Welcome! I love this chipmunk illustration - just had to use it again!

It's been a slow-starting Autumn this year in New England - it still feels like late Summer. I just hope Winter doesn't surprise us! I have a few Autumn flowers to share today.

A nice deep red mum ~

Sedum 'Autumn Joy' matches the shed nicely!

Pineapple Sage getting ready to open~
I don't know about the rest of the country, but this Sage always opens in November for me. It's early this year. Pineapple Sage is an annual - I take cuttings each year to grow over the winter.

Now let's see if I can persuade Mister to mow the lawn! ;)

It's going to be so sad to say goodbye to the flowers once we get that first hard frost, isn't it? I LOVE the deep red color of those mums!
Happy REDnesday,

I like mister's old gas can. If he does not have time to mow, call me. I did all my yard yesterday. Hope it will be the last mowing for the year.

I love the gas can.. I collect all kinds of old plunder.. My Computer went wild and kept saying I was not posted.. sorry that I have two links here.. I hope you have a great day!

I love your Autumn pictures full of sweet and red fall foliage. Our autumn is in full swing - and I am reveling in it. Today's post at SandwichINK has some of the leaves my grandkids helped me rake, but I posted to yesterday's with the fun googly glasses I found for Halloween treats.

Our autumn has more reds this year than last - yours, too, it looks like. Thanks for a fun visit :)

The Pineapple sage is an annual here too. I love the smell of it as well as the brilliant flame color. Ours blooms in late August in Kansas. Another great red day. Smiles...Renee

Pretty red flowers Sue! I don't have any nice flowers anymore- only pathetic ones.. We've had 4 frosts and they barely get nipped where they are located but I still feel so sorry for them. :(

Come say hi for Dotty Hop Day! My dots are red again this week. (Surprise, surprise!) ♥

First, I'm so sorry I had problems uploading a picture. I just couldn't get it to "take".. hence the double entry.
I have so little red in my home (not sure why) so when I come across pictures with a lot of red I always thinking of coming here.
Have a great week!

Hi Sue! I am sorry, I did not mean to enter twice. The first link up didn't work so I tried again. Anyway, I love your deep red mums and the seedum and sage too. Happy Rednesday and thanks for hosting!
