fall flowers




Our garden is still blooming with roses, hydrangea, lavender and russian sage. I'm loving these deeper shades of red, pink, and purple.

A Year of Mornings: 3191 Miles Apart arrived in the mail yesterday. It is such a lovely book! Mav's Port2Port and Stephanie's Little Birds were the first two blogs I ever read, and their work inspired me to eventually start my own blog. I still check in with 3191 daily.

On Monday, I noticed there's a brand new exciting collaboration going on between Famapa and Sandra right here. Take a peek if you have the chance!

Hi Karina, Grace, and Karin. Thank you so much for your nice comments on my garden flowers. I have to tell you, my garden is the size of a postage stamp, but right now it's blooming and making me happy.

Hi Mary,
I love pink and green too...must be the inner preppy in me coming out :)

Hi Anu, isn't it funny how we are all idealizing your apple trees, yet the reality is that it makes a lot of work for you? I bet when your children are grown they will say, "Remember when we had those beautiful apple trees growing at our house?", and not realize all the work for the parents!
