An Autumn Sunset in the Sky and on my Table



Maria
come quickly
bring the camera
. . . it's beautiful . . .



Oooh, it is!


I had just gathered
a sunset of colors in my hands
from the zinnias around my front lawn
and Dutch baby's breath from Saskia.

There are autumn colors everywhere!


Today it is gray and raining.
Keeping cozy with the Earl of Grey
my family
and the autumn colors in my house.
Giving thanks to God
for my blessings

A big Oooh it is! These shades in the sky are stunning, Maria. Your flower arrangement is BEAUTIFUL! I just turned my head around the corner of my living room window to make sure... my baby's breathe are no longer. Next year, we will sew some new Dutch wild flowers, okay? You have inspired me to make such a lovely arrangement too, so off I am, to the flower shop!
Much love for a wonderful weekend, sweet friend xxxxxx

Gorgeous!!!!! What a beautiful sight to be seen! I have discovered that zinnias are the most durable, pretty flower in the garden this year. We have never tried to grow them before. I am so happy we did this year!!
I hope you have a weekend that is as beautiful as you are!
