My garden is still blooming!

Pin It Now!

The leaves are changing color and falling but my flowers are still blooming! Soon it will be too cold for the impatiens and I will replace them with pansies and violas which grow here in the winter.
The HGTV Rate my Space episode I was on is going to be rerun tomorrow (for the last time), Saturday, November 8th at 5:30 PM (but check your listing because it may be on at a different time, the episode name is "A Romantic Cabana with an Island Vibe").  

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

As usual such a pretty picture and I love the pink. Your garden is sooo lovely. It must be so relaxing to come home after a long day to such beautiful surroundings. You really posted early today. Hope you have a great weekend.

You sure live in a lovely place that are able to have flowers out at this time of the year. Here it was freezing cold earlier this week and my flowers froze!! Not much to do about it when you are too lazy to get them inside LOL.
I hope you have a nice and energetic weekend.
Love Elzie

Hi Cindy,
Your garden is lovely! It must be wonderful to have a garden all year round.
Enjoy your weekend.


Lisa said...

I finally got to see the episode the last time it was on. So exciting to see you and your cottage in living color! You did a fantastic job and should be so proud.

I am so jealous of the garden. We have already slipped into very cold weather and even snow. I am already longing for flowers. Sigh.

Another great example of the
beauty you create and share with
others. Impatiens are my favorite.
Have a fabulous weekend. Mimi

Joanne Kennedy said...

Oh I love when we can plant the winter flowers. They are so pretty and colorful.

They will be darling in your garden.


Jan and Tom's Place said...

Lucky you!! Still having a blooming garden! My garden's been done for a couple of weeks already! And nothing grows HERE in Michigan in winter...except icicles!!!

I just completed a painting project...if you have a second, stop by and take a peek at my Show & Tell post.


Pink Slippers said...

We too are blooming here. I love it. It's like finding little surprises. Pretty blooms that make me smile.

Glenda said...

Do you add Miracle Grow when you water ?

My roses are not blooming anymore, nor is anything else. So I guess that's it for me, except the christmas cactus that will bloom soon.

You have a great weekend as well.


Terri and Bob said...

Ooo Cindy, thank you for the heads up... I have a football game to go to but I will Tivo it! The flowers are lovely!

Thanks for the reminder about your RMS date/time. I just set my DVR to record it.

I'm going to gush again about how much I love your blog! It's a daily treat for me to check in to see if you have done a post.

I'm getting closer to finishing my blog draft. I hope to publish it soon. But I'll never measure up to all you clever, talented and witty Blogland women.

I brought in two flats of beautiful pixy-faced pansies last weekend. And I've been potting them up all week. I just love pansies!

Hi Cindy
Your flowers and garden are beautiful.
You are lucky to have nice weather year round. We are down to freezing at night.

Hi Cindy,
Thank you for your sweet comment.... I'm a little embarrassed I haven't been for a visit in a while....I will get a glass of wine later and catch up on your lovely blog....
I hope you do start a slip cover project....I just took my time and sewed only when I was in the mood...when ever you are ready I will give you all the tips I found along the way. Believe it or wasen't really that bad....
Your impatiens look great...I think it's a California thing...Mine are doing great as well.....
Take care,
Mo :-)

Ann said...

Oh what a nice garden image very colorful. I'm just starting to build/make mine.

maggie said...

Oh you are so lucky to still have such lovely flowers. Mine are nearly all gone and will soon be covered in a blanket of snow. Spring comes late and fall comes early and winter lasts a long time so we have a short time to enjoy our flowers. We have to get enjoyment from looking at these beauties in the gardens of people like you.

Hi Cindy
Your flowers are just beautiful.

Have a nice weekend!!!

My Petite Maison said...

Hi Cindy,
Love your garden (especially the burro's tail, that is my all time favorite passed on by a dear friend). I would love, love, love to visit you one of these times I'm in Los Gatos/Santa Cruz ~ Your house/garden is amazing.

That's great they're replaying your episode, can you believe it - I still have my episode stored on Tivo?

Have a wonderful weekend sweets!

I am enjoying your pretty blog this afternoon. In Georgia, we still have some late roses blooming and they still are just as fragrant as ever. I love the photo of the shelf that your dad made. I'll be back to visit soon.

Very pretty. Looked out the window this morning, at what is left of my impatients. Pretty sad looking. I think it is suppose to be in the 30's tonight, so that will do them in for sure.

I'm glad to have some azaleas growing in our yard right now. Our fall color is gorgeous; I hope the leaves will hang on for a few more weeks!

Mary said...

Oh how beautiful! we have nothing but autumn leaves and berries here, and they will be gone soon. :(
