As I mentioned earlier, the house faces the pond. There is another path that leads down to the pier. if you look closely you will see one of their feathered friends on the pier!
The old oaks are draped in Spanish Moss, and it is beautiful.
Some more feathered friends. Again...look closely and you will see that the geese have eggs.
A view of the lily pads from the pier (its a bit blurry)
One of the peacocks walking up the stairway, trying to get off the pier and away from me!
Looking up at the house from the stairway. At night some of the peacocks roost on the house!
I believe these are swamp sunflowers. I just picked some of these up. They grow wild in certain areas. Makes for a nice view.
The sun was beautiful peaking through the trees.
If I lived here, I would never leave...you would have to tote me out! I am trying to get Liz to hire me as their grounds keeper! (Hint, Hint Liz!!! She reads my blog...LOL!)
I noticed a few of the hydrangeas were still blooming.
I don't know what these are...I know she has told me before. They grow in several places on the property.
This little arbor is on the side of the house. It is usually covered in a Passion Vine, however...someone else decided to move in and take over....
It has even attached to a tree above the arbor, and continues to grow up into it!
There were several Firespikes around
Then I noticed something.....the white peacock! There were several regular peacocks...and then this one! Very pretty!
I noticed when I downloaded this picture that they all have their heads tucked in the same way! Camera shy maybe?
The peacocks are a bit shy as well.
Their are TONS of camellias on the property. They are loaded with buds. Some of them have already bloomed.
I got to cut this trifoliate orange in half and taste it....well ya'll don't waste your time! It puckered me up! Whew was it sour!
Ginko tree....a big one at that! You don't see many Ginko trees here at all!
Once I finished walking around, it was time to go inside and have our meeting. She had the place decorated so cute for Halloween, and ya'll know I LOVED that!
I loved the candles! We all got a little goody bag as well.
She had tons of Halloween decorations...but I decided to narrow it down for you.
