Flashback and Foodie Friday ~Fall Flowers and Food
This Flashback Friday I'm flashing back to last November. There were still a few pretties in the garden like this Abutilon. It spent the winter in my garage and it took all summer, but its blooming again!
There were some spent flowerheads that added some interest
And a little foliage color from one of my maple. I always think of my friend Karen when I look at them because she grew them from seeds! She's the maple queen for sure and has lots and lots of special maple babies.
My african daisy was still looking pretty
And this clematis decided to put on a grand finale
At the beginning of last November we must have been experiencing some beautiful weather..unlike today which is windy, rainy and blustery. The sky was so blue and the clouds had the neatest patterns
I'd love for every fall day to be just like this one must have been
When I look at this picture I see shimmery gold against turquoise blue with pearly white accents, but I know Randy probably looks at this picture and sees something entirely different...all he sees is at least a months worth of work with the leaf vacuum!!!
More leaves for Randy to clean up....
No recipe, it was just a quick meal I threw together...storebought refrigerated ravioli and a sauce made from white asparagus, portobella mushrooms, roasted peppers and a little cream.
If you have a flashback you'd like to share please add your link below!
I'd like to let everyone know about a fun event coming up next month on December 16th to give you plenty of advanced warning to determine what your dippage will be. My friend Marsha over at Marsha's Kitchen and Marsha's Garden is celebrating National Chocolate Covered Anything Day and would love to have you participate too. Read her post HERE that tells all about it.
I'm participating this week in Foodie Friday over at Designs by Gollum. Go check out all of the foodie posts!
