The weather has been beautiful the past few days. Temps have been cooler, little humidity, a breeze in the air-fall is here. I have been taking care of a dog who gets me up early in the morning so I’ve caught some lovely sunrises. This morning’s is captured in the second photo. I have been scanning the skies for incoming flocks of Canada geese. They are getting louder but I think most have been resident geese and not migrating ones. I love to hear their calls. Some nights they wake me up either flying over or hanging out on the pond in front of the home. The osprey have headed south for the year. The first photo was the sky as I headed to work tonight.
I love coleus plants though at times struggle to see the colors as nature intended. I used to grow them quite a bit growing up but have not had one in years. Lately I have grown cactus, aloe, geranium and kalenchoe. I am hoping to head to the local greenhouse in the spring and get a head start on herbs and maybe some new houseplants. I recently brought all my houseplants in for the year. They are outside from May to October.
The bottom photo I took while walking a dog today. As always I love my town and walking through it. It makes me happy. I have lots of books to read as we head into colder weather and winter. I’m looking forward to winter for the first time in years. I’m especially looking forward to spending time with NYC.
I’m looking forward to heading to a horse show this Sunday. Going out to dinner my best friend tonight or tomorrow. I hope you have a great weekend. Are you looking forward to fall or winter and any good books?
