We are soaking up
each glorious moment of these hazy Autumn days!!!
The garden is packed with fall flowers; late roses, yellow daisies,
a wonderful array of chrysanthemums, purple asters -
and here is the last Abraham Darby of the summer!
looking as fresh and lovely as the first bud to open in May.
Charles 'blew the lines' today,
in preparation for the irrigation water being turned off tomorrow.
As he coiled up all the hoses I had a faint feeling of regret
and it was brought home to me that these wonderful warm
Autumn days are a plus, - a dividend, and a wonderful blessing.
I picked a few boxes of Golden Delicious Apples
and on the first day that doesn't draw us outside
we will core and slice them into foil lined pie plates,
pop them into the freezer and anticipate a winter's worth of
delicious apple pies.
Tomorrow's forecast is for blue skies and sunshine, - and
the next day too, of course.
It will be Katie and Will's Wedding Day!
Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words. Plautus
