After a very long and busy day at work yesterday, I sure was glad that I had a nice week-end at home. It was a beautiful and cool week-end. Looking back at last year, we were stuck in the upper 90s and 100s at this time. This week-end we were able to keep the windows open and it felt like fall outside. Above is a picture of my moonflower arch. I can look right out my bedroom window and see and smell the beautiful moonies. I got up and walked around the yard on saturday morning taking some pictures of all the flowers. They were loving the nice cool temps and I was loving drinking my coffee and snapping pics of them.




I also went down to the fruit orchard which is on the extra lot we have by our house. We have alot of grapes that are ready to pick and an apple tree full of apples.



Look at that beautiful blue sky, it was a wonderful morning. I enjoyed being home this past week-end. I was able to work on alot of Art projects and a few surprise packages for friends. I hope to finish them all up by next week-end.
I didn't get a chance to post yesterday as I was so busy at work with the first day of school. Its always so crazy the first day that students return to school. But when I got off it was still such a beautiful day and came home to just sit on the deck and relax for a while.
I wanted to wish my dear friend Jeanie from the Marmelade Gypsy a "Happy Birthday", it was her birthday yesterday! I didn't forget you, Jeanie. I hope you had a wonderful day!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and have a wonderful week too!!!

I'm glad your are enjoying peaceful moments! The moonflower arch is so pretty, such a relaxing scene!

Hi to Lady, and don't let her eat those grapes! (grapes are poison to dogs like chocolate is).

ALL your flowers are beautiful!
Hugs, Cat

I love moonflowers. I haven't had in in many years. I need to write that down for next year. I love your flower photos. Great shots!

Yuppers, our pal, Jeanie had a birthday yesterday. Same as my brother. Take care Beth.

The moonflowers are so big and pretty. Didn't realize the blooms were so big. I still have the pack of seeds you sent me once hanging on my bulletin board. I never figured out where would be best to plant them and as I've said, my flower beds have been neglected the last few years.

Glad you got to have a relaxing weekend for once. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I will email you about my schedule so we can plan to meet for lunch and some shopping.

Your flowers all look so pretty. It must be a joy to walk around your yard.

Jeanie said...

Thanks, Beth! That's so nice! I love the photos -- they are gorgeous! Didn't know moonies smelled -- my neighbor has them, but I haven't been close! And the grapes -- do you use them for jam, wine, salads? Yum!
