Bubble Time Freshness

September - the month of daughter Amy's, granddaughter Bailey's birthday, sissy Gail's birthday, and the signal to the end of summer and the Farmers Market!

The last of the zinnias!

My lunch time favorites!
My weekly purchase of garden fresh
office bouquets comes to a close.
My annual pumpkins-on-a-stick purchase!
Could not resist this moss green pumpkin with the tendrils!
The vendor said it is sweeter than an orange pumpkin
Not that I will find out... don't plan on cooking up my centerpiece!
A few of these and a piece of twine rope made
last weekend at a local art fair and...
Ta Da! Fall centerpiece complete!

Now on to the card. So happy I decided Bubble Time is a priority! No more bringing work home on the weekends!

Here's to enjoying every trip to the Farmers Market, never regretting buying myself garden fresh flowers, and wondering what I will have for lunches when fresh pepper season is over!
