Sort of fall …


although the temperatures haven’t quite caught up with the calendar. I caught a glimpse of purple from the car this afternoon and went to check, expecting asters (it’s fall, there should be purple asters, right?), but instead found an unusually large clump of ironweed, with a swallowtail bonus. I love the way the sunlight casts shadows of the flowers on its wings in the 3rd photo!

And while I was playing with the light, I happened to see some milkweed fluff and red berries too.

On the construction front, the broiler will finally light properly (as in, without a loud POOF that blows the oven doors open) – yay! Haven’t tried it out yet (just the oven, which was OK) but it’s nice to know it will work now.

  1. Oh, yes. Nobody needs a surprise like that when lighting the broiler;-P And, yes, it is fall now. I could tell this morning by the light. And, the crisp feel in the air is wonderful isn’t it? Happy weekend!!!

  2. Heh. And here I thought those were a type of aster.
