While Fall begins to wrap up its color, and the leaves are falling from the trees, we STILL have some beauty in our yard. Since we have not had a frost yet here on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, the roses are still blooming ---and it seems that these last blooms of Fall are as pretty as the first ones in the Spring. Our roses are really showing off now. Also, some of our Reblooming Irises have bloomed recently. Today, I'll show you six of our 'pretties' which have been in our yard during October.
Above is one of our new roses, TOUCH OF CLASS. Since it is fairly new, this is the first time it has bloomed for us. Below are others, plus a couple of our Irises. Hope you enjoy the October Flowers.

Last night, as we came home from Cookeville, we saw two pretty sights in the sky:
Sunset ---toward the west, and...
...a full moon ---toward the east.. How's that for a great evening????
