It's coming...

the balloons are in the air, pears are hanging from the tree, tonight the Saints are opening the season (and will be kicking booty for those keeping score) and when I looked to my patch of aspens on the mountain top this morning...the blush of yellow was there. I'm thrilled. And by checking the date for last year's aspen change, well, we're a couple weeks ahead of schedule. Lovely. Now if I could just get my fall postcards ready for the swap, that would be an accomplishment. At least I've got ideas. You can always count on me for that.

We (grandchildren and myself) looked for the pink rabbit today but no show!!! Maybe tomorrow.
I don't have a pear tree but had a wonderful crop of Gravenstein apples which were eaten by birds---see if they get any suet this winter!!!!!

I have about 5 RED leaves on my Virginia Creeper. I saw a FLOCK of robins in old Reno the other day. It's going to be an early winter!!!

Hi Barbara--

I sure hope you are right! I really very quite done with 90 degree days. 80s would suit me much better and I'm even ready for 70s.

My creeper is still summer green. Darn it! I live in a summer time warp.

i'm loving the balloon photos over at flickr. i remember that my parents used to take us to a hot air balloon launch when we were kids - it's such a majestic sight - and at sunrise. thanks for sharing these.

Sorry about your saints, though. My seagulls barely beat the bucks yesterday. It bodes ill.

Ani said...

thanks goodness your seagulls won, Justin. i'm in a pool where you pick one winner every week and you can't pick the same team twice...i chose the seagulls.

balloon day was awesome, Emily! i'm going to post about it later.

EllyJane, oh my. i REALLY need to get going on these. i have two different ideas in my head and must test before i really start. but i can't wait for the mail love to start!!!
