It's That Time of Year...

As much as I'd like to deny it, summer is ending. The air is cooler in the morning, and I need a light jacket to keep me warm on my way to work. The leaves are beginning to change color. 

It's time for the Fall House Top quilt on the dining room table. Last year it was a flimsy, this year, it's the real thing.

I've also got some plants for the garden. Some ornamental grasses for the front steps, some Yarrow and some Hyssop for the side garden, a ground cover for the rock garden and a couple of things to add to my shade garden that didn't make it in this spring, some Goatsbeard and  a Black Eyed Susan.

The cooler weather also means I'll be making more soup. This is a batch of Roasted Vegetable Stock that's simmering on the stove.

It's supposed to be cooler tomorrow, so I'll spend tomorrow in the sewing studio.

That quilt looks WONDERFUL on your table . . . the leaves are changing here, too (and the temps are no longer in the 90s).

Autumn is slow coming Near Philadelphia. I love yarrow. When Joe was in college (he's an architect), and had to create models of buildings he was designing, dried yarrow made the BEST trees. I've always thought of it as "trees" rather than yarrow. We used to always have some drying because we never knew when a project would demand it!

Mum made soup today too. Egg drop soup, the fancy kind that tastes super.

I can smell the soup down here, yummy! I love Fall, my only complaint is that fall is too short! It is my favorite season! Fall housetop looks great on your table!!! Hugs!
