A Touch of Fall

It’s finally cooler and starting to look like fall. While I’m not in any rush for cold weather, not-so-hot is very welcome, as was the rain the other day. Definitely time to trade the forsythia wreath for something a little more seasonal above the door and on the table!

There are pretties outside too. The mum is so big it’s got to be watered practically every day, but it’s so gorgeous I don’t mind. I wouldn’t have thought of combining violas and kale, but it works, and I love pansies of any size!

I really didn’t get the garden going early enough this year (maybe I’ll do better next year) but this pepper did pretty well in the planter. There are a few more plus some tomatoes in the garden—I’ve got my fingers firmly crossed for a late frost so that maybe we’ll get a few more.

I was working away at the computer the other day, then turned to see this 😉
