Beautiful Maples

Autumn is almost over...daylight savings time ends this weekend...I'm sad. But these trees are SO beautiful!

Look what I found!

Dylan was thrilled to discover a carrot when he pulled on all that green stuff!

The monarch population seems sparse this year, but I caught a photo of this one on the swamp milkweed. So incredibly beautiful...

It's hard to beat the simple cheerfulness of zinnias. These are in our alley garden.

David's Sweater

We are looking forward to meeting our new nephew, David, today. I made him a sweater:The pattern is Lilli's Little Sweater from Cottage Creations. Very easy!

First tomato

The first tomato (heirloom, grown from seed by me) is nearly ready! We take our tomatoes very seriously in this house; we check on this one several times a day to see if it's ready yet. When it is, we will celebrate with BLT's made with Breadsmith honey wheat bread, apple-smoked bacon, and lettuce from our garden. Only a few days left...
