Autumn has arrived in my cottage garden, along with a new addition to the family. Mason, our baby English bulldog, has brought a lot of joy into our home. He is a rascal, that’s for sure. He was simply too thrilled that I opened the elusive garden gate to sit still for this photo. This section of our yard has poison ivy in the woods, hence the reason I keep this particular gate closed. I managed to get one photo that wasn’t blurred at least.
This is my favorite time of year, but it’s also nostalgic in many ways as preparations begin for winter and the days become shorter. Frost arrived yesterday and the perennials in my garden have begun to die back. It’s those cool nights and warm days that turn our maple leaves glorious shades of red. Nature is such an extraordinary thing, and as one season passes I like to remember the last.
As promised, I’ve put together a photo tour of my cottage garden this season, a scrapbook of sorts, and a simple reminder that spring is just a winter away…
Well, that’s the end of the garden tour, but I will leave you with a few pictures of our new addition. Meet Mason, our new English bulldog. He is so sweet, and Willow is adjusting well to her little brother.
As always, I hope you’re reading something just for fun!
