Fall Flower Bed

Been scarce around here lately. Had a good excuse. I've been removing all of my summer flower beds making room for the fall / winter plants and flowers. I think it's turning out nice. A few more trips ( fill the truck bed up) to Home Depot, lacking a few Pumpkins, Mum's because of a rouge snail keeps eating the tops! I should be done with it soon.

I'm so jealous. My winter garden only has white plants. Most people call them snowdrifts!

LOL!!!

I'm so ready for winter. It's been in the high 90's to 102 here this week. Enough is enough. Time for some new colors.

Very pretty, just love the cyclamen!

To deter slugs, try slug repellant tape which is copper. Or slug rings from Amazon, though this is the UK site, you might find similar . We use slug rings on our daliahs and kept the beasts off.

Cyclamens outdoors! I've never seen that before. Around here the only winter garden is evergreens and the one indoors.
