Hope you are all doing well. I think of you often. Smiling
I've had a very busy summer and it doesn't seem to be letting up yet.
Tomorrow we're hosting our annual fall dinner/bonfire/shoot skeet event
so I've been cleaning house like crazy because I only do the bare minimum all summer
it seems because I'm outside so much. with my geese and gardening.
I'm looking forward to boring January and February to catch up on reading
and watching my recorded shows and reading forums.
As you might recall I had a most a w e s o m e
rose crop this year with minimal beetle damage. I think my roses out did themselves
because even my Rugosas did not rebloom well this year but it was well worth it.
I have a sprinking of roses blooming now but nothing to speak of.
So I finally caved in and admitted its Autumn and bought some pumpkins and mums.
So here's some pics from around here.
Blessings to you all! Group hug

I'm glad you had time to post some pictures. The pumpkins are helping me get in the mood for autumn even if our weather isn't. Like Zuzu, however, I like the geese the best. Welcome back!

Thank you all! Smiling
Sue I just looked at your Etzy site and LOVE your totes!
Just beautiful! You are very talented.
Toni I did post pics back in June...that thread is probably on one of the back pages.

Thanks Vicky, I am having fun designing the totes as well as the aprons from my huge stash of thrifted fabrics, linens and vintage embroidery!

VERY nice Sue! Love that kind of stuff.
I'd buy one but I must have 50 totes and purses. Angel
I still have a few roses blooming...St. Cecilia and a couple Rugosas.

Here's a few more new fall goosie pics.

They look like fine ladies off to take the waters - in their petticoats!
