WHEN WITCHES PARTY

As Halloween approaches
(and it's getting close)
there's a group of "ladies" in the 'hood,
who gather together
for a Witches Party.

This coven assembles
to mix their potions,
agree on their hexes,
and celebrate the season.

And the neighbors understand.
Mostly.

So, watch out.

 EVERY MIGHTY OAK . . .


STARTS WITH ONE OF THESE


I picked up a handful of acorns
while walking in the woods,
and noticed some were already sprouting.

I think I'll plant an oak tree!

FINAL HARVEST

Summer's over,
cold weather is around the corner,
so it's time to get our veggie garden
ready for winter.

Maggie and I cleaned out the old plants,
added lots of compost, and
harvested lots of chard and kale,
beautiful red and orange carrots
and a surprising bounty of green beans.

So much food came from our tiny garden.
(Lots of health, too.)

DRIVING THROUGH
THE AUTUMN WOODS

The trees are competing right now.

To show off.
Which one has the most spectacular color?

So I drove through the woods,
on narrow gravel roads.
To get up close,
to decide for myself.

But I can''t pick a winner.
It's too overwhelming.

It's best when they perform
TOGETHER.

AUTUMN ON THE MERAMEC

A trip down to the cabin
did not disappoint.

Fall colors reflecting on
the Meramec River.

A beautiful Saturday!
