October 17 and Autumn is arriving very slowly

We have all the trappings of Fall – the pumpkins, scarecrows, etc. but the weather is not very Fall-like. Still experiencing lovely warm days and no need for wood stoves or heating yet.

Gorgeous dahlias from Sandy and John’s garden, and lovely chard from ours.

Dennis is killing himself (I hope not!) building his long-dreamed-about wood-fired pizza oven, which will be right next to the pergola!

Meanwhile, I’ve been cutting back the perennial beds and getting them ready for winter.
