Even with the cool sunny days & cool nights, the cottage rose bush that I planted back in 2009, still blooms away in a beautiful rose pink colour.I had planted three that year and this is the lone survivor.
The Cottage's Hunkering Down!
Baby Aloe Vera Plants...
I looked everywhere for cactus soil & no one had any. Google helped me out with a recipe to make some, one part potting soil, one part peat moss, & one part construction sand. I settled for sandbox sand for the recipe & it worked very well. Now to find homes for these pup plants.
Hope my Canadian readers had their share of turkey. I had my turkey sandwich at lunch with a huge filling of Jay & Elizabeth's cranberries. It was just Bill & I, the first time in 41 years not to have any kids at the table for me. Everyone is off doing their own thing this Thanksgiving. Christmas however is a different story, glad the cottage is still standing to catch the overflow. I'll be decorating it too, this year for Christmas, oh so cozy!
Right now I'm going to continue to enjoy the ever changing gorgeous colours of the trees in our area!
With the gardening & lawn mowing done for the season & the canning & freezing of garden food near an end, cranberries are still out here! Love cranberries!
I'll have a some studio time to sew & a new rug to hook, I've finished the crewel worked on with the lattice edging!
A feeling of accomplishment getting this done & finding just the right edging colour. A special thanks to June in Riverview NB, for showing me how to crotchet the edge to finish the rug, it was so easy & I just love the look of it!
Hope the Fall colours are giving you a warm feeling looking at them! This is my most favourite season of the year!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit! Have a great short week!
