Autumn as you may remember is my favorite time of year. I thought I would show you some of the seasonal changes around Creekside Cottage.
I love when the leaves are turning...we are not at peak yet, maybe another week.
I love these tall trees - a Red Oak and a huge Sugar Maple... we are thinking of this area for a picnic spot.
Here the littles run toward those trees. They have a spot across the creek from here that they call "Emily's House" since Emily found the spot. They love to play there on a fallen tree.
One of my Red Sunset Maples in the front yard. When we moved here there were no trees in the front yard. We planted two maples and a Cleveland Pear in the side yard.
These mums came from a friends garden. She got me started at this house by sharing many plants from her gorgeous perennial garden!
This is in the garden near my front door. I put the birdbath with the candle out for the tea on Monday so that it would be more welcoming for those coming up the front walk. I don't know if they noticed such things, but I think of these small touches and like to do them.
This is a design Emily made...I helped her cut some of the stars out - it looks awesome at night.
We were supposed to go to co-op today, but we had many families with sickness and so we decided to cancel. The upside to this was that I got to spend time with Tim while he and my dad and the girls worked on the barn. It is coming along and is almost completely under roof! Not too bad for doing it yourself!
I hope you enjoyed a visit to our garden....
