Welcome, Friends!

A garden is a friend you can visit anytime, declares a large stone in a well tended  garden.  And that’s my hope for this blog, that Autumn’s Garden will be like a friend you can visit anytime in these uncertain times that are today.

“O Lord that lends me life, Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.” William Shakespeare

Who am I? I am a wife, mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, aunt, sister and cousin, and friend. And I am a recovering English major. I enjoy writing, painting, and reading – which when combined with all the wonderful people God has permitted in my life, I have much for which I am thankful. And I am grateful for the freedom to express my thanks.
