Timeless Tuesday...Autumn




This week at Timeless Tuesday we are to look for Autumn. So when I think about this time of the year....fall or autumn, I think about the mums that appear at the nurseries and how the colors go from the summer bright yellows etc. to a more subdued choice which includes more orange, rust, and deeper colors of rosy wines etc. I used the old mum set and just did a bit of coloring on a cut out bunch of mums with some smaller flowers and some Queen Anne's lace. Simple card .
Hope you are all well and enjoying the last roses of summer because let's face it before we know it the weather will cool and the white stuff will once again fly...so enjoy while you can. Found a hummingbird moth in my flower box this a.m. while watering and was so disappointed as last night while it was flitting there I thought for sure it was a real sweet humming bird. Still waiting to spot one this year but so far no luck. See you next time.

Your card might be simple, Pat, but it's beautiful, just the same! Love the warm, autumn colors. I'm so glad you wrote about your hummingbird moth, as I've never heard of them. I looked it up, and couldn't believe how pretty they are, although real hummingbirds are much prettier. :) I'm glad you joined us this week for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

You know me and flowers...love them! Mums are some of my favorites and yours are wonderful. My humming birds were very late this year. Our seasons here in Tennessee were "off" this year. This morning we are in the 50's...very odd for August. Hope you are doing well!
