Saturday, September 29, 2007


I had put bread out in the snowball tree for the birds and watched them eating from the open doorway. One robin came up to the very doorstep, looked up at me, and then flew away!

The rains are beginning and soon all the robins will be gone until spring.

Another Sign of Fall

John and I have both come down with the stomach flu and are now being forced to survive on the kind of foodstuff you see in the photograph. I forgot to include bananas. And bottled water. I came down sick Tuesday and could manage nothing but sips of water for two days. This morning I dared drinking a cup of Earl Grey tea. It was well worth the risk. I'm getting tired now. I think I'll go lie down for a bit.

Last of the Summer Flowers

Summer is over. These pinks are the last of them. Pinks are members of the Dianthus family, a group of over 300 species, and are very easy to grow. They have a nice scent too. This group of flowers includes Carnations, Baby's Breath, and Sweet William.
