Good Morning Ladies:
You can feel the fall here in the mountains, our mornings are chilly, I get more Holiday spirit when this starts to happen than I get in December. I am going to be here at home for October this year for the first time in 22 years, We have worked the Gatlinburg craft fair for 22 years and always there for the whole month of October. I am so looking forward to the change of the leaves in our mountains. I will share them with you this year.
My contribution to pink Saturday will be short and sweet today. You have so many to visit and enjoy. Just click on the little pink lady on the left and it will take you to our Gracious host, Beverly. This beautiful plant has been in my home for 16 years. It is and Angel Wing Begonia, The leaves are shaped like angel wings and the sweet pink flowers hang in pods under the leaves. My Mom passed away 15 years ago this month and this beautiful plant was given to me as a gift when she was sick. She was a bed patient in my home for two years before passing away. I was so blessed to be able, along with my brothers and sisters to take care of her the last years of her life. Each year when this begonia blooms it brings beautiful memories of my Mom, and my first granddaughter was born just one week after my Mother passed. God takes one home and sends us another. Miranda will be 15 years old on Sept. 3rd. I move the begonia indoors for the winter and set it on my porch in the summer. Hope you enjoy your day and have a beautiful memory of your MOM.
