A Beautiful Foggy Morning and Tuesday Garden Party - 9/9

What a  glorious morning!
We woke up with cool weather in the 50s...
It looks and feels like fall here at the lake.
Scooby is checking out the birds down by the dock.
I love it when the lake looks like this.

The garden has a magical glow on foggy mornings...
The sun captures the light and makes everything shine.
 Gyspy and I have wet feet from walking in the grass.
 But everything looks fresh and renewed.
 The sedums and reblooming hydrangeas are lovely this week.
 As well as the annuals like moss verbena and sweet asylums.
 We have had a few hot days, but the rest of the weeks looks wonderful.
 I know I should be sad that fall is near, but it is my favorite time of the year.

Okay, lets start the GARDEN PARTY!

From your host this week, Shelly at Frugal Family Home

I love growing pole beans in the garden. You plant them and they just keep on giving, until you pull them up. Our beans are still producing really well, so well that I've started sharing with the neighbors. We have enough canned green beans to last us for about a year now.

To support my pole beans, cucumbers and sugar snap peas, I use a DIY Garden Trellis made from a cattle panel. The beans have fully taken over their panel. The cucumbers don't get as full, but they do climb up the trellis quite well. If you need a trellis for next year consider making a cattle panel one. They work well, are easy to store for the winter (since they fold flat) and they're sturdy too. Great for growing plants vertically.

Now onto the feature posts from last week's Tuesday Garden Party,
