Fall in the Air...

This is my favorite time of year warm sunny days cool nights. There is so much to do around the yard and garden it is time to make changes with plantings and to harvest garlic, apples and such. This year I will be doing some raised beds, changing the raspberries, building a walk in closure for the blueberries, moving some Rhodos to new beds. Gathering poles, posts, seaweed and leaves are high on my list...

BugBane, Wind Fall Fir at Elk Falls Park where my friends Fred and Robin were married on Saturday, a beautiful setting indeed! Last a Lemon Drop Clematis from our yard. 
Ruby Rhubarb that my dad gave me, it has been in the family for over 60 years. A shot of the Distillery in my neighborhood. The Peace Rose is from my mom and is over 40 years old, some apples from our tree and dill seed. Fall flowers and harvesting the garlic.
Recently while working at the Bridge Studios a friend was telling me about '' Old Billy '' Every morning and evening a massive number of black birds migrate along Still Creek where a lot of the film studios are, at some time the metal black bird was planted on the girder. My dad says he has only seen a horse live to 29 years.


  1. What a great place for a wedding.
    Such lovely fall pictures.
    Love the cart you have your apples in.

  2. What a wonderful place! I am in love with your Lemon Drop Clematis and the story of "Old Billy". Thanks for partying with us!

  4. a lovely series Rob' - I've been picking rhubarb lately too, and I love dahlias (noted in your collage). Your header is very attractive and what a lucky find, the nest with blue egg!

  5. Hello Rob ... I always enjoy your Blog. Love the little wagon. I wish I was gathering Fall Harvest.
    Fall Happiness to you.

  6. Wow. I've never heard of a horse living that long, either! Amazing. I love the plants that have been in your family for so long, Rob. How amazing. I wish I had some like that, especially something from my grandmother's garden. Unfortunately, I wasn't interested in gardening in those days, so I never thought to take a cutting.

    I love this time of year, as well.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  7. Hi Rob, what a lovely site for a wedding. I too love that you have kept your family plants going for so long. I am awfully sentimental about plants myself. Visiting from Claudia's, Olive

  8. Great photos. How interesting about that horse! Amazing!

  9. Being from Central Kentucky, which is horse country, I love the horse story. Your garden photos are lovely. I am a new follower from Claudia's blog hop.


  10. What a beautiful place, and you sound so industrious! I need some of that energy for my fall projects!

  11. I'm featuring you and your sister this weekend!
