First Sasanqua of Fall/ Last Rose of Summer

This morning on my way out I noticed that the Sasanqua Camellia by the side door had two flowers opened.  It will be  covered  with light pink flowers soon.  The blossoms only last a few days but the plant usually has flowers up until Thanksgiving. It is a large shrub probably 6 ft. tall and 5 ft. across.

 Just across the sidewalk the Abraham Lincoln rose still has three flowers.  The foliage is sparse but I can't bear to cut them back just yet.

 It looks like fall is making headway into our area.  I saw one small tree that was partly red-orange on my way home from town.

This afternoon I quilted and bound one of the pumpkin table runners.  I quilted the other one last night after I got bored with TV.  They are 18 x 36".  

I really admire all the great photographers out there. My pics all look pretty crooked but the quilts are actually pretty square.
