la de da



Ok, it may be a "la de da" day just looking out the window on this sunless day in October... but once outside curiosity takes over...I must explore.
Aah...it's still wondrous to me.

  1. All wonderful, Patsi. And your foliage is even dry! Amazing. Great captures and you have made your point. Still much going on in your garden, regardless of fall/winter racing towards us.

  3. It is amazing what you can find going on in the garden if you get out and look. I love the evergreen with the berries (?) picture.

  4. Frances,
    No rain lately. Must get out there more often(and learn to check my blog before posting..ha).
    And of course a few chores are needed.

    Pam,

    Catherine,
    Shame I've been so lazy lately...tired I guess.
    It's a Yew but don't know what kind.

  7. Beautiful photos. They focus the attention on things our eyes often miss when scanning the garden. Sometimes texture is as pretty as color.

  11. Hi Patsi!! I'm wondering about the photo that has us looking up into some spiky round (seedpods?). What is this? Great post! You are very creative! :-)

    It's Chameleon Houttuynia..like ivy but not invasive in this area.

    Shady,
    It's a Red Caster Bean plant that's 8+ feet tall. Seeds from Victoria.
    Not so creative lately...oh well.

  13. Patsi, I love the castor plant whenever I see them but have never tried to grow them due to their hugmongous growth! The last photo has great color combo ;)
    I'm in sunny Calif. right now and it's going to be soooo hard to return to the cold in a few days!

  19. Great photos. We sometimes forget how important foliage is to a garden. It's not all about flowers.

  20. "La de Da" is the perfect description of this time of year. Like you I can't hardly stay inside yet I can't make myself do much outside either. I did get most of the plants into the house before the frost this week. I just hate to have all of these plants in the house yet I can't stand the thought of them freezing to death. So we just cozy up and try to enjoy each other through the winter.
