It happened last night
It happened last night - that night we dread every year - an official change in the seasons. Frost! It's over - sunflowers, zinnias, cosmos, basil, tomatoes. Until next year.... We will miss you. I picked what I could from the garden and we'll enjoy them on tables until they wilt.
The sunflower picking season has been over for a couple weeks. Try as I may, I couldn't fill up the buckets. Although they aren't blooming, the birds sure are having a party. I find even as they are shriveling away, they have their own kind of beauty.
But.... Pumpkin season is in full swing.
We built our yearly scarecrows to decorate our roadside stand. This year, there is The Farmer and His Daughter.
My computer is fixed - yes, it was a bad modem. Thank goodness for extended Apple Care - definitely a good investment. I have had Macs since the days of the good old Apple IIC (remember them?) and this is the first one I've had that had any trouble. But I am really happy it is back. I should be posting a bit more regularly now.....
