On the Goldsmith farm they grow more than veggies. The store was bright with fall flowers. It seems to be a tradition here to put out pots of 'mums' at front doors at this time of year, leading up to the time you can add a pumpkin or two. So I got a few flower pictures too.
There were some nice cut flowers, and we bought a handful of glads to brighten the kitchen.
Adding some ornamental grasses to a pot of mums is a popular thing to do.
Goldsmith's has their own big planter of flowers out front too.
Then I got bored and started trying some close-ups with my iPhone camera - seemed to work quite well. Today is a rainy day and we're just having a nice quiet day inside, a welcome break from all the goings on of the past two weeks!
I've seen some spectacular selections of mums this year. We bought my mother in law a pair of gigantic pots of them to put on either side of the front door of their old log home. They are just beautiful and smell divine!ReplyDelete
I love your pretty flowers. I love the fall flowers and am impressed with your closeups with your phone. Nice! :-)ReplyDelete
Super close ups, and those grasses, perfect backdrop for bright colours in every variety and petal.ReplyDelete
Beautiful flower photos. Enjoy them now; it will be winter soon enough!ReplyDelete
Daisies are my favourite flower in a bouquet. White ones are nice, but for me yellow is the best. - MargyReplyDelete
Very colorful for this time of yearReplyDelete
colors, you found lots of colors -- Beautiful!ReplyDelete
my yard needs more color...about now, the critters have pretty much eaten all the bloomsReplyDelete
Do enjoy all your flower photos. There was a time when I did lots of flower gardening. We should be feeling like fall it would seem with the calendar but with daily temps in the 37 to 38 C range it is still deep summer. Not much of a break in sight either. That is the price paid for milder winters.ReplyDelete
You took some wonderful shots of all the fall colors. The business has a lot of variety of flowers that I would have to buy if I were there.ReplyDelete
