  1. Hello Val:
    Tomorrow is most certainly another day but one which need not be given a thought as yet particularly as we have this autumn bouquet to consider and admire.

    A wonderful day with us too.

    1. Dear Rosemary, It is good fun.. but i worked two whole days trying to get it right, and its still not right. My grandaughter Audrey, just did it with the click of a finger. I have to remember the sequences. I will play around some more.. but its very time consuming.
      Thanks for the comment. I think i am nearly there.

    2. Rosemary, hello! It's ANNA. I just wanted to let you know that when I comment on your blog I press "publish" and the comment just disappears!

      I hope you read this, as I have no other way to contact you!

      CIAO!

  4. Hi Val!

    I wish I could leave all my worries behind!

    Your garden is still blooming, I see! This morning I had a look round: not very much left in the way of flowers, though the rose hips are bright red and "fat" and all my hydrangeas still look pretty!

    Val, I need to ask you a favour: could you please let Rosemary know that for some reason the comments I put on her blog kind of disappear? This also happens with another blog I recently started following, but I am ok with every other blogs. Please tell Rosemary that it isn't my fault if I can't comment on her blog!

    THANK YOU and HUGS

    ANNA

    1. Hi Anna,
      Some of the flowers are still blooming..but i dont have that many in my garden, its mainly roses and oleander trees, and a few little daisies here and there, with gyraniums.
      I would love some Hydrangeas..i had lots in south africa.
      I will pass on your message. xx

  10. Good Morning, Val. Your flowers are so pretty and that old tree in your header is wonderful. Thanks for your sweet message to me. Our dogs are such a part of our family and we will do anything, big or small, to take care of them. When Buddy got neutered, he went into the vet's office a happy guy and ever since he absolutely hates the vet with a passion. Such a difference from the loving dog he is in every other situation. It is more expensive to go to the vets than our human visits. Is it like that with you too..Oh, well, what are you going to do?..Keep smiling and Happy Monday..Judy

  11. Dear Judy,
    Indeed.. i spend more on my vet's bill than on myself.
    I do hope that your Buddy gets well soon. I dont know if i told you.. I have a little Buddy too. He comes between me and the upper farm. My Isaa is his mother.
    I do hope that jeffrey will be his old self. I am still repremanding myself for having him neuted.

  12. Val,
    Your flowers are so pretty, and you know I love the red rose. I can't believe they are still blooming for you. My pink roses are not blooming any more. Have a happy week, dear.

  14. How lucky you are, Val, to still have so much color in your garden! My morning glory vines are still blooming. And a few Black-Eyed Susans. But otherwise, everything has faded and is ready to sleep. Have a wonderful week!
