies.

  3. Not everyone can look out and see goats eating the decorations on their porch! :) That's cute! I'm sure they're loving this time of year, now that it's getting cooler!

  4. I love all your little "helpers"! :-)
