My Fall Yard and Fun with Grandkids!

The weather here in Southern California has been so beautiful. In the upper 90s during the days and cooler nights.

I thought I would show some happy flowers in my garden today.

This is my potting shed. I have given it some fall touch ups and a new face lift!
It use to be this dull brown color and I had it painted this summer

I have over 170 rose bushes in my garden. Every bush has blooms on it. I feed my roses in March, June and September. In January I trim every one to promote new growth for the next season. Here are a few rose pictures I took today.

Here comes Charlie the Stalker. If you are not paying attention he will sneak up on you and bite your toes!


Behind our vintage car garage we have the whole wall full of bougainvilleas


I have several pots in my patio with bright yellow Mums in them. I love Mums during the fall season

I have Mums all through the garden and they grown back every year. If you trim the bush round right before they start to develop their buds your bush will turn out like this!
This week I have had my son and daughter in law and two of my grand daughters visiting me from Utah. Even though I am recovering from a broken foot, I have enjoyed a night with them at Disneyland for their Disney Halloween Haunt.

They got to dress up. Here is Harper as Woody from Toy Story. This is her right before going into the Haunted House for the very first time. This is her brave face.

This is Piper. She dressed up like a Halloween Princess.




Grand children are so much fun!

Oh Honey, they are just precious little bundles of love! You are blessed.

Wow, I thought I had something here on the Ponderosa with my 38 rose bushes. I can't even imagine the smell of your yard. In this humidity my roses have to be sprayed twice a week....I know roses are hard work. My hats off to you sweetie!!!

God bless ya and have a fantastic "fall" day!!! :o)
