My Beautiful Rio Samba Rose

Sunday, October 09, 2011

This is the end of this year photo of my beautiful Rio Samba rose by Jackson Perkins. I brought this rose with me from North Carolina. Before moving to NC, I had 2 of these rose bushes but had to leave them. One rose changes to all of these colors on one stem and finally ends up as pink. I want to share this beauty with all of you, my spark friends. Have a great day. Nancy

Pumpkin Patch Pictures 10-8-11

Saturday, October 08, 2011

Well, the weather was "Boo"tiful for the pumpkin patch and the fall festival today. The Country Collections store was fabulous with lots of items and all things discounted by 10%. We did take the free wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and I bought a pumpkin. There was a bake sale and Larry bought an apple dumpling. We had a wonderful time and it was great to get away for the day. I went to rehab to visit Mom on our return and she was really surprised to see me. I told her yesterday that I may not get back in time for a visit today. She was really surprised and very HAPPY.....I took her outside on the patio for a while since the day was so nice and she enjoyed that.

Here are pictures we took at the pumpkin patch:

Nancy (me) with my pumpkin--you can hardly see it beside me-not in front

    I don't think I've been to a pumpkin patch since I was in elementary school. Looks like you had a great time. So glad your mom enjoyed your surprise visit and being outside for awhile. I'm sure you made her day. Hope you have a great evening! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

Fall Festival/Pumpkin Patch today

Saturday, October 08, 2011

I love the fall season of the year. Today, there is a BIG fall festival just about 10 minutes from us. There is a big store (3 floors) on lots of land) that has so many items for sale. It is called Country Connections, so that tells you what kind of store it is. They have one whole floor with Amish made furniture that is just beautiful. There is a FREE wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and they are making apple butter, apple dumplings, brunswick stew, BBQ chicken, bake sale, etc. You can go to the store and spend hours just looking. I am really looking forward to today. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Lots of Tomatoes Still

Thursday, October 06, 2011

Yesterday I cleaned up the garden areas in our backyard. I took off all of the tomatoes that were left and raked everything out. It sure looks good. I can't believe how many tomatoes were still on the vines. Some of them are still as large as in the beginning......our tomato crop was really abundant this year. I am posting a picture of what was collected......now I just have to decide what to do with them; there are lots of green ones.

    Thats a LOT of tomatoes! I can't eat tomatoes...they will give me heartburn quicker than just about anything except for onions and garlic.

    Enjoy! I am very, very jealous. Most people around our area didn't have very good tomato crops (myself included). I missed it.

    Oh you are so lucky! My tomatoes did not produce too well this year due to the fact it was so very hot. I love the basket full of tomatoes.

Family Picture Frame I Made for Mom

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I forgot to post a photo of the "Family" picture frame that I put together for Mom today. There are 3 photos: The 5 generation photo, A photo of me and my hubby Larry, and a photo of my brother Al and his wife Peg. Mom really liked it and had lots of smiles on her face.

The frame says: Family--the most important thing in life is family.
