Autumn flowers

 Chrysanthemum koreanum ‘Sheffield Pink’, aka Dendranthema morifolium
 I love these chrysanthemums - very late to bloom, 
they add color to the garden at a time when most of the trees 
have lost their leaves.

 Lysimachia ciliata ‘Firecracker’
This is the first year I have had beautiful fall foliage color 
on this plant.  In summer, the leaves are deep purple, 
with tiny yellow flowers.

Aster Peter iii
Even when tumbling over, they make a colorful show.

Added to a bowl of apples and pears, 
along with some Northern Sea Oats.

 Flanked with pie pumpkins for a Halloween dinner.

The occasion was a visiting cousin who couldn't get home to
New Hampshire because of Hurricane Sandy 
so spent several days with my parents
and dinner here on Wednesday night 
with my parents and another cousin.  
It was a nice reunion.


  1. Dear Ginnie, I am so sorry to hear of Gerrit's passing. The story of the safe return bracelets and your new bracelet from his daughter's was very moving. Your parents are adorable as is your faithful fluffy companion. Wishing you well, Tammy

  2. Ginnie! I've been thinking about you a lot this week - it's great to hear from you. What lovely flowers - we don't have any left in Wisconsin due to the many sub-freezing nights. Hope autumn is treating you well. How nice to be able to see your cousin, even though the cause was not a pleasant one. Have a wonderful Sunday.

  3. a lovely floral and fruit arrangement----so you!



Thank you!
