November 01, 2018 arrived with warm weather and leaves me with the promise that frosty mornings will soon be the norm.

So many shades of red. Which one is prettier?

My dogwood trees have transitioned very slowly from a vibrant green into a deep red.  If wine came from dogwood trees, this might be the color.

An empty oak spreads bare limbs across a blue sky.  My favorite shade of blue, like the periwinkle crayon in a box of Crayolas.

It’s not every day you see a triceratops.

Our church,  Fountain Inn First Baptist hosted its annual Trunk or Treat on October 28. This inflatable costume was a sight to behold. The mom walked along guiding the rear legs. I asked her where she found such an outfit. She never missed a beat when she replied, “Amazon.” Well. O.k. then…It looked like something I would be listing the next day on eBay.  WOW!


Ugly or tacky? Is there a difference?                                 Ugly sweaters seem to be a staple in the  holiday season. This was the first time I’d seen a retailer willing to market such an item.  (Maybe I should get out more???) According to the tag, this one lights up. My face lit up when I saw the price was $56! I’ll pass on it. Seems the price is just as ugly as the sweater. Do you suppose it comes with extra batteries…




Saw this interesting display recently.  It made me smile. I’ve never seen such a cute pineapple.  Perhaps this is a new variety. The same store had okra that was large and purple and doing a great impersonation of an egg plant. Humor is all around us and I do love to laugh.






It is hard to decide which face of the dogwood is the most appealing.  It’s hard to beat those lovely ivory petals in Spring but these leaves are gorgeous.





Imagine my surprise when I spotted these two standing side by side at my daughter-in-law’s house.  Geri knows I will be making an effort to propagate this azalea.  Unless you’ve bought the “Encore” variety, you just don’t see this bloomer in November.





Perhaps the last of they hydrangea for this season. I’ll take these surprises any day of the week.





This cornucopia was spotted at Hobby Lobby. Let’s not forget to be thankful for the many blessings in our lives.

America is the greatest country on earth, in my humble opinion. Don’t take it for granted.

Until next time, let’s pray for each other and pray for this nation we call home.
