Beautiful Sedum Hues On Outdoor Wednesday

More goodies go
into the Giveaway Basket

Any guesses ?

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday, hosted by Susan ; A Southern Day Dreamer. Be sure to click here for a full list of those participating. Be prepared for views of beautiful outdoor spaces. Remember a few weeks ago when I showed you the Autumn Sedum in the backyard? The most luscious shade of pink was evident. Along with a few surprises. (excuse my shadow).
Yes, a few bees were busy gathering pollen.
Okay, "a lot" of bees. :-)
I remember hurrying to take this shot, unaware that the blooms were so full of bees. lol

The blooms are so delicate looking. Not quite so delicate that had this bee having any problems hanging on. lol

We go from this lighter shade of pink a couple of weeks ago........

To this rich lush deep color of pink today. Minus the bees. :-))

From this a couple of weeks ago..

To this today. Isn't it wonderful the changes Mother Nature makes?
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to treat yourself by swinging over by Susan's A Southern Day Dreamer for a full list of participants. I'll see you there.

Rainy Days Means an Inside Project

Second items go into
the basket for the give away

These are the second items that went into the basket for the give away. Can any of you figure what they are? Aren't they happy? I think any of you would enjoy using them. ;-))
With the rains coming down and a bit on the gloomy side inside, what better way to add a bit of brightness than to hang a beautiful Fall wreath. I shopped the house and all the old boxes and put together a new fall wreath. The other one was looking a bit on the shabby side. Bad blogger (slapping hands) I didn't take before pictures. You have to trust me on this one, it was looking "very" shabby. This one is so much better. :-)) Nice and full , perfect for the back door to welcome all of you inside.
The sunflowers I've had for years, another perfect touch to go with all my fall decor. A bit of yellow gold tipped with red. Just my colors. :-))
A new wreath calls for a new bow. I purchased the ribbon a few weeks ago at Hobby Lobby while it was half price. A gorgeous shade of brown and a touch of gold.
And lots of pretty loops. :-))Here's a shot with the back door closed.
And a shot with the door open once again, A view into the laundry room and a wee bit of decor seen through the wreath. :-))
I'm so glad you stopped by today. I've sure enjoyed having you. I'm anxious to see if any of you guessed the next goodie that went into the basket.
