Friday Fotos and Facts



You can just never tell what the weather will be like in GA.  It literally 
changes day-to-day.  And with the recently (very) warm sun, my knockout 
roses are blooming once again.







We are blessed to have some of our NY family in town this weekend. 
The weather looks to be wonderful for tomorrow's Pumpkin Fest in 
our neighborhood.  Plenty of pics to come!




This week, I was blessed with some beautiful blog awards.  I'm not the best
with the rules that follow the awards, but I did want to mention the 2 great gals
that sent them over.  If you love family, fotos, etc. (and I know you do),
take a moment to visit with...





Ramble Road {Ramblings}



And, finally...it's early Fall in GA.  Our colors are just starting to show...



This photo was taken on one of the nature trails in my subdivision.  Luke 
and I really love to stroll through here and look for squirrels and deer. 
(He's often looking for giraffes, too!)  It's so serene.


"Nature is too thin a screen; the glory of the omnipresent God bursts 
through everywhere."

Fabulous treatment of this beautiful rose blossom! I so hope that my potted floribunda buds will be able to bloom before the nightly freezes are just too hard.
