It was a glorious afternoon and if it wasn't for leaves drifting down and the sweet smell of fall, I would have thought it was summer. Cats were lounging around soaking it all up and me too at times. I felt lazy and just sat, turning my face to the sun wishing it could continue like this until at least January.
But, reality sets in and today I've been storing more pots, containers, chairs. etc. I'm glad the old falling apart shed up behind the house hasn't been torn down as I had planned because, even though it's in rough shape, I've had to put some stuff back up there.
I have a seven and a half foot pre lit xmas tree on the way. Our old one was falling apart and smaller. I think every now and then that I must be mad to be thinking of all the decorating. I usually enjoy doing as I'm by myself and celebrating the seasons is just not the same. However, after saying that, I've decorated the mantle for autumn.
I love the colours this time of year. They're so warm.
Taking a break.
I noticed yesterday that these plants were putting out blooms again.
The Phlox are still hanging in there and giving off such wonderful perfume.
