Grace Gardens is...

This blog's purpose is for me to keep a garden journal of sorts. To detail some of the things that I accomplish in the garden and a little of what I do in my home as well. It will also be a place where I will post the photos that I love to take so much. Maybe a place to post my overflowing of pictures that I particularly like or find artistic. Some posts will be wordy...and some may have no conversation at all. Just a post to bring back to mind a lovely day or a meaningful memory. I have disabled the comments on this blog, but feel free to e-mail me for any questions about what you see here. My e-mail address can be found in my profile.

The glory of Autumn.

I wanted to share a few photos of how the garden colored up this fall.

 The crab apples were loaded this year and it has made the birds very
happy so far this fall. Almost everyday they are filled with birds
getting the energy they need to get through this cold weather.
In total we have nine crab apple trees in the garden
along with eight chokecherry and  three elderberry.
Lots of food for the little feathered friends that visit here.

this guy will leave them alone. 

 and this one. 

 I don't think I will be using this any more this year. Time to put the pins away.

About fifteen miles from our house is forty acres where our horses pasture in the 
spring, summer and fall.

I was a little late getting here to take photos of the aspen trees as they colored for Autumn, 
but they still look pretty enough for me.

 This is my tiny little shack in the woods. My daughter and I painted it red this summer
and now it will show up beautifully in the snow.

I love this place!
Next year I am hoping to redecorate the little shack. 
I will share photos when I do.
