Garden Charlie is an old friend.
He's been a part of our Autumn and Garden family for many years.
He's watched over our gardens.
And in more recent years, Garden Charlie has been the Autumn ambassador.
Welcoming family friends and Fall to our home.

I'm awaiting the meadows change this year. Not quite.
It's still been warm, and even hot.
Of course, the sunflowers are beginning to dry out as well. Saying 'Goodbye' to summer.
There is still time to make a Witchy~Poo silhouette.
These two silhouettes are from Gardner Village.
Making a similar silhouette is on my 'to~do' list for Fall.
So very many lovely, and wonderful things about this time of year.
The changing colors, the crafts, the food, the smells, and the fun!
We'll be finishing up some things on our list that require summer temperatures, like finishing the painting on the driveway and cleaning out borders and flower beds.
However, Garden Charlie is going up this weekend... maybe with a little makeover. And, I'm going to make a Witchy~Poo silhouette too!
Attitude of Gratitude ~
~ Grateful for the many little birds that visit the sunflower patch. Their cheerful calls and beautiful colors are such a cheerful part of my day. I shall really miss those little birds this winter.
~So thankful for a cozy home. How grateful I am for our home and the shelter from the world that it is. A place of refuge, and warmth, happiness, and welcoming. Walking through the door feels like a giant hug.
