Sunny September Mornings!

Sunny September Mornings are the best!

I buzzed outside early this m morning to capture a few sunny morning shots.  I pulled out the vining plants that were beneath these geraniums and it looks new all over again!  Geraniums like the cooler temps that we've been having too!

The zinnias are wonderful to look at!  These colors seem perfect for the fall season!

My phone camera had a hard time with the ultra bright sunlight on this zinnia-  it looks a bit cartoonish but it's real!

The celosia is really doing well.  The sun was hitting it perfectly and it looks a bit like a flame!

My fall wreath in contrast next to the summery basket of flowers!

The sun reaches through the trees spotlighting things.   The limelight hydrangeas are starting to turn pink and then they'll go brown but not for a little while longer.

These Bandana Red Lantana have been spectacular all summer!  No maintenance either!

This plant draws butterflies!

I have really enjoyed these nonstop Mocca orange begonias.  I definitely want to grow them again next year!

Again my phone camera struggled with the intensity of the sunlight on the flower- just gorgeous!

Behind our property it drops off along a big hill and goes into a large field that goes on quite a ways.  The sun is lighting everything but the woods surrounding us creates a canopy of shade.

There was a dew on everything since the evenings have been dropping into the mid 50's to low 60's at night.  The benches and stones are often wet so it's not always inviting to set out here this early.

These wax begonias did great- no maintenance other than water and some fertilizer.  Can't go wrong!

Another brief moment of sunshine was falling on these impatience.

This is the other side of it.  The foxtail ferns have all but disappeared into the menagerie of plants!

From the house I watch the sun dance across my hostas.

Thank you for visiting!



  1. Beautiful scenery, Liz! Your flowers and garden looks so lovely!

  2. It's a pretty September morn in your garden, Liz. Lovely flowers into fall always makes me happy. We've had some wild weather today with tornado warnings and tons of rain! Some of it is from Florence bands. Kind of scary...I'm glad you are enjoying lovely early autumn days.♥

  3. Liz, what a gorgeous morning stroll in your gardens. The lantana, zinnias, celosia, and the begonias are all just stunning, the light was just perfect. Thank you so much for sharing all of your beautiful posts to Gardens Galore,

  4. Thank you Liz for a morning tour in your gardens. You still have lots of color that is beautiful especially in the sunlight. Wondering what you do with your plants that can’t survive the winter? Do you bring them in or have a green house?

  5. Oh my!How adorable!!!It is a pleasure stopping by!

  6. Lovely, as always Liz. Those orange tuberous begonias are something else. Perhaps you should try overwintering them. I sure enjoyed my visit.

  7. Oh Liz your gardens are so beautiful. I just swoon over your pics. We are having some hot weather again this past weekend and today. Tomorrow one more hot day and then we are suppose to get to more fall like temps. I hope so. I am ready.
    Hugs and Happy New Week.

  8. The light for these photos is just perfect. Loving all the orange, too!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
