SIGNS OF AUTUMN

There are many signs of autumn here in Whatcom county. I've been seeing them for seventy years and somehow it seems like my body shifts into a lower gear when I see the the sun parched gold and brown leaves fluttering through the sky.
Another sign is the piles of zucchini with free signs attached. In this case a tub of cuke's, both green and lemon on the front porch of my daughter Kathy. I walked in her garden too and oh boy does she ever have a wonderful harvest.
Here is a shot of a gorgeous chrysanthemum in her front yard. Doesn't it just sing "Autumn"?

We can't forget the fall asters. They look so sweet all tucked into their emerald green foliage.


We went to Kathy's on Sunday for a party to honor my granddaughter Miranda who is doing an incredible job of raising two children, and doing classes at college. Grandma is so proud of you precious girl!
Isn't her cake pretty? I love the colors.
No, I didn't eat a rose. I don't like frosting.

At the end of a wonderful day, my great grandson Tyson brought out his trombone and serenaded us with some very interesting sounds. Not exactly music yet but at least he can make a noise.

We had rain last night but the sun is shining today with a slight breeze fluttering my flag to remind me to pray for our country, our country's leaders and our brave troops.
***
Yesterday I planted 50 King Alfred Daffodil's and now am excited for spring so I can see them all blooming. It was hard work because some of the places I was planting had a lot of rock and clay so digging was a chore.
I'm glad it's done!
***
I pray all is well with each of you.
Hugs!
