Last Look at Front Garden of 2012

Before all this gets covered in leaves and then snow, I thought I'd take one last look.
                                         Eek! a bear!
This will probably still be fine for the fall.  They like the cooler weather.
Those lamb's ears just took over this year.  Must remember to thin them out.
I told this clover that I didn't mind it growing on my gravel path if it didn't mind if I walk on it.
Some of these will be coming into the house for the winter, but I'll wait until the weather guy says so.
Another lasting cool weather plant.  (From Wild Thyme Plants and Gifts)  owned by my friend Eileen.
I wonder if this guy will need to come in.  Probably.
This wine half barrel will not be coming into the house..
The hydrangea on the right will need to be cut back, but it will return next spring.
After living for over 40 years in southern CA, I had to learn to garden all over again.

                               Front porch.

These Black-Eyed Susans? have run their course, but look!  They have already reseeded and are growing more!

Hi Lynn!

Looks like you had a great growing season this summer. I know it's hard to put your plands to bed for the winter but they need their rest.

I used to live in the Seattle area and the first frost would come in late September. I sure miss my English garden...

Here in the desert I will soon be getting my flower garden platnted. All my pots died in July :(

It always surprises me when the plants give off their last hurrah before winter comes.
Do you have luck when moving stuff in? I never have. What are your secrets? I have a lovely begonia that I would like to keep.
