Late to the gate!

 Yes these morning glories are late to the
gate!  Now it will be  race before the frost hits
to produce more blooms!

They aren't much to brag about but I took a 
few pictures. 

On the right side I also have a 
Sweet Autumn Clematis planted which has a 
bunch of blooms at the top that are 
just waking up too!  
 Last year I had 1/3rd the amount of vines of 
the morning glories, but 5 times the amount 
of flowers...and they should be blue not pink!  
I think I should have given them a quick

 I've let the vines run their own course and 
haven't been trimming them.   Usually I 
keep it more trimmed but this year I 
thought I would see how it would look if I 
let it be more natural.
Last weekend the morning sun was shining
in and out of the trees and I watched
it for about a half hour while having 
my morning coffee and finally decided
to snap a few pictures.
I set this 3 ft. tall dove statue by the hostas 
and hydrangeas.  By August the Limelight's 
had hidden it pretty well.  I guess I'll
find another spot for it next year.
A few more roses were blooming so I cut
them and made an arrangement with some 
hydrangeas.  I cut some of the spiky leaves 
from the Cordyline spike plant and stuck 
them in there for some added interest.
That's a wrap for this week!
Hope you are having a good one and will have a great weekend!

  2. Wow! So pretty!!!
    Thanks so much for coming by my blog and commenting. I tried to reply, but your email address isn't attached to your profile, so I headed on over to say thank you here. ;o) And yes, I do have one limelight. My goal is to make it more of a tree shape. This is only it's second year in the ground, so I think by next year it will be closer to looking how I want it. I just love them and wish I had room for more.
    From just what I've seen so far, your yard is sooooo pretty!
    Now I'm gonna poke around the rest of your garden!

  3. Hi Liz,

    Your garden path is stunning! I love the natural look of the vines and your pink rose centerpiece is gorgeous. Have the leaves started to change in your area yet?
