Love the purple on your chair! When I was a teen I had a bedroom in this color. I still love it!

Nutty Gnome

Purple is my favourite colour and I so want to come and sit in that lovely rocking chair please!

I don't know why I haven't come across your blog before, but I've really enjoyed reading it today - thank you :)


I think at this time of year when we are anticipating the first frosts that every extra day of blooms is really appreciated


You can't go wrong with purple. Purple is my favorite color. (Like Tina when I was a kid my room was purple.) It's the perfect color for a rocking chair!


Kathleen, The chair looks super! I love purple, too! But, you knew that! I would love to be in your garden seeing these charming flowers~Thanks for the shout out.xxoogail

Hi Kathleen! Purple majesty! I love that ornamental kale and always intend to plant it. (Would it do well with 6 hours of sunlight? That's considered full sun...)

I love your photos - so I'll wait for more. ;-)


You mamaged to capture so much purple. Looks great. Love to have the chair and birdhouse.

Northern Shade

I like the vignette in your first photo, a sweet little vintage look. The butterfly looks super when backlit by the sun, since it shows all of the delicate details on the wings. The aster colour is beautiful. Did you set your alarm for that one? :)


I love shades of purple. That chair is so charming and yes very inviting. :)


Now that rocker I would love to sit in!


It seems like your weather this year has made up for last year's. Now I hope we'll get the same treatment from Mother Nature next spring. It's been just pouring here the last couple of days.
I love all of your purples and I like how the chair looks now.
