May You Love The Good Earth . . .

   textures  vines  ferns  grasses  green 
sunny days . . . cool nights
fall in the air
come along with me
for a walk through our yard

ivy ground cover

luscious green

a bit of orange in the chinese lanterns 

 dusty brown grasses

spruce like tree

 ostrich fern

 sweet potato vine

cedar branches

bitter sweet vine

how fortunate I am to have this space
to create and enjoy
thank you for visiting

I adore your gardens! Thanks ever so much for sharing them.
I too feel that Fall is in the air.
We saw some leaves changing up the canyon the other day!
How I love your Chinese lanterns.
They must be so fun to decorate with!

Hope this week is a wonderful one for you :)

Smiles :)

Thoughts for the day said...

Wow I haven't seen a chinese lantern for a LONG time. Beautiful.

Elaine said...

Really beautiful gardens. The glimpse of the Chinese lanterns has reminded me that I planted some - I must check on them.
The leaves are beginning to turn too - my favourite season is almost upon us, how can that be when summer has scarcely begun?

Wonderful greens Lynne. Yes, a hint of fall is here. I saw a few trees with orange and red leaves...its starting to happen.

Jill said...

Thank YOU for the tour. It's better than going to a park.

Bonnie said...

Oh Lynne, Everything looks so lovely. I love the chinese lanterns and the bittersweet. I don't either would do here. I might try though. Thanks for the walk. Bonnie

Your yard is so pretty! You have been blessed with such a green thumb and the space to use your gift! Thanks for sharing with this "black thumb" girl!

How fortunate we are you choose to share it, Lynne. The light shining through the foliage is particularly lovely.

Hi Lynne, These are the everyday miracles that some overlook. How in the world do those ferns know to curl or the vine to climb? Where does the color of the flower come from...the good brown earth.... It's a beautiful world Lynne, thanks for sharing! Love, Penny

missy said...

You have such lovely, lush, green plants..Lot's of shade I'll bet..Nice pictures..

Love the garden. We have so little actual yard that gardening is impossible. And if I had a yard, it would be brown!! ha ha

But yours is BEAUTIFUL. I love the colors. Green is my favorite color.

I have a love/hate affair with green. Hubby was in the service and my avocado green appliances from the 70s refused to die. I just finally had to paint that old fridge. But now I love the new greens and find myself knitting with it a lot.

So great to see some real green -- if not in your yard instead of mine! You have the green thumb, Lynne. :)

LANA said...

Beautiful photos. I especially love the ivy. I have bittersweet also and think of it as a weed to be banished but after seeing your photos I think you changed my mind. - Thanks!

Admire your greenery and spacious garden. Since I love plant dyeing/printing, I love flowers, trees and all sorts of plant. With fall approaching you'll have another view of nature. Following you.

What a beautiful garden it is!! You have great green fingers. I am amazed when I see each plant has each green. This is the place where I want to be in summer!
