Last fall the squirrel's hid some of the sunflower seeds from our bird feeders in the raised bed where we grow our tomatoes. When they first came up I was some what surprised. We always get some volunteer tomato plants coming up in that bed in the spring but this was the first time that sunflowers sprouted there.

Sunflowers and Black eyed Susan's always remind me that fall is around the corner. Thoughts of pumpkins and Mums start popping into my mind. I really love fall.
I can't help but smile when I walk out onto the patio. I love the vivid colors of late summer.

The patio will soon take on it's fall personality. I am looking forward to the mum's and the pumpkins residing on the plant stands. The scarecrows will soon be standing guard watching over the corn stalks. Such fun.

I put my sunflower tablecloth on the breakfast table today and set the table with bright late summer colors.

Our table is set for our first Sunday morning brunch to share on this blog . This is just like playing house, with our own table for two.
