It is time for the October Tea/Garden Journal here at The Charm of Home. The leaves are definitely turning colors but, they aren't at peak yet. The ferns are finally giving up their good fight this year to stay green. Never have I had green ferns for this long, they always burn. The crabapple tree is full of rosy hued bitty apples. Although, I spent a good deal of time cleaning all of the flower beds out from under it last week, because of a fungus that has left the tree without leaves.
The nasturiums are putting on a show right up until frost. They are huge and gorgeous in orange, yellow and red. I love the variations in color down the veins of the pin oak leaves.
I using one of my favorite tea sets the Blue Willow teapot, made by Churchill and matching cups by Johnson Brothers.
My tea treat this week is cream cheese thumbprint cookies. I will share the recipe tomorrow, they are delicious!
How does your garden grow this season? Do you put it to bed? I will be doing that in the next two weeks.
