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!

Suzy, a couple of my clematis are in bloom right now, and we had snow yesterday!! They are tough little guys!

I love the bowl you used for the ravioli :-) Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for the flashback.

Suzy, love the pictures, especially the one of the fluffy seedheads.

Your ravioli dish looks delish! I love mushrooms of any kind.

I have a couple of rose buds and snapdragon buds but I don't know if I'll see another flower in the garden this year either.

Beautiful Flashback, Suzy, and that dinner looks delish!

NOTHING in bloom here... But I'm glad you still have some lovelies to look at!
The color of the maples are so beautiful.. and the sky shots do make you wish it would stay like this for a couple more months!
Great post Suzy!

Kathleen said...

What your dippage will be?? LOL
You are funny, and absent too often..
Hope all is well.
Now get back in the kitchen and rattle those pots and pans!:)

Oh, Suzy, what a fantastic November you HAD. I hope you weather changes and your area gets some of the good weather that you had then. Love the sky pictures. ... Your "thrown together" dinner looks very tasty.
