Fall garden.

Today is 'Outdoor Wednesday" be sure and visit http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/. and see the fun everyone is up to.
Thank you to our Susuan for being a wonderful Hostess for this fun "Outdoor Wednesday", everyone is so creative.
Today I'm doing a tour of my backyard outdoor space.....This is the last of my plants that I have outside.

Pinky purple Fuschia.......even with zero temperatures here in The Great White North this plant is still thriving.

Yellow mums..........this is the last of them. Next week I don't think they will be around.

My Garden plaques behind some English Ivy. Soon they will be cleaned and put back into the garage to come out next spring.

This lil' lady I call her hangs on the side of my garage........and yes I put an artificial fern in there. That's the only thing that will grow in there without my help.
This lil' cherub is over 100 years old and comes from an old home somewhere in England. I actually have two of them and they are about 4 feet tall on pedestals. I keep them outside all year long, becuase if they stood all time then I need not worry.

When my parents passed away a week apart my husband and daughter bought this for me in memory of them. A lil' angel sitting on its own bench.

This gal holds some begonia's in the summer time that I plant.

These are my Garden Gnomes and The Seven Dwarfs............my husband still has to clean them and put them away. He put them together in one spot but as you can see looks like they had a Civil War in the garden. This was due to the Racoons, squirrels, chipmunks etc........coming around and actually moving them around............... especially that big Racoon, he is very bad. He flips trash cans and moves lawn furniture at night. I guess he's hungry. Well firstly I shouldn't leave him food sometimes, becuase if he can't find any and I forget he gets mad.

My froggy among some Lavender.

My snail and mushroom among the veggie patch.........well it use to be before.

Thanks for stooping by and be sure to visit the other participants.
I love comments so don't forget to leave some.
