All week I have pondered what to write about the torment  of breast cancer.  I do not have it in my family, I have been blessed, although I know it can come out of the blue.  Two people, a close friend and an acquaintance, have gone through the misery of the treatments to beat it....both, I am happy to say, are.
My one wish is simple, I pray that a cure is found and quickly.  That there will be no more grief, pain and suffering.  My heartfelt prayers go to those brave women that are in the battle to survive and those that did not.  May God Bless them and their brave families, which are also in this battle with them!

Please go to  BEVERLY of How Sweet The Sound, and visit all the other blogs involved in the Pink Saturday post on Breast Cancer.  And, lets each say a prayer for a cure.

Many Blessings to each of you,
Jil ♥

Happy Fall Y'All! ♥
Here are pictures for our Pink Saturday tour of fall flowers, pumpkins and foliage.
**Click on all the pictures to make them larger**
We call this "Thelma's Tree" after the sweet lady that lived there.  She passed a few years ago and a new family lives in her little Saltbox Cottage, but to us it is still Thelma's!  I love how there are little bursts of color among the green...
And at our Farmers Market some of the pumpkins and corn stalks in their nursery...

This lovely pot of yellow Mums was a gift from a dear neighbor! She is so thoughtful and sweet!  Thank You, Pat! xo

Foxglove that I had cut back, but we have two new blooms in our mild Fall weather!

White Geraniums still happily blooming!

Our bright pink Clematis is still blooming away against an old door attached to an older table by the garage garden...

And for my last picture, one sweet little pink blooming among the peonies that I must get out and cut back.  The rocks are from our Arizona/Texas trip....I had the car so full of beautiful rocks of all sizes that hubby had to finally tell me enough as we don't drive a pickup and there are tires to consider.  lol!  How I love my Arizona rocks!
Well, these are my pictures of what is going on in our part of Michigan!  So far it has been a lovely fall!
Hop on over to BEVERLY  to visit with all the ladies loving pink and fall to enjoy all of their pictures!
Hugs to all....

It has been so hard to give up Summer!  I think Mother Nature knows this and so she gives us some fun called Halloween.  You can find this vintage Jack-o-Lantern at  CottonCreekCottage  on Etsy
And along with the fun she gives us glorious colors as the trees get ready for their winter slumber.
And inside, I have done a little bit of decorating for us to enjoy.
The darling little votive lamp is a from my daughter a few years back ~
Chenille pumpkins from my good friends shop in California several years ago ~
And this cutie is made from a coconut that was carefully hollowed out.  Miss A. one of our granddaughters gave this to a few years back when they were visiting a pumpkin patch and the owner gave it to is one of my favorites because it is so unusual.

This is my bit of pumpkin sharing and now I am going to go to visit BEVERLY   to enjoy all the blogs celebrating pink and Fall!  Hope to see you there!
