labor day strolling

 a lovely Labor Day........

Hello September!!

a nice day for a walk.......so we went too! Besides--I wanted to take pictures of flowers in my summer pocketbook for my blog.

last day of the year to wear white pants, y'all! LOL....I break the rules on the white pants....I like white pants with warm winter sweaters quite a bit. I WON'T wear a white dress or white skirt or dressy white shoes after Labor Day though.....yep---all those  completely out of date hopelessly old fashioned "rules" that I was taught all my life from my completely Southern Mother and Ma-Maw and aunts.... ha ha LOL

hot pink friendly blooms reaching right out from the fence

Our banana trees grew huge this year too (almost 15 feet tall) and we harvested about 30 of them the other day! They are called "gold finger" ones and are very tiny. You pick a big bunch, let them ripen/turn yellow, then eat them. 

today's "arm candy" LOL--a big plastic chain bracelet, fun!

These folks are FUN!!---they have a disco ball glittering in their yard! they also have a little fountain that has a tiny waterfall that gurgles and splashes down into a little pond. It's so relaxing. We have a fountain, but no waterfall. Maybe someday.


pretty skies.......and pretty flowers

love these big old gateposts!

forgotten old flower pots

all that beautiful ornate old craftmanship.......a lost art....

a pretty front porch and yard!

I spotted a hawk up there, but I couldn't get a good picture

I got a new strap for my camera!! I just love it, and my old one was so old and bedraggled from all the years of hard use.

Happy weekend, y'all!! Hope it's a great one for you!


  1. Red flowers....ooooohhhhh...I love it! It's very pretty! Great minds think alike! heehee! Love seeing your photos for Sept. The month is zipping right along. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Wonderful pictures of a beautiful city. You live in such a lovely place! Love all the flowers and gorgeous woodwork/trim on buildings, fences, windows, gardens...and you! You are so lovely in your summer outfit, the last day of summer, well, not technically, but I know what you mean. Labor day is the last day to wear white shoes, pocketbooks, pants, etc. No problem for me...I don't wear white at all if I can help it. Not my best color. And especially not now that I have gained so much weight! LOL. I love your camera strap! That is SO pretty. I rarely carry my regular camera anymore because it hurts my neck, even with a padded strap. It's too heavy for me to carry on my neck, so I just make do with my cell phone camera most of the time. I miss that, however. Getting old ain't for sissies. Love your post today. Please take care and have a blessed weekend.

  3. I have been missing you, glad to get a post and know you are doing okay and all the pretty pictures.

  4. Hi Debbi! Oh, I just love going on walks with you! I'm so impressed with your banana tree! I friend gave us one a couple of years ago and it has really grown this year and it's about 8feet tall. Maybe if it survives we'll have nanas like you! Love seeing the neighborhood and you look cute as usual and love the strap on your camera. I guess I need one too. I'm so glad you popped in to see me. Yes, I love my old blog and my blog list! I've been trolling all over blogland trying to find my old friends. So many have stopped blogging. Glad we've connected again.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
