Late October Reds for Mosaic Monday


42nd Wedding Anniv mosaic

This week my husband and I celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary.  The years have gone by so quickly.  Here we are smiling as I sign my new name in the register, then came along the boys and finally a picture taken last year at a wedding. It makes me laugh to see those pictures and how do you like the seventies clothing!  We seemed so young.


Late October Reds Mosaic

In the Sandbox gardens this morning there were still pockets of colour. The Helenium or Sneezeweed is blooming away despite the frost we have had lately. The Autumn Joy Sedum, Barberry, Oak tree, and  Euonymus or Burning Bush colours intensify as the season progresses.  I have one lone little red rose blooming and the Ornamental Grasses are showing beautiful plumes.

I hope you are observing the last of the fall colour in your neighbourhood too.  I will be joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.   Have a great week.

Well, belated anniversary wishes to you Valerie. I love looking at the 70's styles don't you? Your red mosaic is beautiful. I just dumped the impatiens this afternoon as they were full of rain water and beyond producing now. :( I hope you have a beautiful week. Blessings, Pamela

Hi Val
Love the old photos, you two have aged gracefully!
The reds are vibrant reminders of how beautiful our autumns are.

Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful mosaic of your family. You really should print it and frame it! And your flowers are beautiful. The burning bush is bright red here in the mountains this week! Hugs!

Beautiful autumn colors!

Congratulations on your anniversary! Your mosaic is beautiful!

Jill Harrison said...

yes we probably were young. I know we were when we got married 37 years ago! Such a lot of water under the bridge in that time. Congratulations on your anniversary. And have a wonderful week. I am loving seeing your fall colours.

Happy Anniversary, Valerie. I wonder if the clothes we wear nowadays will look strange in another 42 years. That's just the way of fashion, I think.
You look lovely, then and now.

Beth said...

Congratulations, Valerie! I enjoyed seeing both of your photo collages. You have some beautiful color in the garden still.

The thought of the last bits of color is saddening....all brown until next April.

Your shots are so colorfully cheerful.

Hi Val,

Belated congratulations on your Anniversary! A wonderful achievement and the photos are terrific. Younger then, yes, but you look great now, too.
