Enjoying November in the Back Yard

November will soon be a distant memory, so I wanted to enjoy some of its beauty in the back yard before the frost hits. The mum is still blooming so beautifully, and looks so pretty with the orange of the pumpkin.



Moving the pumpkin over here, where it fits just perfect in the small birdbath That I got at a sale for $10.


The Zinnias mark the spot where my precious little Livy dog is buried, although the blooms are looking a little faded and spent. The purple mum is still bright and pretty, and in the background on the fence gracing the iron planter...



are the vincas showing off their pink blooms.



Lacey wants to get a closer look because she is quite fond of pink.



Deciding against it, she settled here instead



where she could keep her eye on this suspicious fella 



and maybe even catch a glimpse of a church goer or two! Tweet! Tweet!



Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!

  7. What a lovely post, Gina! I love where your little pup is buried. We have one of our dogs and one of our cats buried in the back yard along the stone wall. Your yard and gardens are beautiful. And I am in love with your handsome little friend - what an adorable face! Thanks so much for visiting. It has definitely been a while since I've been in blog-land. It's nice to be back :)
