HEADER INFORMATION

The Header Picture was taken in October of 2016 and shows the CHIMNEYS area (all decorated for Autumn) of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. This was BEFORE the horrible WILDFIRES which began here in November and destroyed SO much.

Pretties in our Yard 10/16/16

Our Home on 10/16/16;  The pink dogwood in front (on left) is doing great --since it gets water from our sprinkler... We are also trying to keep the grass as green as possible in front.
Before we left for a short trip to the Smokies and Cherohala (pictures to come) this past week,  I took some pictures around our yard (10/16/16)  to share with you today... With the drought,  our colors in this area are not as good as they usually are (lots of brown and dead leaves)---but we do have some pretty things blooming to show you.  Hope you enjoy!!!!  You can click on them to see enlargements.


I love watching the DOGWOOD change colors in Fall.  The leaves will eventually be a dark burgundy color.  



APRICOT NECTAR ROSE  (Our Roses have done great thanks to all of the attention and watering which George gives them.)



From our deck,  we enjoy seeing the colors change along the GOLF COURSE Fairway.



I love our MAPLE Tree in Fall.  I think Maples are some of the prettiest trees in Autumn.



Maple Leaves --up close and personal;  So many pretty colors!



CLARENCE IRIS  blooming in our yard;  I love our Re-Blooming Irises when they bloom again in Fall.



The AUTUMN JOY SEDUM is now a RUST color... (Remember that these start out white,  then turn pink,  then a brilliant red --and finally a rust color.)



Another picture of our home on October 16, 2016



DOLLY PARTON ROSE



Another picture showing our pretty PINK DOGWOOD in Fall



My son and daughter-in-law (Jeff and Dawn) gave me this gorgeous hanging basket for Mother's Day ---and we have watered it almost daily to keep it alive... Isn't it pretty?



LEMON REFLECTION ROSE



A NEW IRIS in our yard this year;  This one is named LEMON DUET.  Isn't it pretty?



Finally,  here's a close-up picture of the front of our home  all decorated for Fall!!!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some pictures of our little home on October 16, 2016...  We love living in this area of Tennessee ---and as much as we love to travel,  it's ALWAYS nice to come back home!

I will share pictures from our two October trips soon...

Hugs and Blessings,
