Red and Gold


This is what Garden Girl looks like from the side of the
house.  The roof line is where my little three windowed
nook is in the kitchen for my desk.  She's been beautiful to
look at with the leaves swirling around her!
You can see the red and golden crab apples are
really showing off now that the leaves are falling!
I sure am enjoying this beautiful fall!

    1. I had no intention on bidding on her at auction but when she was going for just a little bit, I
      started bidding. So glad I did...I've enjoyed her every day since....just one of those very few things
      you know you'll never tire of...

      Are your leaves swirling there?

    2. They are indeed. A lot came down in our recent storm.
      She was obviously meant to be yours. I still remember the story of her being heaved and hauled home... and then having to be grounded slightly when she was settling. Now she looks like she's always been there!

    3. Yeah, she fell over once during a flooding storm. Can't believe she didn't break. She has a good foundation under her now!

  2. She's got the perfect spot! How was the weather today for your auction?

    1. It was quite chilly, damp and grey! Brr. But at least it didn't rain and it wasn't windy..

    2. Very true. You should've seen me . . . I lost my debit card for awhile and was making the leaves swirl on their own just running in and out of stores trying to find it! LOL!

    3. Oh no! So glad you found it! Funny now, but not at the time!

    1. Well, we need to see some pictures, don't you think?

  5. She sure shows her stuff
    As the leaves fall and not white fluff
    Let the fall last and last
    Colorful is way more fun than a snow blast

    1. Even I can enjoy the fall of leaves
      but soon there will be a colder breeze
      as snow flakes start to be seen
      even though you think they're mean.

    2. Blogger must be taking a nap...haha.....wish we could send some rain your way. It's amazing how much we get
      and other states are desperate for it.

  7. Once again let me say how much I enjoy "garden girl." I like those kinds of statues in a garden, or along a pathway. Just makes for a nice surprise when I walk up on it. And your trees are beautiful... I may have to go find me a couple of crabapple trees for my little orchard. And maybe a statue, too, while I'm at it!!

    1. Well, I'm happy to hear you enjoy and appreciate her! Did I tell you that we figured out she's a fountain? The water would come out of the gargoyle's mouth! Too bad we couldn't hook her up like that...but there isn't even a spigot on that side of the house.

  8. Your garden girl is so classy out there, no matter what the weather!
    It's been rainy and windy here too, knocking down most of the leaves.

      does them all with a smile on her face...haha....

  9. You are rocking fall! Our leaves are gone sadly with the crazy winds.

    Happy Halloween!

  11. Beautiful. We too are blessed with gorgeous Autumn this year. I am soaking myself in it. And pasta here for lunch today :-) happy Halloween day! See you in November ;-)

  12. I am still convinced that Garden Girl is Aphrodite with her lion, Hippomenes. For proof go to http://www.dcmemorials.com/index_indiv0006555.htm The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and look at the Pediment above the main entrance, then look up her story on Wikipedia.

    I love the picture of the crab apple tree.

  13. The colours really are spectacular this year, here too. The apples look like Christmas baubles! I wonder if they will stay on until then?
