A Frosty Morn

Hello everyone,
     Although we have had many beautiful warm sunny days this month ,we have had a white frost a couple of nights.So,early in the morning I went out with my camera to take a few shots of the garden etc. The photo above is from the dock my husband built over our new pond. I like how there is a mist rising from the water.Because the pond is new the water is still brown so it will be next year before it clears up-so I like it in sepia tones better this year.
I like the sunlight shining through the trees with the mist coming off the water in the background.

The roses look so pretty with a touch of frost and a light frost doesn't hurt them-they will still keep blooming until we get a hard frost.

The limelight hydrangea is turning pink.
This double peach daylily is still blooming.

Well, that was my first frosty morn of the season. Last night we had a warm rain but today the sun is shining and it is going up to 22 degrees Celsius.We are really enjoying all the sunshine as we did have a lot of rain in the summer.

Today I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday again.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Early Autumn Tea

Hello everyone,
      With all the beautiful warm sunny (record breaking temperatures) days we are having it is still lovely to have a cup of tea in the garden.
It is a perfect time to enjoy browsing through some of my favorite books while having a cup of tea.
Our bouquet today is an autumn bouquet but there are lots of pastel colors still in the garden too.The chintz teaset isWild Rose by Skie McChie.
This is a Rose Cameo Peach tea cup from Winner's.

I hope you enjoyed an early autumn tea with me today.

I have joined our local photography club recently and I am really enjoying it so far as there is lots of good information and some very serious photographers. So far, I haven't been brave enough to share my pics on their monthly slide show but someday-maybe!

I am joining BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday where there are always lots of beautiful tablescapes.I am also joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.

Thank you for stopping by again and thank you for all the lovely comments on our autumn porch.

Autumn Porch

Hello everyone,
    I hope you had a lovely weekend. I really enjoyed my 70 mile yard sale on Saturday although the weather was overcast with a bit of drizzle. I did get a few things I was happy to find and there were lots of yardsales and lots of people out looking to buy.It is always a nice drive and we enjoyed going for lunch at Windows on the Water.again this year.I will be showing what I bought later.
 I wanted to show you the changes I made on the screened porch to better reflect the autumn season. The beautiful old door is one we have had for awhile but the curtains are a recent thrift shop find. There was something about them that I couldn't resist and at just a few dollars I thought I find a use for them somewhere.
The shutters are still behind the curtains so we are protected from wind and rain.

The mat on the floor was one of my finds yesterday. I liked the gold and rusty colors in it for a cozy autumn look.

I love this angel statue that came home from North Carolina in my carry on bag several years ago.

The hydrangeas are starting to turn their fall colors too.
I spent a very enjoyable sunny Sunday afternoon lounging on this old bed with a book yesterday. I am loving all the beautiful weather we have had this September.
I love this Romamunde Pilcher book September-have you read it? I also love my little dutch windmill birdhouse.
This is the summer look for the veranda.
Just by making a few changes in linens etc. it gives the porch a whole different look.We are still eating out here nearly everyday and hope to do so for awhile yet as the weather is looking good all week and lots of years we get beautiful weather in October as well.

I am joining BNOTP for Metamorphosis Monday and also the house in the roses for Show Off your Cottage Monday.

Thank you for visiting,

The Colors of Autumn

Hello everyone,
    Well,since it is now autumn I have a few collages to that I made from photos taken in previous years that I hope you will enjoy.

These are all shots taken on little drives around the Island.

Even though I am always a little reluctant to say goodbye to summer I do love the autumn as well.

The above collage is made from photos of homes in Summerside a 45 minute drive from our home.So far our foliage is just starting to show it's autumn colors so all but the second collage are previous autumn photos.

Now,I am off to the 70 mile yard sale so I will see you later!

Please go and visit Hakan for Saturday Show off.

Have a lovely weekend!

Roses and Such!

Hello everyone,
      I enjoyed spending some time out tidying up the garden today and it was a joy to be out in the sunshine and warm temperatures as summer winds it way into autumn.

I enjoy seeing the roses putting on a second show.
Fading beauties.

I always love to see roses blooming over an old picket fence.
Another Heritage rose.
This beautiful clematis is putting on it's best show now.
The Japanese Anemones are so dainty.
The dalhias are good for late season color.
The mophead hydrangeas are still so pretty.
Endless summer hydrangea in a pretty antique pitcher.

The Annebellles are still so pretty.
I hope you enjoyed a little sample of some of the roses and such that are blooming in the garden now.

So today we bid goodbye to summer for another year and tomorrow we will welcome fall.The weather on the Island is usually lovely in September and October and this year it has been great so far.
 This is the weekend for the 70 mile yard sale in eastern Prince Edward Island and I always enjoy checking it out-maybe I will see you there!
