Happy Friday Everyone! :)

I wanted to say a BIG "THANK YOU" to everyone who left such heartwarming comments on my last blog post. It was a tough piece to write but I felt it was the right time. I am a pretty private person and not many people around me know what I deal with but I just felt if it could help anyone then it was worth writing. You guys rock, thank you again, it is amazingly awesome to know that you are there, sending your Love, cheers, T. :)

And now to Friday Flowers! :)

We have had lovely weather this week and some of our tomatoes have ripened, YAY!

The leaves are starting to Fall from the big Oak Tree in our Garden and there is definitely an Autumnal feel to the early morning (not that I see it that often He! He! :)

So, here are the last of the Flowers to grace our Garden this year. I have had so much fun showing you all around. But even though our Garden is done, there are still some beautiful things I have to share with you in the next few weeks. :)

So, stay tuned, as they say :)

Rose among the Lavender

Snapdragons, the kids loved to make these "Talk" by gently squeezing the sides :)


Verbena, I love this one because it starts a deep peachy colour and goes to an almost peachy white, gorgeous!

Coleus and Geranium

Last Pink Rose

Double Delight Roses (The best Fragrant Roses, I think! )


Scented Tobacco Plants

I am having so much fun playing with the angles and light in my photos right now :)

Hanging Baskets are still looking good :)

This is my Fav. right now. The Hydrangea is changing to its Fall colours and the low afternoon background light coming thru the trees is so much fun to play with :)

Just an extra pop of colour to get us thru the next few weeks :)

When I looked at this Rose I immediately thought of a Nuns wimple, like Sally Fields as the Flying Nun :)

Mimosa Tree or the "Pink Fluffy Stuff" :)

A few shots of this beautiful Japanese Maple Leaf :)

And I couldn't resist adding yet another Spiders Web, as we have so many. This one was huge approx. 18" (not the spider He! He!) But seriously they are big enough!!

Lost count of how many I walked into this week :(

I hope you enjoyed Friday Flowers!

Have a Lovely Weekend everyone, see you next week :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Thanks Poppy for your lovely Friday Flowers, it's always so nice to come to your blog and be presented with such a gorgeous bouquet. I especially like the pink and white roses, they are incredible.

It was nice that you shared something that haunted you, there are so many who suffer from CFS but the hardest part is that those around them just don't understand and can not comprehend what they are going through. As it is said; we never fully understand the life of another until we've walked a mile in their shoes. I think your blog was an inspiration and gave hope and support to so many other CFS and fibromyalgia sufferers. Bless you.

I love the roses and lavender combo pics...delightful! We have far too many spiders creeping about too, always seem to run into them in the am, walking under our arbor to the cars...blah!!
Come by this NW Treasury Team, they just started about a month ago..
Cheers, Jenni
