I Like Thursday Post # 27 ~ Fall in New England

Good Thursday Morning!

I am late this morning for my Thursday fun with the

I was up late last night sewing together the rows for my 

The colors are actually much warmer.
It has been gray here and today is a rainy day here and not a great day for photos

My garden has been happy, though.
My coral rose is still blooming.
This is a favorite.

One of the new climbing roses has started to bloom, too. 
This one is an open single rose, dark pink with a yellow orange center.
I planted it to supplement an older rose that has been struggling this year
and dropped most of its leaves in the heat.
I am hoping the two will live harmoniously together.

My other new roses are not blooming but they are growing long runners 
that are reaching up my trellis and gate.

Over the weekend my hubby sealed our driveway
so it looks black and renewed.
It became a neighborhood work day.
My hubby bought the stuff and helped our neighbor up the street who
had her driveway paved last year at the same time as ours.
A man diagonally across the street who is a landscaper for the city and has
 experience maintaining his own driveway came over to help. 
No photos.  I did not want to interrupt the work by putting a camera in everyone's faces.
It was a perfect day for it, dry and breezy after the hurricane swept by out to sea.

My hubby surprised me with this new coffee mug yesterday.
I love it.
Pumpkin season here in New England. 
Apples and corn and summer harvest, too.
My favorite time of the year.

My purple aster perennial is starting to bloom. 

My purple clematis is putting out its few last blooms. 

I am enjoying this lovely

My day to show my project is tomorrow!

It is a Happy Thursday.

I hope you are enjoying your day, too.

how beautiful. All of it. I love the neighbors helping each other, it's the only way we'll all find true belonging and happiness. Your path and driveway are very clean and tidy, and the rose will grow and flourish like a fairy tale. Good morning pumpkin, I'd like to be called pumpkin by my husband. LOVE fall and today's temps make me think it's possible here. Last year we went from too hot to snow in a day. I miss our yearly trips to NE in fall... the quilt is really gorgeous.LeeAnna

Hi Pat! I had to come back and see your likes for yesterday. The batik quilt has turned out beautifully. I'll bet your husband loves it especially since he picked out all of the fabrics. Your roses look so gorgeous, and that coral one is so rich looking. I'll bet your yard smells wonderful, too. ~smile~ Roseanne
