A Fall Morning in the Garden


| 10/19/2010 3:34:44 PM


Every now and then I am struck by the seasonal beauty of Cowlick Cottage Farm.  This morning I was up and out early with my camera and a cup of pumpkin spice coffee so that I could share some of the scenes with you.  The sun is just up and peeking through the mist.  Come on a stroll with me and enjoy!

Pecan grove

The pecan grove belongs to my neighbors, but we love its ancient rows of moss-covered trees, as well as the pecans that drop over the fence.

Jalepeno peppers add color.

The jalapeno peppers are still coming on strong.  They add beautiful fall color to the garden and the table.

Hi Della: I'm so glad you enjoyed a morning stroll through the garden--I feel closer to God there than anywhere else on earth. Have a wonderful day. Carolyn

What a lovely morning stroll that must have been...thank you so much for sharing it with us!!!!! And the added treat of some nice coffee to accompany you, a sure reason to praise the One Who makes all things grow and bloom! God is SO good! :-) Della PS~~I do so hope you get to taste that last tomato of the year before the frost settles in.

Hi Nebraska Dave: I'm glad that you enjoyed your stroll. Fall and spring are my favorite seasons, too. We can garden here almost year round, so I will be planting today and tomorrow...onions and garlic! First, though, we are off do to a farm tour. Today we are visiting an Alpaca farm to stock up on gorgeous yarn and then the local winery, where I get fresh worm castings for the garden. I love farm tour weekend! Next year, Cowlick Cottage will be on the tour. I'm glad we have a whole year to get ready. Enjoy a wonderful fall weekend!
