LOOKING LIKE FALL OUTSIDE

I wanted to show you some pictures of my mums that our church recently sold for missions. These are absolutely beautiful. This fund raiser was very successful....491 mums were sold. I took these pictures late this afternoon and the colors aren't as pretty as the mums really are but you get the idea.
You know from an earlier post that I dress my bunny for different months or events. I dressed him in over-alls and a flannel shirt for fall (I do have a Halloween costume that I found at the Thrift store that he'll be wearing before long). Mr. Bunny greets all my visitors as they start up the steps toward my sidewalk.

This is the front of my house. You can see the hose stretched across the yard going to my rose bushes. It is so dry right now and I'm having to water them. I didn't take the time to move the hose before making this picture. I don't have any pictures yet of the leaves turning on the trees but it is beginning to look like fall with the mums and pumpkins.

Pretty, Sue! I'll have to look for your house when I drive out that way again. We went to Wilsonville to watch Bama football with our friends last Sat. & will probably be going again this weekend.

I guess you saw that I'm having a yardsale this Sat.?!

Everything is looking beautiful. Maybe this week will bring on some color. I love Amy's post of cupcake and Griff. I can't wait to see the railroad track and cotton fields blooming with Garrett kids.

Your home is beautiful!!! I know what you mean about it being dry. Fortunately we received a lil' over an inch of rain yesterday but I'm afraid it is a lil' to late to help out the pasture. Hope you received some at your homestead. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. Blessings to you. Cathy
