The roses are just about finished blooming in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
This summer has been a splendid year for the roses here in our garden.
They have loved the heat and the sunshine and we have managed to keep them hydrated and happy.

My favourite David Austin Rose
has a few blooms clinging to the bush.
a fragrance Hybrid Tea Rose
a few sprays of flowers left but are slowly fading into Fall.
The Hydrangeas are a mix of fresh blooms and dead heads.
I picked a few to bring inside and hope that they will dry slowly so I can keep a bunch in a vase for a few months.
I think I may have already shared this photo with you.
I know I posted it on my Instagram page.
The blue and mauve hydrangeas are cut from the same plant.
Unfortunately these blooms wilted quite quickly after bringing them in the house.
I love this vintage blue and white jug.
It is made by Woods and Sons.
Peppers Market in Cadboro Bay Village
is hosting a contest.
$100 gift voucher for guessing the weight of this huge pumpkin.
I have no idea... so I have not entered yet.
These hairy "things" are on hanging on a clematis near our bungalow.
I think they look like Thing One and Thing Two...
perhaps from a Dr. Seuss book.
Speaking of books, I am reading a great little one right now.
Halfway through it and am keen to read more.
I have a busy day here in The Humble Bungalow as we have all the family coming for the Thanksgiving feast and I need to focus on the menu.
Earlier this week I took my favourite recent thrift shop find,
a pristine vintage Canadian made leather bag
out to tea.
I am loving this new bag!
I will try to take a few pictures of our table and dinner if I get a chance later today...
