Lowe's Gift Card Giveaway!

Summer is officially over and fall has wasted no time making its presence known! We have a frost advisory tonight! After the record breaking hot dry summer, the cooler temperatures are a welcome relief but I am not ready for frost!

Here are a few late summer pictures:

The verbena bonariensis is always a hit with the butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and hummingbird moths! Thankfully it spreads easily throughout the garden and was one of the few plants that survived our summer drought.

The hummingbirds were here yesterday fighting over the feeders. There were three or four of them still hanging around, diligently keeping guard over their  nectar source! This one was on the front porch all day long sitting on a dragon fly that stays in a planter. I took this picture through the front door side lights. 

The temperatures dropped into the 30's last night and the hummingbirds have not been seen at all today. Their departure is my signal that summer is officially over.

The Lowe's Creative Ideas project this month is all about mums! The best part is that I have a gift card for one of you! I've never had a giveaway on my blog before so I am excited to offer this Lowe's $50 gift card to one of my readers, (U.S. residents only)! To enter leave a comment on this post and  I'll use to pick a winner! 

The giveaway ends at midnight September 30, 2012. Only one entry per person please!

This giveaway is now closed! Thank you for participating!
