Fall Chrysanthemum for Macro Friday

 

golden-chrysanthemum-lr

In the stores and nurseries these days are containers of beautiful chrysanthemums.  They come in so many beautiful colours and it hard to choose.   I bought a few  pots of different colours to put into a container.  This one called to me this morning with the light on the petals.   

I will be joining Laura at Blogging from Bolivia for Macro Friday.   The fall fairs and festivals have begun.   Our local  Horticultural Society is holding it’s annual fall plant and bake sale.   I have divided some plants up in my garden to donate and I am baking some cookies for the bake sale.   The monies go to programming and the various public gardens that we keep up each year.   How are you going to spend your weekend?   Hope it is a good one whatever you do.   Valerie

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
