This was a quick glimpse of a morning sky a couple of days ago .. these beauties are a bit rare lately with the changing weather .. wonderful rain watered my garden today and that makes me *SMILE* big time .. thank you rain !
I have only one pumpkin on the step .. I have to set the bar a lot higher soon because it IS my favorite time of year running towards me .. wanting a bear hug and enthusiasm from me !!!
So .. for now this is a simple post of Toad Lily and Anemone .. just enjoy : )

Joy, I almost bought a Toad Lily the other day at the nursery but I purchased Pulmanaria and Hellebore instead. Now, this is something I will have to add to my shade list.

I am redoing the north side of my house, giving some hosta away and putting in some more interesting plants.

I swear you have the most beautiful skies, Joy! Your pink toad lilies and anemones aren't bad either:)

I guess I'd better get busy and get some pumpkins--tomorrow is October already!

Hi Eileen ! I'm interested to hear which ones you bought with the pulmonaria and especially the hellebore (a weakness of mine : )
Yes ! you have to have some toad lilies in your garden .. revamping the garden always puts me in the mood for new plants too !

Hey Debbie girl : ) how are ya'!
Toad lilies are amazing flowers .. so much like an orchid I think .. and since I kill those poor things (orchids, it is better to stick with the TL ! haha
