We took a little day trip Sunday and saw some nice fall color.
We stopped at a Kohl's and I found these big heavy purple stemmed glasses that I just couldn't resist. I put them in the window to try to get enough natural light to give you an accurate picture of the color(that first one looks too blue on my computer so I guess I failed).
I bought six of them. I don't know what dishes I will use them with yet, but I must have some that go with purple. It seems that I once wished I had purple glassware to go with some table setting I was doing.
The fall color was not bad, though I've seen years when it was much brighter. I didn't see many reds this year.
I had fun looking for old dilapidated barns to take pics of...these were two of my favorites:
I think they turned out pretty good since I took them while in a car moving at 60 mph.
I had a big failure with my quilt in progress this weekend. I spent quiite a few hours making 11 blocks for the next border. When I layed them out to see how they worked..........UGH! No way.
This is the second border that has not worked. It's back to the drawing board for me.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
