Happy Autumn!


Well it's the first day of Autumn and soon the leaves on the trees will begin to change colors.  We've been enjoying fresh apples and the cooler weather and are grateful for the little rain we have been getting!

"Autumn Leaves" quilt from the 1930s.

The days may be shorter but the flowers seem brighter these days.  The bees and the squirrels are more active as if in anticipation of the cooler weather!  The zinnias in particular are blooming like crazy!

One disappointment this year were the cosmos.  Although all the seeds I planted germinated, only one plant bloomed:

The rest of the cosmos grew taller than me (and I'm 5'6") with thick stalks but didn't bear a single flower.  I'm ready to pluck them out of the garden and be done with them.

Tomorrow is Flower Friday and if you have anything to share, please feel free to email me at!  

As always, have a safe and happy day!


  1. I really enjoyed reading about the Centennial quilts and love that block. I enjoy blocks with curves as I think that adds interest. Yes, wasn't Y2K something!

  2. Sorry, I also wanted to say I love that nostalgic, and that autumn leaves quilt. The blue is so pretty and an interesting choice.
