Fall Update

There it is that darn cast that is getting in the way of doing anything creative. Everything is feeling much better, I just have to be patient.

Fall seems to come on so fast in Upstate NY.

One of the last Hibiscus blooms.

A little inspiration for some etched metal.

The bees were going crazy, on the early Fall blooming plants.
This is a great plant with dark burgundy foliage and these lovely creamy pink blooms. It called Cimicifuga "Brunette."

I love moss.

This is one of my Dad's Hydrangeas, some old variety. Mom and Dad had an evergreen nursery, Ray grew them and Mary sold them in the driveway. This all happened after his day job as a welder, and he loved every minute of being outside growing things.

This is a Fall blooming, fragrant, clematis that is called Paniculata. It attracts bees so plant it where that won't be a problem. That is Risa in the background.

Sedum, always a Fall favorite.

This beautiful flower is called a Toad Lily, it looks like a little orchid.

Tomorrow I have a physical therapy appointment and Rings and Things is in town,
which is another kind of therapy. I am going to try and list some earrings and beads tomorrow,
my typing endurance is definitely improving.

Glad your typing endurance is lengthening and simple chores are becoming easier. May the healing continue. And quickly.
