It is  beautiful day today!  Cloudy, rainy and cool!  Yes I said beautiful.  We have had so many warm days and no rain that this is wonderful for my flowers.  I don't have a lot of fall beauties but wanted to share the photos I took the other day in my yard.
The colors of this glorious tree are hard to catch
It is some sort of Hydranga plant that looks like a tree and it was here. when we bought the house.  It makes me so happy as I turn into my driveway.  
They will turn many colors as they dry out
Also in the front yard
This one sunflower plant.  I didn't think it had lived but suddenly there were some sunflowers!  Small but beautiful!
I hope I have more next year...I will plan better

A few blooms left on the Butterfly Bush
One gorgeous bloom on my rose!  Looks like something is eating it's leaves.  Maybe my rose growing friends can help me. 
I am such a novice gardener.  This was also here when we bought the house.  I love the color.
 Anyone know what this one is called?
These have made their way here...birds?  

Now to the back yard deck garden
I love this color
I will be buying more Mums for the front porch
This one little bloom on a mark down plant
isn't it intersting
It is called a shrimp plant and had a little white part of the flower that makes it look like a shrimp.  I saw that today but it is rainy so didn't photograph it. 

That's the Fall Flowers in my yard!  I am linking up with 
You must visit her and see the pumpkin topiary she made!

Happy Fall Ya'll!  
(couldn't resist)

That hydrangea is huge and you still have some nice flowers blooming. Mine are basically gone except for a couple of pots. I am so ready for mums and pansies. Now that it is getting cooler it should be safe to get some.

The white and purple flowers are called Vinca, sometimes they are used as a groundcover. I love the hydranga and it's so nice your stuff is still blooming......even my hosta has dried up!

gail said...

I think the tree hydrangeas are PG hydrangea. I want to get one for my front yard. They are so pretty!
Everything looks pretty, Linda and I agree it's supposed to rain here tonight and I sure hope it does!

Linda said...

Beautiful flowers...I would love to have a hydrangea bush like that!

Pondside said...

What a lot of beautiful colour you have in your fall garden. My garden is fading, with all the rain. but there's still a dash or two of colour left.

Debbie said...

I have never in my life seen such a large Hydrangea...wish I could come pick a few and dry them...I love that look. All so pretty Linda!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Hydrangeas of any kind are long gone here - just to hot and dry this Summer. You still have some many pretty blooming flowers. thanks for sharing.

Everything looks happy and healthy-enjoy!

Marla said...

Linda, love all your fall flowers. I am glad to know the name of the Shrimp plant, I see those daily when I am walking in the neighborhood, they are towering over my head, so cool looking. I guess they are sort of a tropical flower. Bulldog country! Yes I am aware of this part of the world, so sorry to hear that. LOL seriously the Bulldogs need to get some action going!! Go Gators! Where are you in GA? north or south? Hugs, Marla

Sarah said...

Linda, that tree is gorgeous. How nice to have that to welome you each time you pull into your driveway. We are enjoying some cool temps here in central TX. It's so nice to have the doors and windows open with the fresh cool air. ~ Sarah

Your garden looks amazing for this time of the year. Mine is pretty parched. Love the hydrangea tree. I have one that is very similar. I think yours is a tad bit larger.

Thanks so much for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

Hi Linda...GORGEOUS! The rose, especially, is stunning. Take care. Susan

Gina said...

Such beautiful blooms! I would love to have that hydrangea tree...what a beauty.


Hi Linda,
Thank you for your prayers for my daughter :)
Lovely hydrangea tree!!! You have many pretty flowers in your yard. Love your new banner too!

Julie Harward said...

Wow, you have lots of unusual plants and they are so pretty! Love the color of that rose! :D

Anita said...

Well, I have been trying to find out what the name of that particular tree is because I love it. I have to get those flowers from the family graveyard my grandparents are buried in. It looks like a hydrangea, wish I knew exactly what it is too! Anyway...yours is beautiful and I bet you really enjoy watching those colors change!

Mimi said...

Your hydrangea tree is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

Diann said...

Oh, how beautiful to still see these gorgeous colors around your yard Linda! I really need to get some mums to spruse up the yard around here!

My name is PJ. said...

The last gasps of the summer growing season sure are pretty.

Ann in the UP said...

Amazingly I've still got a huge pot of impatiens sheltered on my deck. I think you've given me the urge to get some cheery mums though. They looks so pretty!

Sherry from Alabama said...

Oh, yes, Alabama is getting some of that cool, rainy weather too and it's such a relief! Your flowers are wonderful! It's amazing how the flowers bounce back with just a little moisture. I saw someone already mentioned that the pink and white flowers are Vinca. I plant lots of those because they are heat and draught tolerant.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a sweet comment while I was gone camping. It was so nice to come home to messages from my friends. Hope you have a wonderful new week!

Beautiful flowers! We have two hydrangea trees like yours. I just cut off the blooms and they dry without any water and last until next year. I have a huge basket filled with them just this morning.

Happy fall to you as well.


Traci said...

Your tree is gorgeous! I love all of your flowers too. I always buy mums & love how they look but I cannot keep them alive!!

~~Carol~~ said...

Wow Linda, you still have alot of pretties to look at! Not much happening here, and I think I'm done watering the annuals. Let the rain take care of it now. It was one hot and dry summer, and I'm lovin' Fall!
Happy Monday!

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

So pretty! Wish I would remember to take pics when the flowers are blooming. Just yesterday I noticed the rose of sharon are almost all done. I forget to enjoy them sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

Annesphamily said...

Your yard looks wonderful. I love the rain, I wish we would get some! Hugs Anne

Queenie said...

Hey Linda,
Your flowers are all so beautiful and I know each and every one of them makes you smile :)

As always I loved seeing the treasures you came home with... and the summer and fall tablescapes were both so pretty in the posts down below...I can't even pick which one I like best...lovely job on both :)
I hope you have a sweet week....
Big Hugs,
