With a gentle fall rain and cooler temperatures, I can really see
signs of Autumn in the air.

Clusters of Fall colour I place around the house.

Spiders busy making webs.

Many of the annuals and perennial setting seed.

Some of the Fall bulbs for next Springs colour

Flats of Pansies, Ornamental Cabbage and Kale sprouted
soon to go out in the garden

The fall Asters starting to bloom.

The garden starting to be filled with berries.

The Maples showing their Autumn colour.

Great post Bob! I see that you like thinking and planning ahead in the garden. Lovely pics of autumn colour and of a nice itsybitsy spider as well.

Nice post! I like your spider, and your bulbs remind me that I have a few coming in the mail soon. Usually, I'm kinds burned out by now but this year has been so hot that all I ever really did was water stuff. I'm really looking forward to cooler temps so I can get some work done!

Love all of your fall pictures!!

I noticed a cool down yesterday and boy does it feel good!!!! I am honored you added me to your blog roll! I noticed the spider as well, I have an abundance of writing spiders. I was thinking about putting in some new bulbs, but haven't chosen a particular type.. Now that it is getting cooler, I better get thinking.

Yolanda, glad you stopped by. Thank you for the kind words.

Lisa, You have had a hot summer. I look forward to seeing what bulbs are blooming in your garden next year.

Laurie and Chris, I always appreciate you warm thoughts.

Dirty fingers, would love to hear what bulbs you selected. I get the bulk of mine at box stores and costco. They are cheap and seem to preform will for me.

I am seeing the signs in my garden also. The mums are starting to open and the back yard needs to be mowed not because the grass is long but to get the leaves off. I haven't bought any bulbs yet. Mom is going to dig up some of hers for me so I might wait to see what I get from her. Thanks for sharing you beautiful pictures of fall. Cliff

Great to see the bulbs you've selected. For the first time I have bought hyacinths, even though I sneeze like crazy when I am around them. I didn't buy pastels though I like the colors you've selected much more now that I see those. I've got a few more allium sensations to put in place. Saw in a garden magazine how they planted them between the phlox and it looked great, so I may try that. Andrea

Boy, isn't that the truth about spiders this time of year! I try not to walk under trees if I can help it. EVery time I do, I run into a creepy crawly.

It took me back a bit to think you were starting plants to put out soon. We wouldn't think of doing that here until April or so! ;-)

Have you ever tried fritillaria?
