Flying away!

Hi friends! Would any of you happen to live in the Daytona/Orlando area? Ah yes, hair is done and luggage’s ready! So if you care to look around, you might see me sipping coffee at any of your local coffee houses around that area... ‘cause yeap, that’s where I’m headed tomorrow!
So you won’t get bored in my absence, I have arrange some pretty chairs around the garden for you to sit and wait for me. You can walk around as much as you want or even dwell in the gardens if that’s what you wish, but please make sure you’ll stay warm! It’s been cold and raining like crazy here, and as soon as the first cold front moves in the wind will shift to the north, dark clouds will lower in the sky, and the temperature will drop suddenly... then you won’t want to be out there!

I'll leave a comfy pillow just in case you wish to linger a littler longer!
Autumn brings an abundance of color, from reds to golds to oranges. so please delight yourselves in it! And don't worry about the weather! But in case you get cold, I have left some hot tea for you!

Don't you be shy... go ahead and serve yourself as much as you want! But please make sure you leave some for whoever might be strolling the gardens with you! ;)
Our garden is acting very strange lately. You can see autumn leaves and bright asters mingling with gorgeous roses (and tomatoes too! – yes, we still have oodles of tomatoes), as if they've confused the seasons... Isn’t this crazy?

The little cherub is trembling with cold, but he is protected from the frigid rain by the roses... it truly feels like a Wonderland around here; it’s like a magical place for sure! Will I have roses all winter? I don’t know!
Bunnies are digging holes and burrows to use as their winter home, but they think they can stretch their luck and stay out here for a little longer... I won’t want to discourage them, would you?
I think angels must be smiling down at the garden... ah yes, I think they have something to do with this craziness! I know, because I can see them!
If you pay close attention you would see them too... you'd see their little mouths puffing magic down at the garden. Ah yes, I'm sure of that!



  1. Have a beautiful trip, such a lovely post Celio.

  2. My Monday won't be the same without you, it's my day off and I always look forward to your beautiful garden posts. That being said, I wish you safe travels and thank you for leaving such lovelies to admire in your absence. I'll sit in the pretty green chair with the tea setting if it's ok, it's my fav, hugs from Cali, tami

  3. Have a wonderful time and I think I will get lost in your beautiful garden with all those falls colors! Here in So Calfornia we don't get fall looking like that! I can only look at pictures and admire!

  18. Good morning dear Cielo, where have I been that I have missed so many of your beautiful posts? I am getting my self together and visiting my dear blogging friends that I have neglected. My visiting is slowing down and I miss so many lovely posts, like this one for example. I am in love with your gorgeous garden and your photos are awesome. I truly would love to wander in your garden endlessly.

    I know you are enjoying Orlando and all the wonderful things to see there. I lived there for several years before we moved to the Smokey Mountains. Maybe you are back home by now.

    Wishing you many festive days ahead and I promise to be here much more often.
    Love, Jeanne
