Front Garden Goodbye!

Front Garden Goodbye



This post is my front garden goodbye! I enjoy my front entrance with all the colors. I realize this is now short-lived with fall upon us. It seems so sad that just when they get mature and at their peak, the frost comes and ends it all! Thought I’d give you an end of summer tour before it all goes away.

It’s hard to say goodbye to these little hummingbirds! They come to the window to tell me when one of the feeders is empty! Yes, they do that!

 Also, hard to say goodbye to the beautiful butterflies that visit here!

  1. I know how you feel! I always hate to see the first frost. Thanks for sharing on The Creative Home & Garden Hop…hope to see you again today!

  2. Yes, its sad isnt it. All the work that goes into the garden. It seems to pass so quickly and I still have loads to do before snow. Yours still looks great. I live in Michigan so wont be long, we already had frost

    • We are on the verge of a frost, but we’ve been lucky so far! Won’t be long, however! I enjoy every day that it is there!

  3. Our hummingbirds chew me out if their feeder is empty! They will fly right up to me and just chirp their little heads off. Thanks for sharing at Tuesdays with a Twist. Can’t wait to see what you share this week.

  4. Beautiful! Next year (I keep saying that!) I’ll have a prettier yard!

    When I clicked on your link, I was afraid that you had a garden you were getting rid of. Glad to know it’s just the seasonal thing!

  5. Simply gorgeous! Love all your colors!! Darn frost, always has to come and ruin the party 🙁

    • Yes, I’m afraid it is coming soon. Last night was 40 degrees!

  6. What a lovely garden! I especially love your photos of the hummingbird and butterfly! Thank you for sharing at Tuesdays with a Twist! – Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    • Thank you! Already the hummingbirds have left! Must mean something is coming!

  7. Your garden is stunning and I love it. My heart is in my garden also. Although I can garden all year living in So CA. just some of the flower change but the roses bloom all year round.; Try to have something blooming all year.
    I am your newest follower – stop by and see garden.

    • What a wonderful climate to have something blooming all year! It isn’t bad to have a rest from watering and deadheading, however! Thank you for your nice comment!

  8. What a beautiful garden you have. I really enjoyed the tour!

  9. You have such a beautiful garden. I’ve decided to redo my front garden this summer. I got the hardscape done, but now I’m sitting with a big pile of dirt where a garden should be. You’ve given me lots of great ideas here. I’ll just have to remember them for next spring. Thanks for sharing this with Let’s Get Real. You must be the envy of all your friends.

    • I do like color so there are lots of annuals in with the hostas. The hostas are called Guacamole and they can take some sun without lookiing terrible. I first tried Patriot, but they look scrappy at the end of the season so out they went to another place! Good luck planning and hope your garden turns out to be beautiful! I’m sure it will!

  10. So beautiful! I hope to have a garden like that one day. 🙂

  11. Absolutely beautiful! You are amazing—-what I want to know is what energy drink or vitamins you take to accomplish all that you do with excellence. I have 5 grandkids for a couple of days and it takes a week to recover!

    • It takes less energy with a garden than with grandkids! That’s for sure!


    • Thank you! It is fairly maintenance free except for watering!
