Autumn Views from My Garden

Having got back quite late Thursday and then family over for further celebration followed by a Firework Party with several house churches together tonight, and possibly no opportunity tomorrow because of important meetings, I have yet to sort out any of my photos from my birthday celebration trip. So what have I done, gone straight out into my garden to capture some of the Autumn beauty to share with you in the meantime.

Beautiful view into the garden, Barbara. The colors all look so much like autumn.

Happy belated birthday wishes. Don't they say that the 70s are the new 50s?

Rosebuds in November are always a treat.
Lots of roses still blooming on the Hudson River bike path when we were out being energetic today.
Looking forward to your Suffolk pictures.

Lovely autumn photos of your garden. Sometimes real life just takes over from blogging life.

Thanks for taking a moment to capture those colors. I know that here when you don't take pictures one day, the tree can lose half its beautiful leaves overnight! Have to get those pictures when you can. Hope your birthday was wonderful and the time with your family special.

Blessings,
Christi

Hi Barbara your mahonia is gorgeous! Love the colours. Autumn is definately my fav season, but I am making tentative steps now into making for Christmas.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about your birthday trip and the places you visited, so i'll get comfy and open the biccys. :-)

Welcome home.

Beautiful pictures! You have a gorgeous yard. I hope you had a fabulous birthday! We must know details about your birthday extravaganza. Bless you!

The colours are in full bloom, aren't they? And I note you still have leaves. They've all gone by now here!

BTW, one of the biggest concerns with Obama is if he does what he said would do when speaking to Planned Parenthood back in the primaries and which he said would be "the first thing" he'd do if becoming President--sign the "Freedom of Choice" (FOCA) act which would make America the most easy abortion country in the world where one could have an abortion anytime for any reason--by him removing any and all regulations and term limits, etc. Also, he has said that he will try to repeal DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) that Pres. Clinton signed way back, thereby forcing all Sates to recognize gay marriage, opening up the door for adoptions too, etc.

My family in England says none of the above is ever mentioned in the media there, so thought you might like to know!

If you include b'day photos, that would be fun, btw.
