Hi everyone. Fall as arrived in full swing here the past few days. We had a fabulous September with unprecedented summer weather nearly every day. The last two weeks of the month was very hot and humid with highs in the upper 20's and a humidex of mid-30's. I was loving the heat but reality bit last Thursday when more seasonal temperatures arrived and it cooled down a lot.
I spent ten days in September in Calgary visiting our daughter and her family. The boys are growing and are so smart. I noticed some changes in them since our visit in June.
We have 3 little superheroes in the family and they like to accompany us when shopping....well, two of them did this day ~ Spiderman and Captain America.
Our oldest, at 7, grew some giant sunflowers this summer. He was quite proud of them.
The drive to the mall is always beautiful - especially the dramatic skies.
We had some dramatic skies here as well.
I've decorated for fall outside and inside.
The late summer blooms kept on coming despite the lack of rain. The gardens took a beating this year and so did our lawn.
Sunset the other night - when it was really hot.
We have about 15 - 20 deer yarding in our area lately. Lots of babies - singles, twins and triplets - keep me entertained most days. At night we hear cars jamming their brakes or slowing down fast when deer cross the road in front of them. There has been one killed so far which is sad. They are a nuisance but so pretty. And so plentiful!
Sunset on the St. John River last week.
This lone boater was having fun. I'm not sure how he does this but it was interesting to see.
Yesterday we went to the local apple orchard to pick Cortland and Honeycrisp apples. We met our friends there so Tracey and I had our picture taken in the arbour.
We had our first frosty morning today - October 1. A great way to start the new month. It was a beautiful sunny day but chilly at 15C. I'm already missing the summer heat!
I hope you had a good September and are ready for the beautiful month of October with all it's colour. Our leaves may be a bit faded this year due to the lack of rain but they are already putting on a show. Our Thanksgiving is this coming weekend so I wish all my Canadian readers a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
Thanks for stopping buy and catching up with me.
I appreciate your visits and comments.
