The Haunted Gardens

Byrum Art is proud to announce that we have been invited to join the wonderful group of ladies who belong to The Haunted Gardens!! This year Ron and I have all kinds of plans for our "Halloween Gardens". We start planting after April the 15th in anticipation of Halloween. Our gardens in the front of our house are all planned around the Halloween season. We use lots of oranges, whites, purples and our favorite Moonvines. This year we plan to add some special lighting and many other ideas we have! So be sure and keep up with our posts to this wonderful, magickal place, where Gardeners gather and share all their treats!!

Fall Is Arriving in the Ozarks

Fall in the Ozarks has arrived with cool nights and warm days!!! Our flowers we have nurtured all summer are at their peak and will soon be gone when the first frost arrives!! I love this time of year, it is one of my favorites. Soon I will be cleaning out all the beds and begin preparations for next Spring, the season of hope. Once the Chrysanthemums have faded we will plant our spring bulbs (Daffodils, Tulips and Hyacinths) that will come up in their place in the spring. They are perfect for planting in bulb gardens because by the time the Spring flowers have lost their glory the Chrysanthemums are beginning to sprout and they grow in their place. Season after season, each year they produce more and the garden becomes more beautiful as time goes by.

We use the round bed to plant spring bulbs and annuals in the spring! In the meantime it makes a pretty place to display our holiday decorations.

And how about some Azaleas in the Fall????
This is a hybrid we added this year.

We also started blue morning glories this year in our Bird Sanctuary!!! Next year they will be gorgeous!

Fall has just arrived here and we will have more pictures of the Ozarks hills as they turn into a color palette of oranges, yellows and green! We'll smell the wonderful smell of burning leaves soon and will see the Harvest Moon shining down on us!!

Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Tomatoes

We've got lots of tomatoes already on the vine!! Great big, juicy ones and my favorite sweet Cherry tomatoes!!! They are growing really fast this year! Is it the wonderful top soil we have or the strange Harvest Full Moons we're having??
