September 25th., 2007

Autumn is well on its way it seems. Rather chilly here and have had the fire in all day. I do enjoy autumn days but then I know it leads to winter and I don't enjoy that at all. I was looking at some pictures I took last winter and to tell the truth, it puts me off my oats to see them. Ah well, can't stop it!!

I've been reading a book by one of my favorite authors, Martha Grimes, and to tell the truth I can't make sense of parts of it. I'm beginning to wonder if my brain is going dim with age. Who ever says it's wonderful, this getting old bit, must be mad.

Absolutely nothing happening here lately. I decided to take the day off and not do gardening, instead took a few pictures of "signs of Autumn."

Leaves changing on some of the trees.

One of the archways, vine with berries.

Sedum, one of the last plants to bloom.

Burning Bush, already starting to turn red.

And of course a sure sign of fall....preserves my mom made and brought out to me the last time they were here.

So THAT'S what those funny pinky green flowers are!

I have some too. :)

I got sedum in my garden too, it just kind of appeared, I didn't plant it. Didn't know what it was called till now - thanks!

The jars of preserves look interesting.

The preserves look so yummy. I had forgotten how beautiful they are and lovely fall photos. Good posting. Have you seen the bear?? I loved the bear in your yard.

Oceans, haven't seen the bear since. We usually have them come around in October. While in a way I don't want them to come as it can be a bit stressful when wandering around outside but on the other hand would like to get more pictures, lol.
