1 of 10 Things I Love in No Particular Order

There is a fun little game going around Blogland called "10 things I love". I was invited by two wonderful blogs, The Ark Cottage Garden  and  The Whimsical Gardener. (Check them out!)

Here are the rules:
1) Inform who invited you
2) List 10 things you like to do (or love)
3) Invite another 10 other bloggers to do the same.

I am going to do this just a bit different and post each of the ten items one at a time. This way I can be long winded and show lots of pictures of each! I will try to keep it garden related to stick with the theme of my blog.

So here goes.....#1: Fall
The air turns crisp. The leaves transform into beautiful colors. And gardeners can relax, enjoy the show and start to plan for next year.  

 October Glory living up to the name.

This is a trumpet vine that seemed 
to turn almost iridescent this fall.

More October Glory Foliage

Time for the aster to bloom. This one has become massive and has amazed me by not drooping this year. I bought a metal support at the Dollar Store and it did an incredible job of holding it up. 
Well worth a buck!
Ok, so I'm milking the October Glory. 
I can't help it. I love it!

Speaking of "love", this Colocasia had me at "hello and how much!" It doesn't matter, even though it was a great deal at Fry Road Nursery I would have paid much more! (Shhh...don't tell them that!)

One last shot of the October Glory.

Feel free to join in the "10 Things I love Game." 
It's fun!
