A stroll through my garden this morning!

The weather in the mornings is much cooler here now. I am not usually home but due to my accident I am recouping at home for a few days. I decided to take my mug of tea (and the ever present straw) outside to the courtyard for some fresh air and sun! As I said I'm not usually outside at this time of the morning and shadows and sunshine fall diffently. I decided to take some pictures to show you. Come along with me...

Here is my little garden fairy I brought with me from NJ when I moved to Charlotte 6 years ago. I gave her I nice new coat of paint this summer.



Here is my red hanging geranium. I think this is it's last blast of color! It is so bright and beautiful!


I happened to look at the fence and my neighbor's wistera drapes over the fence into our courtyard. I so an unexpected surprise! There was one wisteria blossom blooming and in the next picture is the bumblebee that thought it was a nice unexpected surprise too!




I have a double red camellia, which is starting to form buds! I love this camellia.


The herbs are just beautiful this time of year. My mint and rosemary loves this weather as you can see!





This hosta plant was new this year and it just love the cool mornings I guess because it is getting all new leaves. A little piece of my ivy is trailing down from the main plant.


The Lamb's Ears are coming back in full force too now that the hotter temps are cooling off too.


This ivy plant has doubled in size this year!


My palm tree has to come in the house in a month or so. I thought this frond looked so graceful this morning so I thought I would share it with y'all!


On Saturday John bought this beautiful African Violet for me at Pike's Nursery. It is a beautiful shade of purple. I guess it likes its new surroundings!






I hope you liked my garden stroll this morning! Enjoy your day!!

Hi Sherri,
I just read your past posts to see what had happened. How scary that accident must have been. I'm sorry to hear that you are having health problems because of it.
You are wise to rest and relax. Your garden looks like a lovely place to spend time in as your body heals.

Hello Sherri! Thank you for stopping by! I so love to meet new friends! I was born in Charlotte and that is about as long as I stayed there - but, I do have family in the surrounding area. You have marvelous pictures - I love Wisteria - it is long gone here. Things are calming down now - so looking forward to Fall.
I hope you recover quickly!
God Bless,
Kathy

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
