Last post .........

These vines WANT YOU !!
The Boys in the 'Hood waking up
Crickets chirping with the birds in the still of the morning is one wonderful way to take in your garden : )

A head for of horns from my Stag Horn Sumac

Tiger Eye Sumac is eye candy ?
I have an overwhelming urge to pop these balloon flowers !!
The "Ghost" and Fred ...
Toad lilies filling up with buds ....
"Bunchberries" AND Wintergreen ... some one said I didn't have BUNCHBERRIES ?!!!!
Thank heavens for the cool nights and some needed rain ... ahhhhhhhhh !

Perhaps the last post from my lap top ?

I hope you get a new laptop. Your garden looks so pretty. My garden is about to dry up.

Darla said...

Beautiful garden views Joy!!

Lona said...

What do you mean your last post? Girl you cannot go anywhere! LOL! Your garden is looking so pretty and so are the boys. LOL!

Grace said...

Why perhaps the last post from your laptop? Just curious. If it's in reference to summer almost being over, well, perish the thought!! I love that you show wide-views of your garden. You've got an oasis to die for and it's good that you show it off.

Last post? Are those vines eating your laptop? Hope all is well.

Hello Lisa girl : )
I'm sorry you are having such a dry spell .. we went through that for the month of July and it was bad .. thankfully we have had rain and cool nights for a week or so and it has helped so much !
I graduated to a "big girl" computer and it is scary changing over! LOL

Thanks Darla girl .. the rain and cool nights have helped a lot .. hope the show for Autumn will be a great one with the leaves .. can't wait !

Lona girl the boys are totally laughing their butts off being called pretty ! hehehehe
But the garden is gracious and thanks you : )
I'm just going through "growing pains" with switching over to a proper computer and now in the dining room .. next move will be the office I dream of ? LOL

Thanks Grace girl .. I am running between the lap top and this big screen scary computer trying to get myself sorted .. it is weird after working from a laptop for over 4 years or more now ... then when i get my garden office .. WOW !! I'll be in nirvana !!!

Freda girl too funny but you could be so right .. those vines are aggressive and take no prisoners!!
Just the change over making me skittish .. information over load?
Thanks girl : )

Thank you JayLeigh .. I just hope we don't slide into another drought .. summer should be winding down now !

Wow Joy, your sumac is so gorgeous. Everything looks great, I was worried for a moment when I saw your thread title, glad it's just with regards to the laptop!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Thank you Rebecca girl : )
Having some rain and cooler nights have saved the garden some stress .. I hope the heat doesn't really come back to the way it was last month .. that is just too hot ! and .. it is time for Autumn to start stretching out its fingers ! LOL

Gorgeous garden shots! Glad you're enjoying some cooler weather there too.

Last of the laptop? and on to the bigtop, right?! Big computer, that is! Have fun with it!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Aerie-el girl this is just a small break before the heat returns I am sure but I am so grateful for it as is the garden .. and YES ! it is fun with a new system ... as long as i don't get crazy trying to customize it to ME ? LOL
