This is the lone zinnia left.  Leaves are accumulating in piles and the hydrangeas are turning their beautiful shades of copper.  As much as I love the planting in spring, I really think as I grow older it is fall that captures me.  Maybe because as I age I see it in such new light.


Another sweet engagement photo of my youngest daughter and her fiancé .


Yesterday my granddaughter took her brother's undershirt and made us all laugh!


I continue to post this picture of my youngest daughter and Nin Pham, the nurse diagnosed with Ebola.  They were high school classmates.  Please continue to pray not only for Nina and now the other nurse infected. And please offer up prayers for guidance for those making decisions and all those caring for the sick.

Linking up with Aunt Leila today at Like Mother Like Daughter!


  1. like you, i find my fading fall garden a joy....still lots of color to bring in the house although not always in the form of flowers! leaves and berries abound.
    loving your hitofude!!! someday i'll make another---it was that good a knit.
    and of course, prayers have been going out steadily....even before i knew of your connection.
