I do have one last rose on this rose bush. I love the deep salmon color of this rose. I am only in charge of this rose bush, it is my daughter Kathy's. Her son got it for her one mother's day. When she moved from her house to an apartment, she didn't want to leave it behind and could not take it with her. So that is how I became it's care giver. One day, maybe Kathy can transplant it in her new yard.
Zinnia, now this is a hardy flower . Comes in bright colors and varied petal shapes.
This is a sunshine flower to me. Love that yellow.
Also it's apple time. I love apple crisp at this time of year. One of my SIL's is crazy for apple pie. I love to smell cinnamon in any thing cooking in autumn. A nice roast in the oven and something with cinnamon for dessert. Now that says fall to me.
How you are enjoying this last Sunday of October....wow did this month go by fast. Today is to be sunny and warm. We better lap up these wonderful warm days. XO
your flowers still look pretty. My dahlia's. roses, and zinna are blooming along with the mums in my yard. 2 days then back to work...we are painting our front and side porch banisters and a new pink for my front door. I had c/o that the pink was too much of a 1990's salmon pink. The weather is suppose to be great so enjoy the day!ReplyDelete
Ann, I hope going back to work is enjoyable...maybe seeing co-workers. Sounds like it rained lots and you worked lots..you may be glad to go back. I plan on some early clean up our gardens this year..I usually let it stand till real late winter or early spring.. But I want to see a clean place this year. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your flowers are pretty...love that yellow zinnia! My zinnias are about done. It's so hard to believe that today is the last Sunday of October. Where does the time go? I'm really enjoying this fall, though. The last few days have been positively gorgeous. Enjoy your day!ReplyDelete
Cheryl, I have to agree about the last few days...now they have really been like fall of old. I am loving that the farmers are getting everything in , working like crazy. I will enjoy every last minute of this fall. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Our weather is still so warm up during the day...in the 80's. Mornings and evenings cool, tho.ReplyDelete
I love ANYthing apple. :)
BJ, I know you love apples...I read a couple of your posts of apple crisp and such and was really wanting to make some myself. YUM. It may get to 80 here tomorrow. Today so far is gorgeous. Blessngs, xoxo,SusieDelete
It's a beautiful day here, too. Out for a concert with friends later and a walk. Got to enjoy our last days of autumn. Have a great Sunday!ReplyDelete
Carol, To get to go toa concert with friends sounds so wonderful . I think we better take in all these nice days. Enjoy today, xoxo,SusieDelete
I don't like to think of this being the last Sunday in October. Time flies so fast. On another note, I wish I had zinnias in our yard. Maybe next year!ReplyDelete

Missy, I am not ready for our fall to be on it's way out...this week is suppose to get warmer, maybe 80. The leaves are all over and I truly need to try to rake...maybe make small piles to haul away. I do not bake much..only small amounts ...or I would eat it all the time. Did I ever tell you my will-power died. LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete

Laurie, Thank you for inviting me.LOL. I just got home from my daughter's and she was having roast too. Today sure is nice and pretty. Love this kind of weather. xoxo,SusieDelete
I am making room for that rose bush next spring. It is going to go behind the 3 season room so I can see it more. I am going to move all of them there.ReplyDelete
Sweetheart, I knew you would want this rose one day. I am trying to keep it going for you. I am always happy when I find one more bloom on it. It makes me think it just keeps doing it's best. This is a special rose. Love you honey, mommyDelete
Beautiful flowers! I love apples this time of year, too-Honeycrisp are our fav! :)ReplyDelete

I hope your daughter can get that rose back to her yard some day, Susie. The other flowers are so pretty, too.ReplyDelete
I love cinnamon and apples-that smell always reminds me of home and Fall. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday- xo Diana
Diana, Kathy just commented about taking it back and planting it by her sunroom so she can truly enjoy it. I hope I can keep it alive till then .:):) xoxo,SusieDelete
p.s. best weather, this weekend.
Very warm here today and it is going to be 81 tomorrow. Crazy weather. I love it though and wish it could go on like this forever. Your flowers are so pretty, Susie. xo LauraReplyDelete
Laura, Glad you had nice weather too. it has been so pretty I just can't get enough of this. Too bad there's so many flying bug things out .LOL Some of my flowers did very well this year. xoxo,SusieDelete
I love roses and this is a beautiful bloom. We had a warm summer like day here today! But it's getting cool at night. Sweet hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, It's is going to be near 80 on Monday. I hope some of my flowers last till the middle of Nov. xoxo,SusieDelete
I still have the knock out roses blooming up a storm here. Love all the blooming going on. It was such a nice day and 79 for tomorrow! Spent the day taking care of babies and poor Patches. Glad you had a pretty day, too!ReplyDelete
Tete, I saw your wonderful roses on your post, they do look good still. Yes, our Monday is to be a nice one also. We won't have many left, I am afraid. Poor cats. There must be something going around making them so ill. Take care of yourself too. xoxo,SusieDelete
I love zinnias, and that rose is such a pretty color, Susie. You must be giving it good care! Our weather has been mild this autumn. I'm still wearing short sleeves at home, just a sweater if we go up into the mountains.ReplyDelete
PS:We are fully adjusted to the high altitude. I sometimes get short of breath when hiking vertically above 11,000 feet, but if I rest I can keep it up.
Pat, when I was in Utah , last month. After doing a flight of stairs I would feel like a ran a mile. That would take some time for me to get used to. There did not seem to be any flat land.LOL. You are lucky for no big snow storm in Colorado by now. My sister lived in Lakewood for 18 years. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, Love that roe and I'm sure your daughter and grandson...love the fact that you have volunteered to be it's caregiver..smile... It will go home one day I'm sure, thanks to you! Of course zinnias are gorgeous this time of the year. My favorite color Yellow just makes me smile..ReplyDelete
I have some apples, that I want to make an apple cake. smells?? Oh yes...wonderful.
I hope your cake is a tasty treat Gert. I love apple crisp the best, but boy I remember my MIL 's pies. That lady could cook. xoxo,SusieDelete
Your flowers are pretty,Susie, love the rose!ReplyDelete
Thank you Sylvia. I hope to keep a few blooms till maybe the middle of next month....that may be asking too much. LOL. Today is suppose to be a pretty/warm day. xoxo,SusieDelete
The Zinnia's are so pretty, and I've never really appreciated them until I saw them on friend's blogs. I want to plant some this spring. Aahh, your salmon colored rose is so lovely, and it's still blooming in October! Those apples look so yummy too.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous flowers! You've really done well with the rose bush.ReplyDelete
I'm starving right now! :) Mentioning an apple pie, cinnamon, etc. ~ that is really fall food and I love it!
