Garden walk, fabric chosen

The Honeysuckle bush has berries.










Every day there are fewer blooms on the Rose of Sharon bushes.  It is getting colder every night but we haven't gotten down to freezing yet.






I have 2 colors of Asters again this year.











There are volunteer plants all over the place.  I plan on pulling a bunch of them out as soon as they start to fade.







I chose some fabrics for the kid pillowcases for the shelter but I didn't get it washed or cut.  We meet Monday afternoon so I'll need to get it done today.

Love those berries. Love those happy pillowcase fabrics too! There are some kids out there who are really going to appreciate this.

I love the Rose of Sharon plant. I keep intending to plant that one and never do - does that one need sun all day or does it tolerate shade for a good part of it?
I woke up to 62 degrees this morning and a north wind - it feels down right chilly after the 90's that we have been getting. But I think I can get used to it rather quickly - it feels nice :)

Love your flowers and berries. My garden is coming to an end too. I love the fabrics you chose for the pillowcases.

Catching up with your last 3 posts today... Kaffe Fassett embroidery designs like none of the others out there. Did you order and is that your kit ?

Love your selections for pillow cases, your church group will be making for the shelter. Such a wonderful donation for those in need.

Always enjoy the beauty of your garden blossoms. And the fabrics for the children's pillow cases are perfect. Such fun fabrics to work with.

Hmmm, I didn't know there WAS a honeysuckle bush. We have vines down here and they tend to take over whatever area they are planted. Very fragrant little yellow to orange flowers, but no berries.

I'm not much of a gardener, so the photo of your Rose of Sharon intrigued me. It looked a lot like the hibiscus plant we gave to relatives some time ago
After a Google moment, I now know the Rose of Sharon is a hibiscus. Thanks for the push to expand my mind.
Lovely plant photos.
Those fabrics will make cute pillowcases.
