Pink Saturday

Hello everyone,
       Another week has gone by so quickly and it is time for Pink Saturday again.So, I hope you are not tired of seeing my roses etc. because I have a few more to share with you today.

A touch of frost adds some sparkle to the roses.

This is a second flowering for these pretty pink lupins.

My pretty chintz teacup with a pink dahlia from the garden.

Well, I know there are lots of pretty pinks for you to see at How Sweet the Sound so I won't keep you but thank you for coming to visit me and have a wonderful weekend!

My good friend Linda at Beautiful Ideas is having her first giveaway so please pop in and check it out.


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.
