It's Tuesday

 Greetings Blogger Buds. 

Can you believe it's almost autumn? Followed closely by Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yikes it's almost 2022.

I've been on a butterfly bush jag. This is a dwarf Miss Molly and should level out at four feet.

Interestingly when it arrived it was purple. And when it bloomed out, it went from purple to white. Now it's finally settled into its true color. I wonder if the different colors had anything to do with the shock of shipping then being planted in hot weather. Or maybe, like when we dye our hair, it just wanted a change.😀

 

The boy found this wandering in his backyard. Don't ya love turtles?


Well. I couldn't find any more of the pumpkin spice muffins, but I did find this. 


 

That's all I've got. Hope things are more exciting--in a good way--in your neck of the woods.

Love your butterfly bush, and wonder what colour(s) it will bloom next year.
It is too long since I have seen a turtle.
I am so not ready for Christmas. Or for 2022.

Love the turtle. You can hardly call them cute, but they are so interesting.

So, your oven is preheating just waiting for pumpkin muffins to go in?

I love your butterfly bush. And I used to have a pet turtle as a kid.

We see a lot of box turtles in this area.

Wow, I'm impressed with your butterfly bush, dear. It is beautiful. I love anything pumpkin and it's that time of year to get my pumpkin fix. I see you have the bug, too!

I can't imagine finding a turtle in the back yard! Good find on the pumpkin cream cheese!

Beautiful butterfly bush. I had some excitement this morning, working on a celebration of life piece. Moved some things from my desk and must have gotten some blue paint on my hand which showed up on the invitation! 😱 Fortunately, the paint was still wet and I was able to lift it off the piece with damp Q-tips. Whew! I'll wait until after lunch t finish the piece to give my nerves time to calm down.

That reminds me, my flower beds need attention. But that will have to wait. I have so much blog catching up to do first!

I've come to the conclusion, butterfly bushes are a nice substitute for roses. No thorns. Nice fragrance. Not such a draw for pests--at least yet;)
At least, Christmas is a few holidays away:)
Take special care.

Thanks, HG:)

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. On the oven...exactly.
There's just something special about turtles, isn't there, Andrew?

Sandra Cox said...

Awww.

Sandra Cox said...

Aren't they fun? We did when we lived in the county. Not so much anymore:(

Sandra Cox said...

Thank you, dear Elizabeth!
Oh yes on the pumpkin bug;)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Christine. I hope it's as good as it looks.

Sandra Cox said...

Ack. Have a glass of wine on me.

A turtle in your backyard? That's pretty amazing.

Jeanie said...

Your butterfly bush is spectacular! I've taken to making my own cream cheese spreads these days. Yum!

Sandra Cox said...

I like the turtles. Not so much the snakes, that are unfortunately also backyard inhabitants:(

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, J. P.
Hugs,

Sandra Cox said...

That's sounds great. What flavors are you making?

The turtle is really pretty. Love the flowers and we have the magenta one, a dusty rose and a lavender butterfly bush.
