Fall In The Backyard

Hi All,
What beautiful weather we have had. Change is coming tonight, tho! Brrrrrr.... I went out and snapped some pics of my back yard. The roses have come to life, but not for long. Also, my Aunt and Cousin came to visit. I have included a pic or two from out time together. :)

 The roses are grand

Trip to our local winery. Aren't they lovely?  Can you believe my Aunt Gerry is 82?!
I love my family :)

Really enjoyed your post and seeing your family as well as your foliage. Yes, I can believe your loved one is 82. Age is just a number, as I am 83 and still going strong.

Robin, everythng looks beautiful, but I have to say Oh My GOODNESS. Your grandpa's corn sheller. I am chuckling as I write this. We have one and we use it every fall, to get the corn off of the husk for the chickens. I love that little gizmo. I have NEVER seen another one and tonight I land on your blog and voila ~ YOU have one. amazing ;-) I think the man who invented this little gizmo was a genius. My daughter was running it, I was and my husband and we just laugh and have fun ~ imagine something from 1899 entertainment at its finest ;-)
