Do you have doodads sitting around on surfaces that have sort of surpassed their shelf life? Me, too. These little angels have been moved to the garden. Do you like their halos?
The sunny girls are so tall this year! Sky high!
I hope we have a warm September so I can harvest a tomato or ten!
Out on my walk I came upon more crab apples. I think that particular shade of rosy red is my favorite color.
Some of the leaves are changing!
Roses around the neighborhood are blooming again. They are glorious.
I took this picture while looking at a neighbor's trash heap. It reminds me that I have fresh-picked plums in the refrigerator and it's time to stew them.
We can't forget the "greens" of summer! Isn't this ornamental grass lovely?
I find this pot of geraniums by a neighbor's green door VERY pleasing.
More apples of the crab kind!
I was listening to an M.F.K. Fisher book while I walked (thanks to MK for the suggestion) and all the references to eating in Europe, wines, trout, sauces, fresh peas, and eating chocolate at boarding school made me crave tea and chocolate (and a billion other fine foods).
I used this tea (a gift from Brad) and some Earl Grey lavender tea that I found at a discount store (Not expired! Yay!)
I used a delicate tea cup and tea pot that Kelli gave me when I finished up teaching sixth grade. YUM!
I found some chocolate, too.
I hope your weekend is going well. I am much better (finally got some antibiotics - sometimes absolutely necessary) and I have lots of pep.
The thing is, I also have LOTS of books to read. I'll tell you all about them next time.
In the meantime, put your face toward the sun. She's so warm and kind this time of year!
Bill just returned from Australia where it is windy and cool. He had a wonderful time, but he's happy to be back to mow the lawn and walk with Jeff and James in the mild September morning.
Speaking of little James, he's coming over at dinner time so his parents can have a little "date". Yay! I love his face!
Bye bye, sweet visitor!
