Fall Day at Home

My son has some Fall beauty in his cottage yard.

Rose partially protected from frost.
Oh my, looking at herself in grandma's mirror.

A beautiful fall day at home. I cleaned a lot out of my garden. Yesterday morning in the low 30's and went to almost 70 degrees. Now this early morning a high prediction of 70 degrees for the next week. I could have left the tomato and green pepper plants in the ground. Oh well. My garlic plants are about 2 inches high and I am enjoying my turnip greens.

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Mahatma Gandhi

Some sharing from One Woman on her Journey Through This Life

What wonderful pictures .

I am just curious. The mirror that your pretty granddaughter is looking into, is it part of a big door of a big wooden wardrobe cupboard ?

My late mother-in-law, who would have been close to 100 years old this year, had a similar cupboard dating back from the old days, and I just saw a kind of resemblance.

Just wondering.....

Ugich, yes that is an old wardrobe that I purchased over 40 years ago.
Not in the best of shape but still lovely and I like it. My little granddaughters love looking at their reflections in the mirrored doors.

What a sweet picture of your little sweetheart. I love the photo of your son's yard also. You are quite expert with the camera, Ernestine.
