Autumn has Arrived!

I know it's Autumn when my anemones start blooming...


Their dainty petals catching the last warm sunbeams...

My dahlias too are blossoming like crazy this year, probably because I divided the tubers before planting them. These are of a fantastic shade of pink, I will bring them along with me to the new home. Hope I'll have a tiny place where to plant them.




Did you notice I changed my blog and website 'look'? I needed it to be fresher and plain... hope you like it as I do!
Have a fabulous autumny weekend, will be back next week with the tutorial I promised, with glimpses of boxes piling up, and new things I'm up to. And I also have to prepare the luggage for our English trip. My oh my, time flies sooo quickly!

  2. Lovely look to your blog, Monica! Ironic that I have just pulled up your blog as we have Italian music play in the background at home! ;) Your dahlias are beautiful. My mother took many plantings and bulbs from our old family homestead when my parents moved away (the plants in my old yard went all the way back to 1902 when my gr-grandmother planted things there)! It's VERY comforting seeing the old family plants at my parents new home. ;)

  11. Love these kind of pink shades all together! I am sure your Dahlias will be wonderful anywhere! I guess it is right to wish you a happy Pink Saturday, as long as it will last (still about 10 minutes!) and a very happy Sunday too!
