Falling into good weather



With all the changes in weather patterns, I must say we have been perfectly delighted with the gorgeous Falls we've had these last couple of years. Just marvelous! These daisies that I brought from my parent's place always mark fall for me. They seem to come into bloom just as everything else is succumbing to the first frosts. They actually make a nice hedge, about 4-5 feet tall. They are perennials but the stems are very tough and are very hard to cut back. So I have only a couple of clumps in a few strategic places.

Our trees don't colour up too exceptionally. We get a few shrubs that are kinda red but the majority are the yellows. This year the trees seem to be keeping their leaves longer.




I figured a quick clean-up from the weekend and then some playtime before I gathered up my paint supplies. I got busy editing our bedroom of all the blue greens that were confusing my attempts at a golden rose colour scheme. I was interrupted by a call from my friend to come help edit her 'man cave'. We got a goodly bit accomplished and she will be helping me later this week to get my veranda painting all finished up. We did have a lovely coffee break out on her deck which looks out onto the river that meanders about our municipality. I should have taken my camera! I really must learn to carry it to capture momentous moments!

How nice to spend time helping your friend and then she will help you. Sometimes it is fun to do it together and get more done. Sometimes just to laugh and spend time together. Your daisies are wonderful. Happy flowers to send you off into winter. Fall colors are beginning here but will really take off in October. Maybe I should take pics with my camera for a post...

This is a delightful picture! I could just lay right next to those daisies and gaze up into that blue sky! You're right about the camera! It has to be 'at the ready' every moment, which means, in other words, on your person all the time! XXXOO
