First Week of Fall for Mosiac Monday

 

The first week of fall is now behind us.  I am noticing that the trees are well into their colourful period.  The  fields of grain are golden brown.  The sides of the highways are a wash of white and purple aster and yellow goldenrod.   Mother Nature sure knows how to plan a border.   My mosiac today is a collection of what is blooming in the garden interspersed with my fall decorating attempts.

mosiac for September 26

Join the Mosiac Monday party at Mary’s.  I hope you have a great week no matter what you have planned.   Valerie

What a neat post....I love the mix in the mosaic. I agree with you about Mother Nature. She is quite the clever and dependable lady when it comes to her seasons.

Valerie, Your mosaic is filled with such pretty things. I love your humongous cloche and the flowers are so pretty. I'm not a gardener, so I envy those who can grow such things. It is all I can do to keep pots alive by remembering to water them! *smile* Thanks for coming by from Mary's to see my mosaic. I appreciate the sweet comment.

Thanks for sharing your pretty flowers and Fall decor. Don't know if we will have much color this year since it has been so hot and dry.
Enjoy your week.

The pictures are beautiful. I love the fall. I don't think AR is going to have a very pretty fall. It's been too dry. Doylene
