Just thinking you might need some inspiration for the up coming holiday! LOL....took this image in Branson at Silver Dollar City....loved the stripes and thought of the bad witch in the Wizard of Oz immediately!
These are the colors of fall, to me. I think red is the first color I think of when I'm thinking of fall because I love seeing the trees turn to their bright red color. Our leaves weren't too colorful this year...only lasted a couple of days and then they got blown off yesterday.
Just wanting to share my beautiful Dahlia's. These didn't do real well this summer during the heat and humidity but since it has cooled down, they are putting on quite the show. I lost 2 out of the 8 plants due to rot. These started out only about 6 inches tall and now they are a good 2 feet tall and around. They are loaded with blooms. As you can see, my mums aren't blooming yet.
Not exactly what I had in mind for my subject this week but it's definitely yellow! I had a bit of the shakes trying to take a picture of it...was pretty sure the dang thing was going to jump off the web and on to me while I was capturing it. Next time, I'll use the telephoto lens and stand back! I captured it quickly and left it alone.
Not the greatest yellow image but all I have been able to come up with so far. This is the last of my yellow roses for this year. Can't wait to see what they do next year.
Used Sweet Vintage action from Florabella.
Do I cut these back now or in the spring???? Can't remember what you said.
I drafted this a long time ago....last Fall, to be exact, and for some reason never posted it. I was looking through and cleaning up the draft folder when I came across it, so decided it was time to publish. I love these little vases that Nita sent to me...they are perfect for single blooms. I didn't have any of this color Dahlia this year and missed it this Fall. Loved the color combination.
Well, as you can see, it wasn't hard for me to find purple this past Sat. Gavin plays on the South Harrison football team and their colors are purple. This is where I've been spending most of my Saturdays for the past month. Plus, it is over an hour drive to them...in fact, this one was an hour and a half and next Sat. is almost 2 hours but it will be the last one of the season. He loves playing but hates it when its cold and it was cold this last game.
I admire Pat's images Here so much that I wanted to see what I could do.
Mine don't compare to hers but I had fun playing around and with some practice I might get better.
This is a table in the sun room that we never use. I couldn't stand to have the table in the kitchen set all the time. We use it to much. This is the only one I can do because I don't have that many different dishes.
Hope you have enjoyed your vacation and didn't work to hard.
