Happy Autumn y’all! These lovely mums are just gorgeous, aren’t they? My moma was out here visiting from North Carolina and wanted me to have this gorgeous mums/fountain grass combo for my porch. I love it!
This spunky little fawn kept trying to get past our motion-activated sprinklers near the pond and gardens out back – he was hilarious to watch as he’d crouch & jump and eye that sprinkler like he wanted to take it on!
Around 7am the other morning I thought we were in for a doozy of a storm as I sat outside doing my morning devotions. I was amazed at how fast-moving this front was, and in the end we only garnered maybe 20 minutes of rain out of it. Beautiful tho!
This beautiful doe was back again to slurp down wild rosehips off our back porch.
As dry and brown and crunchy as most everything is here right now, I am so happy to still have a few things blooming in our gardens, like these white phlox and a second round of lovely-scented roses.
This is growing out of a terra cotta pot out back near where we feed the birds and wild turkeys. When it first came up we laughed about a piece of the feed corn managing to germinate and come up, but then it set seeds and we realized it’s millet!
On our visit to my Uncle Don’s last week, Jim received this awesome motorcycle “pinwheel” from Don – what a treat!
The autumn leaves begin to fall …
Our beautiful old dog waiting for me on the porch.
Jimmy went over and spent the afternoon with a dear old friend of ours, Frank, this week. They had some fun working on Frank’s old Jeep. Ain’t she pretty?
We’ve had lots of beautiful dragonflies around the place this year. Last night Jimmy momentarily caught one in our large bug jar, then he carefully let it crawl out onto his hand and took its picture before setting it free. Awesome!
Later this week I’ll have some *digiscrapping* news and maybe even some *papercrafting* posts to share! Have a lovely week!
Blessings to you!
