Hi everyone! Can you believe the first day of Autumn is this weekend? Thus my flaming red greeting today! I found it on Flickriver, via Google, and it's by J.T. I love Autumn weather, apples, pumpkins, and changing foliage. I love doing my Fall projects - cleaning up the flower beds, moving plants around so they'll look "perfect" the next year, and washing all the pots so they'll be ready in February to start the new seedlings!

What I don't like is seeing the final flower of the season, putting the tools away for the last time, raking leaves, and feeling that biting nip that tells you winter will be along before you know it. But, as King Solomon said, "To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven".

Now, what have I got to show you today? I picked up a new bird figurine at the thrift shop last week. It's the double one in the middle. For those who hadn't read the last post I did on these, the pretty stained-glass cabinet is over the dresser in my walk-in closet.

You've all heard me rave recently about the James Patterson Alex Cross series. Would you believe I read 16 books in just over a month? They're that good! I have one more to read, and the new one comes out in February. Well, Fran of Hey, Mom! What's for Dinner? contacted me and said she had some Patterson books she was getting rid of and would I like them. Duh, yeah I would! So she sent them along with a surprise in the box - a cute little cherries bowl! And, come to find out, Fran lives very close to me, too! Thanks again, Fran!

Love your birds Sue! They're so sweet. I've been reading James Patterson for years. You should slow down so you don't run out, LOL!

I won a giveaway of Fran's, a fantastic pillow she made. She's a terrific person. We meet the nicest people blogging! :-)

Hi there and Happy Rednesday AND Happy Fall - I am also enjoying Autumn bliss and determined to enjoy every second of it in case it gets hijacked by Winter, the way our spring was hijacked by Summer :)

Thanks for sharing all your lovely reds. I especially liked the cute birds!

I have a mystery plant over at SandwichINK. If anyone recognizes what it is, my senior mom would LOVE to know. She planted some mixed wildflowers as part of her gardening activities in the spring and we think it was from that. It's quite lovely and quite mysterious. :)

Have a great week and thank you again for another fun Rednesday!

Love to read James Patterson, but once I've read 'em, they're throwaways! :)

Sorry I missed the link up this week. I was combining my two blogs into one and making some changes, adding some pages and the week just got away from me. Enjoyed visiting everyone to see their Rednesday posts. Love the birds you have posted.
