Autumn on My Patio

Please join me for a cup of coffee (or I can heat water for tea) and some pie:

and enjoy a pleasant moment on the patio. We're having sunny weather with highs in the 60sF. You can see how tall and sprawling that wild sunflower is over there on the right:

It takes up entirely too much space here, and there's not really enough sun for it, but I love it and haven't found anything I'd like to go there instead. Maybe an Eastern Redcedar?

I'm joining the T Stands for Tuesday blogger gathering hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth. Please join us.


  1. I'd love to join you for a cuppa and a slice of pie on your patio - perfect 😁. I enjoyed the tour around your beautiful patio too, the pumpkins add a lovely pop of colour and I love your tall sunflowers 😁. Wishing you a very Happy T Tuesday! J 😊

  2. Oh i love your patio space, and thank you for the pie a cup of tea
    Happy T Day Kathy

  3. wow, it really is huge... and i´d like to have a Cup of hot tea, as it is getting cold now:)
    happy t-day!

  4. Thankyou for the coffee and the pie :)

  5. your patio is such a charming spot to relax in with a favorite cuppa, a treat and a good book. Would love to join you. Happy T day!

  6. Thank you for showing us you lovely patio. Ideal to sit out on a nice day with a book and a drink. I love the pumpkin still life there and the bird feeders too. Wow, that sunflower is huge! You could substitute it with a climber as it is near the fence. How about a nice clematis?
    Happy T-Day,

    1. Thx for the suggestion. I'll look into clematis :)

  7. I adore your patio. I wish I had something that nice where I could hide away. I LOVE the splashes of turquoise in the feeders, and the entire ambiance is so wonderful.

    I also loved the vignette you created behind your pie and coffee. Yes, I'll have coffee, please and I'll join you ANY day you choose. Thanks for sharing your patio and your pie and coffee with us for T this Tuesday.

  8. Your patio is sooo beautiful! GREAT!!!!

  11. Thanks for the virtual pie and coffee on your patio! I love the bright, happy pops of color in this post--the Fiestaware and the cluster of pumpkins. Happy T Day. :)

  12. What a nice and pretty private space, D. When you wrote "tall and sprawling" I imagined the sunflowers that you get edible seeds from. Yours are prettier. Your pumpkin still life could be in a painting.

    Thank you for your kind comment about my handmade cards.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  13. I love how the blue of the plate looks with the red berries!
    Oh, I could almost taste the coffee:)
    what a lovely patio..highs in the 60's?? sounds heavenly!
    thank you for sharing this.

  14. I will definitely have a piece of pie if you are sharing. And I am jealous it is so warm. It was only 17 when I left for work this morning. Brrrrr. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  15. Was so cool to see your fall patio. I can picture the birds coming by to visit. I don't know enough about plants to make a suggestion. :)

  16. I think I have a matching yellow cup. Shall I bring it when I come to visit. Your patio looks like a great place to sit and chat with a friend or two.
