Fall Gatherings


Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea for a few minutes. Each year the week before Thanksgiving we start our "fall gatherings" and gather up all of the pumpkins and Fall flowers to take to our  church to use to decorate tables for the annual Community Thanksgiving dinner for anyone in need of a meal.  Most of the pumpkins are donated to our local food bank or to the soup kitchen to use for pies and soups.



                      Bentley, my Studio Assistant, is waiting in the garden to help gather.









Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those following my blog.

Wishing you and your family a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving.  Erin

Everything looks lovely - as usual.

I am mad at myself after reading that you donate the pumpkins. We had to prep our house for fumigation the day after Halloween and I simply tossed all of my pumpkins & gourds in the trash. Next year I will definitely donate them.

Erin, I've been thinking about you and wondering where you've been. Now I see ... you've been setting the sights in your garden. Aren't pumpkins happy?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Erin. . . . . . . and of course sweet Bentley.
Your garden looks as colorful as ever - really beautiful.
NC is not very colorful yet in our area - still much too warm. Sadly the western area is seeing many forest fires which of course will cause many problems, but hopefully no property damage or injuries. I have friends at Lake Lure who have been evacuated - praying their home, and of course their neighbors' and friends' homes are not damaged

Hugs - Mary
