An October full of Splendor


Hello darlings,

We had a very dry summer, and watering our 
plants was an endless chore.  Autumn arrived
and with it came rain.  Yes,  lots of rain...
Our plants started growing and blooming
like crazy.  It felt like if spring had returned
once again to our gardens.  Here are pictures
of our second Spring.

"You ought to know that October is the
first Spring month."
~ Karen Copk




The herb & vegetable garden was stunning!


~ Basil ~

~ Catnip ~

~ Lemon Balm ~

~Mint ~
Enjoying nectar!

~ Rosemary ~

~ Oregano ~


We have everbearing strawberries sharing
the same garden ... 
... and small creatures too!



This is our first Muscadine grapevine.
 Native to Southeastern, USA

Our first harvest!


"There ought to be Gardens for all
Month in the year, in which, severally,
things of Beauty may be then is Season."
~ Sir Francis Bacon


~ Hot peppers ~

~ Okra's blossom ~

"Just before the death of flowers,
and before they are buried in snow,
there comes a festival season
when nature is all glow."
~ Author Unknown


"I cannot endure to waste anything as
precious as Autumn sunshine by
staying in the house.  So I spend almost
all daylight hours in the open air."
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Blessings in this bountiful season!

With lots of Love,

I'm joining...



Thank you very much for hosting!

  2. Your photos are lovely, Wendy. Your garden looks great for this time of year but I don't where you live. I don't think we have had any rain since July and everything is dry and dead here.
    Enjoy your garden while you can.

  12. Such beautiful Spring flowers. Where we live, it is Autumn, and the leaves are falling, and the weather is getting cooler, and we are starting to wear boots and sweaters. Have a lovely week.
