I think with so many nice bloggers to visit...three photo's is enough.
(I told myself this ...)
NEWS FLASH  ( was to us Westerners!)
We awoke to thunder and lightening this morning..then a heavy downpour, which left many residents without power for awhile.  By late morning, some were still without power.
It cooled our weather down considerably.

Had I known how easy it was to just ask some of you out there to send me a bit of your rain..I would have done it LONG ago!  
Thank you, you little sweethearts!

I tried ivy at first but couldn't see my Rooster and pretty fern was perfect.
Sooo wha' daya think? :)  I love it!  Nothing unusual..but still...for three dollars?? 

I also bought two big ivy's for the old wagon. 

Another view.
Now for a few pumpkins...:)  Ok..I'll wait a bit longer..but not much!!
NOT much! 
Yes, this is just the beginning... FALL is on the way..just a few more weeks....

Lest you forget how cute I am!  Love Mele~
Lotsa love,
Shoot!  I forgot to join Marty at her "Inspire Me" party" 

 Come see how inspired you will become..
A Stroll Thru Life
