Welcome To A Florida Native Plant Garden In The Fall

These pictures were taken in the historic district of our town, the lake yard area beside the library....
The little garden, sits beside our historic library and is a wonderful place to sit and read......or just sit and take in the sites and sounds of the lake.....


If you look closely, you will see some wild life.........the little squirrel is greeting us today.....


There are brick paths that meander around the plants and bird baths.....



and there are places to sit and rest, like that bench straight ahead....











Fall has definitely made it's way to the Northwest Florida Panhandle....see the brown leaves that have fallen. It's the perfect temperature today....waking up to the 50's and it will be about 74 degrees today....it doesn't get much better than that.....



















there's an orange butterfly....


Morning Glories still blooming, but not for much longer......
Winter will come....

This reads: A Florida Native Plant Garden, designed to feed the birds, butterflies, and the souls of the humans who visit it. I've always felt fed by being here.






In this picture you can view the back side of the library. It was established in the 1880's and has been built onto over the years, but is still being used as our library. I wish I would have showed you a picture of the front side of it.....it is old and beautiful. Maybe I will show a picture of it in a future post...







A few leaves turning red, just ahead....

Well, this is what fall looks like in the Northwest Florida Panhandle in Defuniak Springs FL.  
I hope you enjoyed the fall garden tour!
