Fall at the Greenhouse

Here in Eastern New Mexico our leaves won't start turning those gorgeous fall colors for quite a while.

According to the Farmers Almanac,   the first freeze in this area is usually around October 23.....and that sounds about right to me

In a few weeks,    I will add some orange-ish pumpkins and some fall colored mums to my flower bed and it will look more like fall.

But for now,    a  goat cart full of pink mum's will do

I scattered a few pastel pumpkins around the flower bed.....

As you can see,   the sweet potato vine has practically taken over the flower bed.

I couldn't resist adding a couple of pops of orange to the!

I placed one of my pastel pumpkins in an empty planter.    

I placed another pastel pumpkin by the mama goat that is normally hitched to the goat cart.

I took this photo about 8 this morning  ......the yard is so peaceful then

I took this photo of the yard about the middle of April.....

The sun shining thru the tree's is making such pretty shadows on the grass!

I think H & I will sit out on the glider after supper tonight!


  1. Nice yard.I like the Mums in the cart. Happy Fall

  2. What an Oasis of beauty with all your outbuildings...Love the Goat and the cart!

  3. I agree with Sandi, love the goat and pumpkin, the goat is such a nice focal point.

  4. Sure is a pretty garden area, Penny. That goat almost looks real. Only you know he would have eaten the lovely potato vines . The pastel orange looks pretty in the garden. .Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. This is a "She-Shed" that would definitely make Cheryl eat her heart out! Perfectly lovely!!!!!

  6. Penny, I love your little greenhouse garden area. It looks so inviting, even at the end of summer. Happy fall!

  7. Penny everything looks so beautiful my friend!

  8. Hello, neighbor! I live in El Paso and my youngest daughter has just moved 'home' to EP from Albuquerque. Found your blog at the Over the Moon link up party. What a lovely space you have created in your garden. Since I am new to your blog, I am not sure what part of eastern NM you call home. Off to investigate and learn more about you.

  9. Lovely! We are slowly transforming our backyard, too....

  10. Penny,
    Love the mums in the goat cart!! Your yard looks so charming!!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
