My Buddy, Theresa and I escaped for a girls long weekend
to Birmingham.  Cooler weather, pumpkins and lots of great 
shopping and dining made for a terrific trip.

It began first with a visit
to Birmingham's Botanical Garden.
They have the best gift/garden shop.
Leaf and Petal
In fact B'ham is lucky to have three 
Leaf and Petal Shops.

Tons and Tons of colorful pumpkins and plants designed is such 
a welcoming way.  Look at the cute idea for
hanging gourds.

Cabbages, Cabbages and More Cabbages.

They always make a great addition to every garden.

Just look at these huge metal flowers
each is a piece of art for the garden.

Step inside to the shop and you will find lots
and lots of goodies, wonderful eye candy.
This fall display greets you with twigs, grasses and
pumpkins, a super look. 
Just Perfect!

Just a peek of Fall in the South.
Have you visited your nearest Botanical Garden lately?
The best bargain in town.
It has been 2 months since my last post.  I could tell you how
busy I have been but who cares?  
Hopefully I can enjoy the rest of October filled
with Halloween and things that go bump in the night.

I head out for Bogota, Colombia next week so I am on a mission
to wrap up my Halloween decoration.
I can't wait to share something spooky. I'm trying something new, going 
black and white with Halloween.
Happy Halloween, Kathy
