The sunshine is highlighting my neighbor's maple tree, turning it golden. SO pretty!
Isn't this a stunning zinnia? Light pink and dark pink. The geraniums are putting on a glorious last act, too.
Sorry for the blur, but this red fox came by this morning. Look at her tail! She's lovely!
The neighbors are really Halloween crazy around here. I must dig out my leaf tablecloth and orange lanterns. Birdie, Bug, and Millie Rose asked me when I am going to decorate for Halloween. They stayed overnight last night and will be back for dinner Tuesday, so I had better get cracking with the orange stuff.
Still we have crops to harvest! The zucchinis are pretty darn perfect. I was surprised to find so many beans, too. Next year I am planning the garden a bit more carefully. The pumpkin vines were invasive and the beans were disorganized.
The family room is littered with popcorn droppings and blankets, toys and cups. We have the Ft. Collins girls coming Friday for more ongoing slumber party fun. I might clean before then because it's fun to prepare a place for those we love.
How is your autumn story coming along? Are you stirring soup in a copper pot? Are you baking scones for tea? Are you sweeping up dead leaves on your front porch? Are you sewing your gypsy skirt? Smile.
Sending heaps of love your way, good human.
