Fall in a Phoenix/Scottsdale garden is kinda like Spring everywhere else. The plants are happy campers, after finally having a reprieve from the burning sun.
I thought I would play around with some photo textures, to give the pics a little more "fall like" character.
My garden is mostly a container garden since the soil here is so bad. I love planting mums and potato vines for the season.
Here is that cute watering can fountain that I purchased at Sweet Salvage last week.
It makes a nice tinkling sound when we sit out on the patio.
This is the garden area out under the trees. I love finding unusual items, as well as pretty pots to put my flowers and plants in. The bottom left corner of this pic is an old wheel barrow that someone threw away onto their bulk trash pile.
That cute purple bench was another trash pick. It didn't look like that when we found it though. It was really beat up and destroyed. We took it all apart and made new slats for it, then painted them and the iron sides. It took some work, but it was still way cheaper than buying new, plus we had the satisfaction of knowing we rescued it from the landfill.
I do love little garden statuary, and pick them up whenever I find cute ones.
Well, that's what fall looks like in my garden here in Phoenix. The mornings are cool and wonderful to sit outside with a cup of coffee and enjoy the fountain and the birds singing happily.
I hope you are enjoying all the beauty that Autumn gives you too!!!
