Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. George Eliot

"The fall colours are always so brilliant against a dark sky.

This afternoon, we had storm warnings, so I went outside to capture the glory of the moment!

wasn't disappointed!  

This may be my favorite...maybe...

Or this.... taken by my hubby....

Happy Thanksgiving

How I love fall!  Summer clothes are sorted and packed and winter clothes are brought from their hiding place.  Hello warm and cozy sweaters, and favorite jeans!

My garden is preparing for its long sleep, although, there are still tomatoes to harvest.

There are still beans to pick for winter soups and stews.

Our grape vines produced enough fruit for only 5 jars of jelly, but those five jars will be savoured.

We try to produce some food to fill our pantry.  I think it is important to do this.  So much of our food is denatured now, and the threat of the recent merger of Bayer and Monsanto inspires fear.  Will these companies one day control most of the food production in the world?  What can we expect then, I wonder.

Soon we will have to fire up our pellet stove, as the nights are gettetting cooler, but this weekend promises to be sunny and warm!

Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels to all!
