Hello again, everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. I awoke this morning with the sun streaming through my window, and after a week of rain, I was overjoyed. Then, I saw the white frost blanketing my gardens. We have officially had our first hard frost here in northern Michigan. Today, I said good-bye to summer and another growing season. This inevitable day is always hard for me every year, so today I want to celebrate what was my summer garden, and share one last look at it with you.
This is my little metal chandelier I have hanging from the tree branch above my rose iron bistro table and chair set.
An old bicycle with a burlap-lined basket is packed with impatiens. Clematis vine twines around the bicycle wheel.
A Carpet Rose variety. Although very thorny, it is hardy and blooms all summer long!
I picked up this chippy, wicker plant stand at a garage sale for a couple dollars! The pink impatiens match my pink porch chairs.
Thank-you for joining me on one last stroll through my summer garden. I hope you have enjoyed yourself as much as I have. Although bittersweet, today turned out to be a beautiful fall day.
