More Happy Autumn

More autumn pix to enjoy.
Don't forget to click the first pix to start the slideshow and see on a big screen if you can for best viewing

 Bonyparte was a bit lonely, so we moved him over to the poo flinger with shy Sheilah the Scarecrow
 A trip to Michaels and the gate got its fall colours installed.  While I was working on that, two people stopped their cars to compliment us on our fall display.  Guess people DO sometimes pay attention to the scenery hereabouts
 Cricket poses with the Ugly Planter full of pansies in full bloom
 The gate is also pleasing from the backside
 'Maximillion' sunflower, a perennial sunflower that comes back every year.  It was planted in the corner by the west side of the dog run with a penstemmon 'Margurita BOP', who also preferred to simply be left alone, no watering or anything.  That is, until Dale accidently mistook it, out of bloom, for a weed and whacked it to the ground.  A few sprigs popped up this spring, so maybe next year it'll come back.  The sunflower is the toughest thing I've ever seen, next to the purple petunia growing in the gravel parking area next to the dairy barn garage, which is STILL blooming
What's fall colour without mums?
