WHITE WEDNESDAY: LAST DAYS OF SUMMER

Welcome to another fabulous white Wednesday...please check out Kathleen's blog for a list of all the WW participates. 
Well, fall IS officially here, but it is more like summer in this part of B.C.  My garden is still looking so pretty that I have decided to do another garden post.  It won't be too long before the fall/winter rains begin (they do call this the WET COAST at times, short for west coast) so I am enjoying every sunny moment until then.


Here is a little bundle of lavender from my garden tied together with a piece of old sheet. It sits on top of a beautifully weathered side table in the yard.


This is another one of my staircase post projects I use as a bird feeder.


What a lovely surprise these gladiolas were this summer as I had forgotten that I had planted them and almost pulled them up thinking they were weeds!


A chippy white garden lantern sits on top of a chippy stone against some sedum and a white David Austin rose (smells so good!).



"CHERISH THE MOMENT"  is a rub-on I added to this sweet little container.
I hope you are all having a fabulous White Wednesday.  Happy day!!

Great post for WW with lovely pictures. It's still summer here in Florida as well..My garden just looks a little tired. I'm sure it would welcome a little cooler weather, as would I!

Such beautiful photos, Janis. My favorite is the first one. Maybe a coffee table book is in your future. (At least consider it) Then I would be able to say "I knew her when..."

Absolutely refreshing!

Hi, Janis,
I always look forward to White Wednesday to see your white pretties. You have a wonderful garden, and I love how you have embellished it. Sending autumn blessings your way. (It is actually cool and rainy here in hot Central Texas so it is feeling like autumn.). Vicki
