What's Growing Here?



I want to thank everyone for all the kind comments I've received on my new blog. You've all been wonderful and made me feel so welcome. I feel humbled and blessed to be meeting you, and I look forward to getting to know you all better. Thanks again.


I live in the desert and that means we don't have lots of Fall color around here, especially compared to many of you. We're in the high desert, so that means we do get some winter snow (sometimes) and we have a beautiful view of local mountains. It's also a balmy 75 degrees right now, although our nights have cooled down. I thought I'd share a few photos of some of the things growing around my house (besides kids).




A couple of pumpkins from my garden,





















A little rose bush,





And a few more flowers.
Blessings,
Marcia

My daughter would be so jealous of your pumpkins, if she saw them. She has been wanting to grow pumpkins for the Fair for a couple of years now, but we don't have the space.

75 and balmy sounds pretty nice - it's somewhere in the low 40's and rainy here- and the growing season is finished, enjoy your beautiful Autumn flowers!

Love your garden. Especially the mums and marigolds, so pretty for fall. I would love to have pumpkins too, for the grandkids....maybe next year. You do a good job of beautifing your desert surroundings.

Hi, Marcia, Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It certainly does seem like we like the same things! You know what they say--"Great minds think alike." ha ha. I noticed on your profile that you like the Walton's homecoming movie. I like that movie, too!! I have enjoyed visiting your blog, and will be sure and come back often. Have a wonderful week! Karen

Hi Marcia~~~

I love that you grew your own pumpkins! These are the first homegrown I have seen in all the blogs posting about fall. How nice!! You need a lot of space for them. I also enjoyed reading your post on carrot cake. Looks delicious...one of my favorite sweets. Somewhow I feel healthier eating it!!

Your weather sounds perfect; warm in the day and cool and night. And I want to say you have a lovely family!! Enjoy blogging. Join some of the events. It may take a long time to visit everyone but you will soon have many visitors yourself!! Have fun and thanks for stopping by!! :-)

Boy your pumpkins look great! We had a very wet summer and I don't think pumpkins like that. I only got one big one. The little teeny ones did much better.
