Faded Glory

                                                         I hope your weekend is going well ~ it
                                                         is a cold and windy one here .
                                                        It is the kind of day that makes me want to
                                                        sit by the fireside with a cup of tea.

                                                        The garden has changed again since I took
                                                       these photos a few days ago. The wind has
                                                        sent a lot of leaves flying and snow it will be the
                                                      white stuff flying... we actually had a few flurries today.

                                                         It is time to put the garden to bed and
                                                         we have been doing that this past week.

                                                  I will be planting more bulbs this coming
                                                  week and many of the statues and garden benches
                                                 will go into the barn for the winter.

                                                         Faded glory ~ a few roses hanging on in spite
                                                         of the cold.
                                                          A back view of our boathouse.
                                                                Some autumn color
                                                                A small garden bouquet on
                                                                vintage scales.
                                                               Playing in pic monkey here.

And now it is time for a second cup of tea ~
I am thankful for a husband who went out
on a nasty day and gathered wood for the fire!
Our wood pellet stove and furnace picked
this cold day to go on the blink!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Dear Carolyn
This is the second time I write to you. I really love your blog, it makes me feel so good, so light...I enjoy seeing the photos from your garden, the flowers, the lake, and especially the furniture, I mean everything.I hope you post great pics for Christmas.
A big hug from Brazil!

I even enjoyed reading Edna's comments above. Keep warm inside! We have a wood burning stove insert in the fireplace and love that feeling (but not the dust of course). Your garden is still quite green - for now!

Autumn has arrived here too Carolyn. It is always a pleasure to visit your blog.

Stay warm and cozy sweet friend.

I love that village teapot. I have a cup and saucer with the same design. We are having very cold temps here in WV.

Dear Carolyn,

We have been doing exactly the same thing this weekend! Temperatures are dropping in The Netherlands too and it was high time to put the garden to bed. Hope the weather will stay beautiful for a little while longer, so that you can plant your bulbs.
