T Stands for Tuesday & other things

Is it really Tuesday again ? 
Where do the days disappear too ?
Here's a belated Halloween treat for you this morning....
Mini likes to dress up but wasn't too thrilled with her skirt.... Shadow says no way are you putting a costume on me! 
We are still having Indian Summer weather here with WARM days and cool nights. So I'm still playing outside as much as I can.  
Planning the next summers garden is top of the list right now too. 
A friend sent me this and I just had to share... if only it were that easy :) 
I do have most of the flowerbeds all done now but still can't believe there is still so much blooming out there. If we had some rain I think there would be more even. 
This is just a small section of the front bed with blooms and of course the ever present herbal tea. I added approximately 50 spring bulbs to this bed this week so hopefully come early spring it will be full of blooms. 
This mornings Sunrise was spectacular and I thought I'd share a couple of photos of that too :) 

I am so thankful that Mini gets me up and out most mornings to enjoy the sunrise. I wish the other dog was good on a lease so he could join us but he's one of those dogs that just won't walk well on a lease. :( 
For today's Random Thought I'm sharing the October picture out of Denise from Denthe Arts calendar. Her calendar is full of absolutely stunning art every month. 
Her new calendar should be out soon and I can't wait! 
So that's it for today... be sure to check out what everyone is doing over at 
 T Srands for Tuesday


  1. Loved seeing all your lovely photos Carol! You work so hard on your beds... that wine pic was too funny..lol ! Its been crazy warm here too.. NW Arkansas... ready for the cool down predicted later this week.. Happy happy Tday! Hugs! deb

  2. Wonderful photos, your doggies are real stars! Hope the garden work is soon done. Have a happy T day, hugs, Valerie

  3. We're having unseasonably warm weather here, too. It's hard to think about prepping the plants for the cold. Happy T Tuesday!

  4. I still have many flowers blooming that should have stopped a month ago! Now I have three Bird of Paradise in bloom, and they should be blooming till February......everything is all mixed up this year and it is hard to get it winterized....LOL!

    Beautiful sun rise photos.

    Happy T-day

  5. We are due for another couple of 80 degree days here again this week. Extra quilt on and then off again.
    Funny wine planting pic!
    Mini in a skirt makes me giggle.
    Shadow set down the rules a while ago I'm thinking ;-)
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful sunrise too.
    Happy T Day dear Carol and Happy November too oxo

  6. Mini Me in her skirt made me smile :-). What a beautiful sunrise - love the colours! Wishing you happy gardening and a lovely T Day! J :-)

  7. oh those darlings pups-they melt my heart! Garden work is a year round thing isn't it?
    Gorgeous sky colors this time of year!
    Hoping to get Denise's calendar this year-I missed the sale last year.
    Happy T day!

  8. Such beautiful sunrise photos! I never see the sunrise as I don't get up early enough. (I'm a night bird and consequently I get up late).
    The wine planting made me smile. If only it was that simple.
    The random thought is beautiful. Thank you for introducing me to Denise's calendar. I will join the queue to buy one as soon as it comes out.
    Aww! Those doggies! Aren't they sweet.
    Happy gardening.
    Happy T-Day and a have good week,

  9. Lovely photo of the sunrise, I am not an early riser and our old dog never has got out of her bed till we are awake.
    I smiled at the wine planting and the photos of MiniMe in her outfit.
    Happy T day

  10. I would have been here sooner, but Sally called and asked me to go to the doctor with her in case she couldn't drive home. Then it was off to vote early and shop for Sally's medical supplies and reduced Halloween candy.

    I had to laugh at the wine photo. It was fun to see. Also Mini ME looks like she enjoys dressing up. She's adorable, but you already know that!

    I adore your lovely sunrise photos. It's been so hot here, we have set records several days in a row. I am actually looking for the rain that is promised, so things will cool a bit.

    Thanks for sharing the wine planting, your herbal tea, and the gorgeous sky shots with us for T this Tuesday. again, sorry I'm late visiting you and your "brood."

  11. I think the world would be a wonderful place if we could plant corks and get glasses of wine. :) Love the photo of the pups and that beautiful sunrise. Sunrise has gotten so late right now I am already at work when it happens, and I really miss a morning walk. Lucky you. And happy T day too. Hugs-Erika

  12. Enjoyed the photos! Hope the wine experiment works... :) We NEED rain!!!!!!!!! Thought we would get it today or tonight but not looking good!

  13. So pleased that Mini got you out early enough to get those sunrise shots! Love the wine growing idea!! Your garden sounds like it will be spectacular in the Spring! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx

  14. Love your puppies. Darling babies! And your sunrise is magical!Your garden is getting so beautiful my friend!! Belated Happy T day!
