Fall I mean. Suddenly it has arrived in my garden. The pool is closed. The furniture stored away. Leaves are falling, the left over not quite ripe tomatoes are looking very sad and my garden needs a little attention. I am not very good at being ruthless and pulling out stuff that still doing OK. I have to wait until it is looking really sorry for itself so that attention is going to be a little while coming as yet. My pots still look quite presentable - what do you think?
It's hard to believe my daughter has been married for a whole month! Then it was summer and now it's almost winter. A tough time of year here in central Canada. It's not that it is not an absolutely gorgeous time of year, the colours are spectacular, the weather is balmy and the grass doesn't require mowing every third day but we all know what is around the corner. When winter does get here it sticks around for a long time and I, for one, am not looking forward to it one bit.
However, one very bright spot on the horizon is a trip to France. Whoohoo!! Unfortunately due to work commitments for GWE, he will stay behind and work his little butt off while my 16 yr old son and I will take a very quick trip over to check on the house, take many photos, pick up our mail!!! and generally soak up some of la bonne vie for a few days.
