First Fall Finds.........

Even though we are only 70 miles from the Gulf of Mexico....it's feeling like fall today!
Cool, dark, windy and stormy looking....

The Chick Prisoners are out and browsing around so I thought I would browse around too...


Found this patch of Mushrooms under the Pines.....


Maybe they are edible as it looks like someone has been nibbling the right one...

A Butterfly?
A Flower Petal?
You're guess is as good as mine....
DON'T EVEN......

Strange find....this Wegila is supposed to bloom in Spring....beats me!

White Rose of Sharon(Althea) is pretty.....


Hardy Hibiscus is 10 foot tall and only one bloom on it...........



Ahhhh Gardenias....heavenly smell


Green Garden, turnips, collards, spinach and kale....we'll be eating this soon!


Have a great rest of the week !!

I've had thing bloomin' at odd times this year too.

My hibiscus usually is finished shortly after the Fourth of July and the dang thing is still bloomin' as is my crepe myrtle and some other oddities. I'm totally enjoyin' the splendor though.

God bless ya and have a glorious fall day sweetie!!!

Wow---that is one tall Hibiscus. Some of our Roses get tall like that....

Love Gardenias... That was my favorite flower in high school --and I chose it for my Sr. prom. It was a wrist corsage.

We have a gorgeous Fall day up here today --after the rains of yesterday...

Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks for showing around the place. I try again and again to keep gardenias. And I fail every time. We are just not in the zone here so I plant a new one each spring. It's worth it to see it grow and smell the fragrance.

Good looking greens! We had a mess of collards and kale from my fall garden a few days ago.

Beautiful blooms. My gardenias have only bloomed once this summer and I keep hoping for more blooms because I love the smell of their flowers.
I am sorry I have not been over in a while. I have been so behind with blogging visits.
Belated Happy Birthday and love your new bath redo

I take some spinach please,but will eat most anything green if cooked. I don't care for many foods raw.

In SD there is evidence of Autumn in their canyons. The ash trees definitely are turning in Spearfish Canyon. On the way home in Minnesota and Iowa sumac was in its glory. Other trees were beginning to turn.

Just found you on Betsy from Tennessee's blog and wanted to say hello because we have so many common interests: writing, reading, dogs, genealogy, the Gulf Coast (I live near Baton Rouge). I currently have three blogs, a general one similar to yours, a specific one geared toward owners of blind dogs, and a brand new photo blog. I noticed that you also have a book-review blog. I had one, too, for a while, but found that writing about the books ate into my reading time too much. I'm happy to have found you here.
