FALLing in Love

The Promise Gardens fall have been glorious thus far as the season colors change.  We have been documenting it through photographs and the Camera Awesome app for iPhone.  It is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the gardens.  Take a peek…  Check our images at Instagram for 2013 fall and our HDRChic sites for fabulous fall places.

Welcome December

A Day in the Life #21The Promise Gardens finish their season with amazing colors and surrounded by beautiful foliage to close out November.  Preparations for the winter gardens is underway with a new theme this year.  It doesn’t have to be a bare bones garden over winter but interesting and beautiful treatments to cheer in winter can be added with a backdrop of glorious white snow.  Until then, the last look at the November foliage before the wind carries all of the foliage away.

Oh Falling Leaves…

…you will be missed — your beauty and hues, twirling in the breeze, sunlit glows, shade from the heat, the canopy over lovely places… Today the storm is here, raining heavily, windy and we watch the leaves blow in the wind and fall to be gathered later.  We will miss you…

In the Promise Gardens Fall Mums…

What would fall be without the beauty of Chrysanthemums in the gardens? The beauty of their colors of red, gold, orange, rust blend so well with the changing colors of the foliage. Each year I purchase new colors and varieties from our favorite garden center and divide the mums from last year thus multiplying them every year and now have a large display throughout the fall in the Promise Gardens.

Happy October

October is here and the Promise Gardens is preparing for the fall foliage show, colors of fall and the beauty of the changing season.  All around us there is beauty to behold, taste and enjoy. We are walking the Promise Gardens and surrounding lake, park and fall foliage in October. Watch for details!
