Colorful Autumn

There have been a lot of robins, as well as a few cedar waxwings, enjoying the purple beautyberries.

Splendor in my yard and garden - this is a young maple.

The flowering dogwood is pink in the spring, and burgundy now.

Blueberry bush

'Rozanne' is still blooming prolifically.

The nasturtiums are in a protected area and still looking good.

Tortie has the prettiest coloring. Notice the white spot in the center of the orangey spot on her neck - she is adorable, and we love her very much.

Now, some SPOOK-TACULAR pets from a Halloween party for dogs...Boston terriers first dog as a child was a Boston, "Tinker."

Who says dogs don't smile?

One word:  ADORABLE!

Happy Halloween!

Linking to Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time.



  1. I can't believe your Nasturtiums are still blooming Beth, ours would have faded in the summer heat! The pups are all cute, love the cheerleader:@)

  2. The dogs are adorable! I am still waiting for the full leaf fall, lots still left on our trees. We may get a frost tonight so there will not be much left after that.


  3. How cute... those are corgis aren't they... I've always particularly enjoyed seeing them since seeing Tasha Tudor's in various media. Your garden is still very colorful... and what gives with the robins... they are still here as well, and us with the expectation of a hard winter... perhaps it will hold off for awhile, although my rancher buddy in Colorado called me this morning from horseback and informed me it was 15 degrees! Ouch!
    Take care, Larry

  4. I am amazed that flowers are still blooming! Those doggies are the cutest! xo

  5. All my flowers are gone except a few roses!
    I have to say that last photo of the doggie witch just melts my heart. How adorable. What a fun idea to have a party for the pets for animal lovers. Have a great weekend!

  6. I love those lovely dogs, just like ornamental dogs!

  7. Lovely color - fall never ceases to amaze me!

  8. Hi Beth
    The colour from the blueberry leaves is vivid and Rozanne is my favourite - she keeps going even in the snow.
    Cute dogs, although the first two don't look too happy.

  9. What a sweet post! I love the dogs in their costumes!

  10. Love all your fall photos and the doggie costumes are so cute. Having a hard time trying to get caught up on everyone, but I am determined to have it done this weekend!

  11. Tortie is gorgeous!!! all your fur babies are!!!
    It does my heart good to tour around the gardens that are linked into my little party...I so wish every one of the people who share lived close enough that I could walk the gardens in person. Thank you so much for sharing with me this week...I hope you will again very soon!
    I am sharing this post on my Facebook page for Tootsie Time
    Hugs and smiles from Alberta Canada to you!

  13. We just love the fall colors. That dogwood is beautiful!

    Tortie, you sure are a pretty cat. We agree with Beth, your colors are the prettiest in the whole garden. :)

    So nice to see those dogs all dressed up, too. Happy Halloween!

  14. You have the best garden Beth!
    The colors are just amazing!
    I am sorry about the travel party, it's a job getting a party going,one I have never took on.
    Love the puppy costume pics too!
    Hugs friend,

  15. Oh, we almost forgot, we looked at the picture of Razzle, and you are right ... she is TOTALLY Pepper's twin! :) Love it!
