Autumn Flush

With a few showers of rain, the garden is not yet damp, but much more relaxed.
This is my Medlar Tree, full of golden fruits.
, , , and all the roses are having a final flush B4 Winter time comes.


Some lovely post from England.   A little blogging book from Picciolo.  I love it, Thanks Jane!

. . . and my "babel fish giant pin cushion" from Ric Rac

The roses are simply gorgeous! As I was looking at them I believe I could actually smell my Mama's roses! She loved roses and when I was young she had all colors of rose bushes. They were simply beautiful. When we moved from that house to this house the people who bought our house pulled up all my Mama's rose bushes cause the lady said she was allergic to them. It was so sad to go by and not see those beautiful roses.
Have a Blessed Day,
Diane

Cute cover on your blogging book. And I can just smell the heavenly roses. Double Delight perhaps...the red and white. Once upon a time when we lived where it's wamer...we have THE most gorgeous roses; Peace, Mr. Lincoln, JFK, Double Delight, Sterling Silver...

Annie, Your flowers are gorgeous! But I have a (foolish?) question: What are medlars? I've never seen those except once before on your blog.

The cover on that little blogging book is just adorable. And how fun to have a RicRac original!

Lucky you to have rain, your roses are simply beautiful. Love the cover on the book, such a simple idea and yet it makes it. Will you make jam from your medlars?

Love the roses - stunning as always. So that's what a medlar tree fruit looks like. We had one at the first house we lived in, but there was no fruit.

Jenny said...

I have never heard of a medlar tree! looks interesting-lovely roses:)

Melanie said...

What beautiful roses and some lovely gifts. I loved the Douglas Adams books -the babelfish translator. :-)

Oh it was a medlar! Do you make medlar jelly? They say the medlars are best eaten after a frost but do you get frosts in your neck o the woods?

Lovely lovely roses you have there.
