Beautiful Morning Sunrise


Wanted to show you some pictures of the sun coming up over the butterfly garden.


The light was just magical….


Making everything just glow….


Especially the grasses…..


And the trees…..


The morning sun made the leaves glisten….


And the blooms brighter….


Especially the irises….


And the coneflowers still blooming…..


Signs of winter are all around us…..


So I cherish the last few pretty mornings I can be outside.

Happy Gardening….Brooke

Frosty Morn


It was a beautiful sunrise the other day, a we had just a touch of frost.


So yes, silly me, I went out in 30 degree weather to take pictures.


It is just so pretty to see the tiny bits glisten on the plants.


Even though so many things are dying back this week, I still find so much beauty in the garden.IMG_7687

What lovely gifts they have been for me this year.  I am so thankful I took pictures to remember them for the long weeks ahead.

Happy Gardening….Brooke

Welcome November Roses!


I had to make a new file folder for the first time this morning…. November Blooms! 


My “The Fairy” Roses are just full of color…. the is a perfect bouquet!

IMG_7691 I have a pink and white theme in this bed…. here is an Immortality RB iris with the roses in the background.  There are six irises, but just this one is blooming…. I hope all of them will be next year.


More detail…. and it has a wonderful scent.


What is not to love about irises…. I have so many that are new… I cannot wait till they bloom next spring!


My annuals have been taking off again.  I am thinking about digging this one up today to try to save it from the frosts.


These white mums have been so striking at the firepit.  You can see them from the road.  Just this week they are getting a touch of pink.


I love grasses…. this one is by the driveway…. it looks fantastic and I just planted it before the garden tour this summer.


Here you can see it with my Sunny Knockout Roses….


Aren’t they the most vibrant yellow?  They fade as they mature…. but I love them.

I have more pictures to share soon…. I took some of the rising sun and frost the other morning.

Until then…..Happy Gardening….Brooke
