The Glory of An Autumn Garden

But friendship is the breathing rose, 
with sweets in every fold.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

My favorite rose in the garden.  It's hardy and beautifully dainty at the same time.  It withstands the summer heat and the autumn chill.

The aster greets us as we pass 
With her faint smile 
Sarah Helen Power Whitman

Butterflies, bees and moths  in the garden.  Don't you just love it? And the Aster has become one of my favorite flowers

The burning bush is oh so lovely when it's color is brilliant red, but seeing her change so gloriously allows me to appreciate her even more for all the labor that goes into it. 

Earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

This wee hibiscus is sheltered in the bushes and even now is budding again.  How I have come to love these creations.

I'd rather have roses on my table,
than diamonds on my neck.
tEmma Goldman

And that pretty much says it all!!!  Have a wonderful week and don't forget to give the Glory to God!

Thanks be to God!

Please visit Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday and share in the beauty offered there.

Mosaic Monday

I'm been inviting you  to  join Monday WRites by Gillena Cox.    Today maybe you might join her in this adventure.


I have found a new place to play and invite you to join Mersad at Through My Lens.  Should be fun!

I'm also joining Catching Light for some lovely photos today.  Why don't you stop by?
