Look at this sky....low humidity, super clear skies, 74 degrees yesterday.
The mums are so full and crowding each other. I like this one.
I like to mix the colors together for a nice bouquet.
I have two of these orange colored mums and they are bold in color.
As you can see I absolutely need to thin these mums out more. I did in early spring, but you sure can't tell it.
Our grandson Brock, his daughter Layla on Emma's shoulders, Me and Papaw Teddy Bear.
We had taken our daybed to Brock's on Sunday. He was getting Layla a big girl bed now.....so we gave them the daybed...that way when Emma goes over to visit she can sleep on the trundle part in Layla's room. Emma's a wonderful aunty to Layla...she can make her laugh. She plays with the stuffed animals to get Layla playing also.
Hope everyone is having good weather and some fall beauty. Please be kind . XO
Yep, the weather has been so nice the last couple of days, but not so much today! I can't tell if I just heard thunder or a low flying jet! Your Mums are beautiful. Ours are not looking so good. Nice looking family Susie.ReplyDelete
Hi Cindy, It's raining here and rather dark out...I do not like that. I am hoping for sunshine this afternoon. My mums are too tall and want to collapse. Not so pretty then. I think by them being so crowded it keeps them up longer. Thank for the nice comment. I do love my grandkids. Layla is my g.g.daughter. :) Blessings, hope you guys are doing well. xoxo, SusieDelete
I just discovered your lovely website and became a Follower! Love all the beautiful flowers you posted! Plus, you have a beautiful family, too!ReplyDelete
I also noticed your favorite movie picks listed on the left column! I absolutely love Emma and Pride & Prejudice, too! Have you seen the PBS Masterpiece version of Emma, too? While I, too, LOVE the Gwyneth version, this one is truly fantastic, as well.
I am so delighted to have discovered your site, and if you have a minute or two, you are welcome to come and stop by mine. Here's the address... itsawonderfulmovie.com
Have a Blessed Day.... God bless!!! Net
I dropped in on your"blog" is it a big commercial?? Are you a movie critic.?? What? Bless you too. xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, Susie, What a beautiful family you have! And don't they need those beds/books/shoes/cars all too soon??!ReplyDelete
We have one coming to spend tonight with us, and we have some Halloween decorating plans.
Thank you racheld. The children were so appreciative of the daybed...it just did our hearts good to help them out. Emma promised to come during fall break and spend an evening with papaw and me. I miss her...did you see she is as tall as I am now. Time flies when we long for it to slow down. Blessings to you and your little ones...hope your crafting is fun. xoxo, SusieDelete
It's great weather here too, temperatures in the 60s and 70s. We are supposed to get rain for the next 10 days. All those weeks without rain and now the weather is making up for it. I can't complain because we need it.ReplyDelete
Your mums are just lovely. I had mums for years and then one year they just did not come back.
Your grands and great are so cute. I can't believe Layla is big enough for a big girl bed. How time flies!
Have a good day!
Kathy, I wish the rain could have been here and there...not all at once. LOL. Layla is 1 1/2 years old already...the time went way too fast, Kathy. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
How fun for Layla to get a big girl's bed now. Such sweet pictures of her. Are those daisies, Susie? They are so pretty, and remind me of my dear mom. Emma is going to be a wonderful aunt, and she makes me smile every time I see pics of her. :)ReplyDelete
Sheri, My daughter Liz sent me a picture of Layla asleep in her new bed with her new Cinderella covers...so cute, I almost cried. Brock was so very thankful for the bed and helped Ted to put it together. Do you see how tall Emma has grown, she's tall as me. Breaks my heart. If only time could slow down. Blessings, love, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a happy family photo. I know you love having them close to spend time with. Keeps you young! Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, They are not near close enough. LOL. I wish we all lived in the same town ....we could have more dinners and lunches together. I could maybe babysit once in awhile. Emma is as tall as I am now. Waaa...time is flying by. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Hi Susie! Your mums are just gorgeous and I love all of the different colors. You have a lovely family and that little Layla is adorable. You look as pretty as a picture. Thank you so much for popping in to see me.ReplyDelete
be a sweetie,
Shelia, Oh my gosh, you are so kind. Thank you. We love our families don't we? I could be around my grandkids everyday...well maybe not all day but everyday. LOL. I saw the faces of your grands in one of your last blogs and I could tell they looked like you. That's a good feeling. I always say the ones of mine who have good eyebrows favor me. LOL. That my good feature. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Your mums are beautiful Susie. Love the fall color! What a cute family.ReplyDelete
Thank you Jann. I do like to mix the mums for a pretty bouquet. Emma has grown so tall she has caught up to me. I wonder if she'll grow as tall as her brother Brock.:):) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Your mums are as pretty as you are...and love the kids. Emma has grown so much this year! Love this weather! We had a bit of rain last night and early this morning, but it clears off, clouds up and keeps going. Love fall!ReplyDelete
Tete, You are too sweet. LOL.. I am loving NO AC...It's been raining on and off as the system spins back around over Indiana. The last of the container petunias are hanging on but no so perky. I need to get my scarecrows out and dusted off. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Gorgeous mums, such vibrant colors. And a great family photo. Glad you had a wonderful time together.ReplyDelete
Karen, I truly love my family time. We need it to keep us going. I am going to make a big bouquet of my mums for my sisters. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Layla looks a lot like her dad. How sweet that Emma enjoys Layla so much. I always enjoyed my nieces/nephews too.ReplyDelete
I am amazed that Layla is already 1 1/2 yrs. old. Where did that time go? I love all the kids in our family. Love having time with them. Especially Emma and Savannah...they are my youngest granddaughters. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love the beautiful flowers and she is a beautiful young lady. They grow up to fast. I'm so glad you're getting some nice weather. I do believe Fall has arrived here also but we sure do need some rain. Happy Fall dear friend. xoReplyDelete
Susie, I wish those that need rain could get some...my gosh the east coast near is in for heavy rains. We are in a pinwheel of rainy weather. I hope you are doing well and able to have some joy each day. Love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Nice looking family! Such a pretty day and flowers. It suddenly turned rainy and cool here. I think it is supposed to warm up tho.ReplyDelete
Hi Linda, The cool was good but the rain makes it almost too chilly for me. We did get some outside things done today. I can right now hear the neighbor pulling the corn wagons and Combine into his barn lot. His uncle helps him. They been busy since the rain stopped this morning. It's 8:00 pm...Hope you had a good day..I know you like to read...these cool rainy days are good for that. Blessings,love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I have never been able to grow mums in my garden...yours are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Vee, Mums are pretty hardy in our area. I need to get rid of some of ours...they can be up-keep to them.. I am getting to were I am not as interested in tending to gardens. I guess I go thru spurts like that. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
