Fall Garden

One of my favourite plants in the garden are toad lilies and they have just bloomed! 😀 I don’t know what it is about them, maybe the fact that they come out so late, they are full of life and colour when everything else around them is falling and turning in for the winter.

They are finally strong enough to put on a good showing this year! Where they sit in the far reaches of the yard they get very little sunshine and the dogs regularly run and jump in the area chasing after squirrels effectively tearing them to pieces. There used to be 3 plants but I only see 2 that have survived …. Hubby also has a bad habit of forgetting about them and stepping all over them in the spring and summer when he is gardening! Ssshhh, don’t tell him I told! LOL

The dragon wing begonia still seems to be doing well which is a surprise because we have had lots of rain lately and some pretty cold nights! Hopefully they stick around a bit longer too!!

Cheers!
