Autumn in the Cottage

I am on vacation!
I have 2 weeks off, so week one will be spent at home and
 week 2 at 1515 for my birthday.
Thank you to all of you who wished me a early birthday,
it is not until the 15th..but don't we celebrate all month!?

I have time to enjoy the Garden Cottage while I put things away for fall.

Time to pull out my fall try I found in San Antonio a few years ago.
And of course display my vintage seed packets

a white pumpkin and fall leaves

my cosmos are blooming still

my miniature wheelbarrows just perfect to hold a pumpkin

my roses are giving one last blast of blooms


now time to finish the yard and head indoors
BUT
the weather is perfect...
blue skies...
75 degrees...

Now that is vacation weather to me.

Glad you have some time in the old house. I know you have so much going on now when you hit town, you will need another vacation when you go back home. Pretty stuff you got.
