Autumn Rose



                                                                Happy Weekend!
                                  I almost missed this little autumn rose blooming in the garden. I don't know the name of it but it was just one of those little pots of roses that you buy in the grocery store in the winter to enjoy indoors.Did you know you can plant them out in the garden and often split them in two or three piecs and they will bloom all summer and winter over in the garden.
                               Anyway,I thought I should get some photos of it as I am will soon be missing going out to the garden and picking a bouquet for indoors. Soon,but not quiet yet!
                                                     Love these old looking baby boots.



                             When I was done of my photo shoot the little rose went to it's final home in the vase on my kitchen window sill to be enjoyed.
This hammock came home with me from the 70 mile yard sale last Saturday. It was $4 and still had it new tags on it. I knew I had just the spot for it in between these two old trees by the woods and near the pond.


                                                   Enjoy your weekend!

        Thank you for visiting,

                 Carolyn

Wow! What a find!!! A hammock - new - for four dollars! Happy congratulations! =]

I have a pretty apricot colored rose in my garden that I just planted, this summer. It always seems to be gently glowing - no matter what the light - from the inside out! =]

I love your little vignette in the soft autumn light! =]

It's a beautiful rose, Carolyn! The color is perfect for this time of year, too. I'd love to lay in your hammock after wandering your gardens. I'm sure the weather must be lovely by you now, too.

The rose is a little treasure!
Yesterday I picked the last of the pink roses - the yellow will bloom for a long time yet, even into December in a good year.

Sweet roses in nature and on dishes.

Amazing rose at this time of year. Makes me wonder if my flower food needs to be boosted.

I can feel the breeze and smell the leaves starting to turn, thanks for those tweaks of autumn.

hugs,

What a pretty colour that rose is. I love the old brown baby boots. It's a cold rainy day here. :(

Lovely post, Carolyn. That's a colourful hammock. It's nice to have the pellet stove going today because it makes the house so cozy on a cool rainy day! Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the last of your roses.

Blessings,
Sandi

I'm back and SO enjoying some of my favvie blogs, such as yours, dear Carolyn!

Your peachy orange "autumn" rose is gorgeous- what a nice gift from God to find in your garden unexpectedly!

I was just so close to you a few days ago- and the day was gorgeous - and thought of you and your pretty gardens!

Those baby shoes are so neat, and WOWZA on the new to you incredible hammock, those things are worth a TON! And you found it for $4? Golly molly what a find! Well done!

What an enchanting way to welcome autumn, Carolyn-----with such a sumptuous rose.

I have not been able to access your beautiful blog on my computer but when I go to the mancave and use my husband's, I can.

So soon I will have a techie person help me get the blog on my computer once again!

So happy to catch up on the splendourous photos. Susan

Wow! I brand new hammock for $4.00. Now that is a BARGAIN. Autumn is definitely upon us here in Upstate NY, but my knock out roses are still blooming.

What a pretty little rose--with its sweet fall color. Love those baby shoes!

Deborah said...

Love that flower and the lighting in your photos is beautiful Carolyn.
I also love the little bottles for flowers. I have a coupe of those too. :)
That hammock was a great buy and I see you have found the perfect spot for it! Lovely!

I always plant those roses I buy in the winter. They can be real big and some of the colors are just amazing.
Lovely pics as always and I too love the baby shoes. They are really used, lol.
Hope you have a nice week.
Love Elzie

Just found you from Lavender Cottage. What beautiful photos of the little orange rose, with the sweet little boots so worn beside them. I'll certainly be following you, to see what comes next.
Best wishes from a new follower.
