The time change has come and gone, my Sandwich Generation days are getting shorter but fuller, and the Sunflower House has definitely reached its end for the season. 

The Sunflower House was delightful but its time to trim it down and enjoy thoughts of next year

BUT, my senior mom's gardening projects are still doing quite well! Would you believe it! Thanks go her portable "raised beds garden," handy dandy garden wagons, and a covered patio, she is still enjoying tomatos and peppers with her salads!

My senior mom picked these tomatos just before a freeze last week - and is still enjoying the fruits of her gardening in NOVEMBER


My senior mom thought these red peppers would never turn red but she stuck with her good gardening and they finally did

And her autumn flowers are giving her smiles as she works at the kitchen sink.

Winter pansies can even have sweet autumn colors - love these flowers

Love these in our garden - fall mum - delightful autumn flowers

Love pink fall mums - definitely one of my favorite autumn flowers

Soon, the weather will be colder, snow might even appear, and even these sweet garden goodies will be a delightful memory. She's already wrapped up most of her hoses in her cute pink totes.

These big pink plastic totes make great storage for my senior moms gardening supplies over the winter

Come winter, it will be time to dive into the gardening catalogs, like Burpee.  Maybe even use some of my firewood in our wood burning fire stove.

The wood is stacked and ready for winter in the woodstoves

And, of course, enjoy our sweet family memories of gardening activities for grandparents and their grandchildren from this past summer, even as we are in the midst of future fun winter projects while preparing for Christmas. I do love my slim and easy to use Canon Powershot digital camera. I'm taking so many more pictures than I used to and my senior mom is LOVING that! 🙂 Speaking of photos, you'll find more cute ones at Sweet Shot Tuesday along with some great tips for getting sweet shots of those adorable grandkids. And did you notice the cute pink flowers and totes? They're for Pink Saturday with Beverly

Pink autumn flowers are perfect for Pink Saturday - great timing for these fall garden mums

    i can’t believe that little camera takes
    such beautiful photos. i might ask for
    one for Christmas, because it looks small
    enough to carry in your purse.

    such gorgeous flowers and veggies.


  1. What lovely and tasty garden beauties! I LOVE garden fresh tomatoes – they are the best!

  2. Hi Lea, Isn’t it GREAT! It goes with me everywhere and it’s so easy to use! It’s the first digital camera I’ve used that I really LOVE! (And with several photo experts in the family I’ve been exposed to LOTS! 🙂 ). It’s a real blessing. My favorite part, besides how easy it is to use, is the image stabilization that makes most of my shakes “go away” when it comes to getting the photos. 🙂 Have a blessed week!

  3. Hi Lizzi, They are, indeed, very yummy! 🙂

  4. Beautiful pics. I used to really enjoy gardening. I hope to one day to be able to garden again.

    Thank you for sharing.

    These are lovely and your garden goodies look wonderful. I’ve not inherited a green thumb and would faint – but squeal in delight – if I could actually grow something edible!


  5. Hi Darcy, I know what you mean. I’m not bad at roses, hydranges, and gardenias, but my senior mom is the gardening wiz when it comes to veges. It’s on my list, though, of things I’d like to learn – someday! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  6. Hi Michele, I’m hoping and praying you can soon as well. 🙂 Have a blessed week.

    You always take the most beautiful pictures! Thank you for your encouraging, sweet comment on my blog this week. Sorry I didn’t do TMT this week. I am thinking about giving it up … I’m in a very busy season for the next few months and just am not able to give it the attention it deserves. Still thinking …

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend …looking forward to reading about your wintertime activities and ideas!

  7. Hi Melinda, Thank you 🙂 I have to give plenty of credit to my wonderful easy to use Canon Powershot digital camera – it does such a nice job of making me look way better than I really am. 🙂

    I can certainly understand about the time issues. Will be praying for wisdom and enjoying reading other posts at your site 🙂 Have a blessed week! 🙂
