    A Peek in the Rainbow Garden

    and if I were a bird I would fly
    about the earth seeking the successive autumns."

    All this in your garden . . . now? We had a hard frost last night and snow the past 2 days so my tomatoes are finally gone for the season. Not much left in bloom up here. Pomegranates? How very cool! I don't think I have ever seen them in the natural setting.
    Thanks for the tour!

    Just popping in to lend a hand--they look like Bonfire Begonias in #2. Can you believe they're part of the Begonia family? I couldn't when I first saw those come into work a couple months ago! (I work in a nursery.)

    Have a great day!

    Carol, Yes, these shots are current - end of October in North Texas. Perennial gardens are in wild bloom once the heat of summer winds down. The pomegranate is lovely; it bears fruit (but green, not edible), and the flowers are a spectacular bright orange.

    Lisa, THANK YOU! This is one of the few plants I added to the garden without researching, and I had no idea what it was. You have helped immensely! Begonia???!!!!

    It's so good to see a dash of color! Sadly our garden has been kissed by frost. Love those pomegranates! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    Beautiful colours once again! Over here in the Uk the flowers are moreorless gone, but the leaf colours intensify. I have done some journalling and have a flickr account but don't know how to link it with yours?

    Terri, Today it's chilly with massive thunderstorms, so I don't know what the garden will look like tomorrow... hoping all the blooms won't be lost.

    Jaki, We'll get some autumn color in another month here in north texas.

    With regards to flickr, just find my flickr account at http://www.flickr.com/photos/raqkat and on the top right under the menu it will say something like "add gypsy999 as a contact" and click on that and then you will see my updates on your home page for flickr. Once I see that, I'll add you and see yours. To add something to a flickr group, you'll go to the group page, click on Join This Group. Once joined, you can click on any photo you've uploaded and click on the photo and select actions, add to group and then page down til you see the group you want to add it to! You didn't leave an email addy, or I would write you. Let me know if this helps!
