Fall Is Upon Us.........

The sun glow spotlights the turning leaves of the neighbor's maple tree. Mostly the maples are changing and it is a subtle color change in limited sections of the trees.

The sunflower is so much in decline that it really doesn't have much beauty left to see.

The last of the blooms are really beat up from the change in the weather.  I think that there are only a few of these left to see.

This smaller sedum is showing some pretty flowers and the colors are good.  The other  sedums are finished now with dried up flowers. They all bloomed earlier and this one seemed to be blooming late.

I grab whatever is available at the time when I go out to pick tomatoes.  I can't keep Barney outside in his yard for long unless I stay with him.  I grabbed a watering container that I dip in the rain barrel for quick batches of water for the potted plants. It worked well as I picked tomatoes, he stayed outside and watched me pick.  I left some behind as the old pitcher really wasn't big enough but I can return again.

It is Thursday and things just keep moving too fast. I have a long day each day with all the extras that they stuff into the schedule.  I have early morning meetings on Tuesday and Thursdays so the day starts early and goes continually with little breaks. I do have a smaller class the last period of the day.  I can see daylight by then.

I see that we have a future of having some very warm days coming up after one more rainstorm.  Hurricanes usually mess with our weather but it is too early to see anything happening because of it.

I hope all is well with all my blog friends.  I thank your for stopping by today.

Sad to see the last of the flowers but your tomatoes looks very tasty. We are beginning to see fall color here and mornings are in the 50's. Theo had to wear his coat to walk this a.m.!

Great tomato harvest. The other day, I ended up just using my tshirt in front of me as a basket.
