Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for October shows another favorite place to visit anytime of year, but especially this month. This photo of mine shows you "AUTUMN in the SMOKY MOUNTAINS of Tennessee".
There's not too much Fall Color in our area yet --but we do have color right here in our yard!!!! I took these photos the end of Sept/first of Oct ---so today, I'll share some of our 'color' to you. Above is one of our Reblooming Irises. This one's name is Blatant --and we love seeing Irises blooming in the FALL of the year!!!!! Isn't this one pretty?
This 'color' is one of our gorgeous Roses, named Veteran's Honor. This has always been one of my favorite roses. It's been blooming like crazy lately. Roses are at their prettiest here in the Spring AND Fall. They love sunshine but don't necessarily love the heat of Summer. Fall is a great time for Roses!!!
Here is a close-up of Veteran's Honor... this rose is absolutely PERFECT!!! Looks like Velvet, doesn't it?
This photo shows some of our favorite Fall blooms ---our Autumn Joy Sedum. We have this little beauty in several places around the yard. This one starts out sorta blue in color, then turns to a light pink, then darkens, and by the end of Fall, the color is a burnt orange. PERFECT colors for Fall!
Here is a close-up of one of the Autumn Joy Sedum blooms.
Our Pink Dogwood tree in our front yard is beginning to turn to its gorgeous reds. I love this photo since you can still see some of the green in some of the leaves..
Finally, here's a picture of our yard.. I was standing out in the street --so that I could get a picture of the Veteran's Honor Rose blooms. In this picture, you can also see the Pink Dogwood as it turns --and also some yellow color on the trees behind and around our home...
I'll post some new yard photos --as we get more and more Fall color. Now that we have had some much cooler weather, that usually helps the trees to turn!!!
