There is a definite Fall nip in the air this morning and it feels wonderful. How was your weekend? Fletch and I were on cat feeding duty for Marcel & Talbot. So I headed over to Colin & Mailing's house Saturday morning to feed the critters and then met up with Dee for some coffee and conversation. Luckily the forecast storm from Laura was not as bad as predicted and we were able to sit outside for our coffee. It was so good to get together again.
Sunday was a gorgeous day. I did laundry and hung it outside to dry and then after lunch I walked 4+ miles on the River Trail in Valley Forge Park. It was crowded! Lots of walkers and bikers and a few dogs. I wasn't even sure when I pulled into the parking lot if there would be a spot for my car, but I found one. It was such a nice day to be out and about.
I also managed to do a bit more knitting and the Hawk Socks are finished!!
I think Colin will love them. Now the decision is to give them to him now? Or wait and give them as a birthday present? Or Christmas present? I'm betting that now wins.
Fletch planted some sunflowers this year. The first ones didn't germinate. But we finally have one blooming and two more just opening. Pretty, but facing our neighbor's yard instead of ours!
The Hibiscus Fletch bought a couple of months ago has continued to bloom. It is never covered with blooms the way it was when he bought it, but one at a time it rewards us with a gorgeous flower:
The blossoms are HUGE!
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, there is a definite chill to the air this morning. Last night was gorgeous and we decided to sit out with a fire.
As you can see, Fletch lit it before dark - love the blue of the sky. See our tiny apples hanging on the bare branches above Fletch's head? Our apples have not grown this year. At all. And now the apple tree has just about lost all its leaves! I hope the tree survives, but I'm not sure it will. It is damaged with something.
Well, that wraps up things for me. Time to get to work! Wishing you a wonderful week.
