There's A Light

My winter hermitage begins on a full moon Halloween
With daylight savings time

The growing Covid plague and the first killer freeze. The wind has started blowing. I won't mention the impending vile election.

The native Witch Hazel is in bloom.

There's a light.

There's a light that comes streaming into my life

In the darkness

Of everybody's life.

With all due credit.

Prelude To Hurricane #4

As we pedal into the unknown

The re-set of the fixed loft windows has stayed dry through three hurricanes and plenty other water. New interior window sills will make a fine winter project.

We will be fine dining on root crops and squash for hurricane #4. I did not grow the prettiest food, but it sure is tasty.

The Full Autumn

The Sisters will be arriving tomorrow for a weeks visit and acquiring their mother and one cat for the winter. I won't be blogging pictures much. This bit of full on fall may have to tide you over.

I will be eating home cooked fine produce. We have beets, rainbow carrots, sweet banana pepper, parsnips, potatoes, fresh frozen flat yellow pole beans and four kind squash. A plant based diet is all trendy now. I'm doing my part to help.

So click on a picture for the fall slide show. Laters.

It Is Fall

So far we have lots of yellow.

Is It Fall Yet?

According to the leaves on the ground, yes.

According to a north facing slope, yes.

Elsewhere there is still a lot of green about. A good time to start the winter shuffling of stuff.

One sublime day, one moment will arrive. It always does and I will be here to see it.

A cool, sunny and dry Indian Summer is scheduled for all of next week. There could be multiple sublimes.

The Gothic Bloom Day

The mood is changing. The fade away of leaf and light has begun.

Not quite finished, October is for asters, mums and fallen leaves.

Grasses wave on the breeze of an incoming cold spell. Monet lives in a number of vibrations.

Ready to step through?

The Goth phase is definitely coming out. 

Another Dragonfly has landed.

The voodoo lilies were put to sleep. How does this happen? This stuff?

There is an aster down below you need to see.

It has been spreading by runners nicely. No seedlings to be found yet.

When I have monarchs this is their favorite aster. There were very few and I mean hardly any butterflies in this year of ugly leaves.

Blue Wood Aster, Clematis stans and Rattlesnake Master seed heads.

All the house plants have to come in tomorrow. A slightly colder than the first patchy frost is on the way. Hit or miss, the mood is changing.  This is the Goth phase.
