It's a hay day.
It's Friday again and I thought I'd share some random photos from this week that just passed. The above photo I took while I was preparing Thanksgiving dinner on Monday past. I looked out the kitchen window and saw the tractor and wagon full of bales passing over the field. I guess they must have had their dinner on Sunday.
This container of summer annuals is on our pergola. It has bloomed profusely all summer and fall. I'll definitely be buying fuchsia again. It's an annual I've never had before and the pergola is a perfect spot for it.
The hydrangea bush is so pretty with it's rosy tinted blooms and golden leaves.
The large creamy marigolds were full of blossoms this year. The frost left a rose tint on the edges of some of the blooms. Don't they resemble carnations? We haven't had a killing frost yet.
What's this? It might be a snack with my cup of tea. :) I found these Purity brand ginger cookies at the grocery store and at Walmart recently. They are made in Newfoundland and there was several different products on the shelf from that company. I remember a similar type of cookie when I was growing up. Do any of my Canadian friends remember these? I also remember spreading them with butter, real butter, and cheese tastes really good on top of them. Yummy!
On Wednesday it was a really warm day - 24C - and some clouds moved in before sunset. I was watching out the window (while doing dishes, I don't just watch all day long LOL) and all of a sudden the yellow turned to coral/orange/pink and blue. It was stunning. The clouds looked like smoke blowing across the sky. It was amazing! So, I grabbed my camera and went out on the deck and snapped some pictures.
Look at those vertical lines in the clouds. Different eh?
I took this photo this morning before the heavy rain started. We're in a tropical type weather system today with the rain and wind that was over Ontario and Quebec the last few days and with warm temperatures from the southern US. It's 20C. Thankfully, we won't be affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Gonzalo. However, the wind is pretty gusty out there right now and the leaves are flying off the trees.
I saw this cute mason jar ring pumpkin in Better Homes and Gardens on Facebook this week so decided to make one. It's so simple to do. They used raffia and a cinnamon stick but I used twine and a real pumpkin stem, which I just happened to have in my stash. What. Don't you save your pumpkin stems? :) I used 12 silver and 5 brass rings but maybe could have used 1 less as it was difficult to keep it tied tight and standing up straight. Try it. :)
Well that's been my week. Nothing exciting going on. Thank you for all your kind comments on my recent posts. I appreciate your visits. Also, welcome to my new followers.
I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed weekend and that maybe you will get out and enjoy the beauty of fall.
