Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Taking a Little Break From Fall

The roses and delphiniums in Mimi's garden are loving this cool fall weather. So I brought a few in and made a lovely Spring bouquet. In October. Whatever.


I am so grateful for our garden and the wonderful flowers and produce we enjoy throughout the year.

The last rose of summer never lasts long enough does it? I have a couple buds in my garden that I am watching, maybe I'll cut them and bring them in so they can bloom. Everything else...pretty much finished.

They look pretty--I miss last year's October when it was so warm.

By the way, I like getting advice from you--especially on house stuff because yours looks so cute. :)

Your flowers are beautiful. How do you get the rose bushes to survive the winter?
The first year we moved here I planted rose bushes and they all died in the winter snow. I sure miss having flowers in the yard.
