What, pray tell, have I been doing of late, you may be asking; or not.

Besides sitting on the patio and reading Moby Dick, Starting my "new" job in Massena and getting back into my gym routine, I've spent the weekend sucking up the perfect fall days watching nature's quilting party and imaging the newly created quilt of russet and gold blanketing the ground as she snuggles in for the long winter to come.






Oh, and yesterday I started cleaning up the vegetable garden.  I decided to leave the marigolds in their profuse splendor until we get a frost; which is scheduled to arrive tonight while I'm on call in Massena.

We have the same flowers at my country cottage, I didn´t know what they were called in English. And yes, we´re keeping them too, though any night now the frost will be here.

Gorgeous Fall images. My marigolds are so beautiful right now too. I think I'll try to thin out my irises this weekend and pick my tomatoes, before our first real frost.
