"Falling" For The Patio
This morning I was looking out the patio doors, and I thought: Shoot, I haven't done anything fall out on my big outdoor space, which I consider an extension of my apartment. And what convinced me to rent it in the first place.
I've just about talked myself into splurging on a few kale plants, and maybe some more pansies, to fill in where summer's annuals have spluttered out.
See the leaves in the bird bath? They are starting to fall, folks!
Now if I could just get some birds to stay in place for a few seconds when I'm sitting outside so I could snap some pics, I would be a happy camper.
Fickle little wrens hop-hoppity-hop all over the place without more than a second in one spot.
It is the time of year when ornamental grasses do their thing. This is why I always like to have them in my gardens. They put on quite a show in the fall.
I have cut off some of the golden pennies/creeping jenny growing in the bowels of the driftwood and pushed them into other plants. They're usually easy to get started if it isn't too hot.
