October 8th brought the last weekend of fall baseball, a single elimination tournament. They won their first game, and got to go home after the second game. This is Billy on 3rd base, waiting to see if he needed to tag up before he scored. He did. We had quite a string of beautiful, 80 degree fall days. Unheard of in Minnesota. But we enjoyed them while we could!
The warm days and non-freezing nights have kept my cosmos blooming late into the season. I keep taking pictures of them when I can't think of anything else. I keep thinking that this will be my last chance before they freeze, and they still haven't!
The warm fall days have also meant weeks and weeks without rain...6 weeks actually, until October 12th...there was glorious rain. Thunder and lightening and rain. And now it's been fairly dry again. It sure was nice while it lasted!
The mums have been sort of pretty this fall, they would look better if I had watered them a little more often!
I couldn't go too long without a picture of Molly. This was on one of those slow work days when I couldn't help but walk by and wake up the cat...and then took her picture. She wasn't amused.
We took a quick trip to the farm that Sunday. This is Breezy standing on a hill checking me out. It was another warm day. I love the colors in this shot!
A cosmos in my garden. Again.
Mums on my kitchen table on October 18th. My dad would have been 80 years old on that day. It's been over 3 years since he passed away...and I still miss him...but feel his presence in all that we do.
The JV team didn't do much better the next morning. A 0-7 loss. And now JV is done for the season. It's a little sad that they are done playing, but having a lighter schedule around here will be nice!
And with that I'll end with more flowers. Cosmos.
A not very scary scare crow by my front door.
Cosmos again, with matching mums in the background.
Thanks for stopping by while I caught up with my daily photos. There is a roast in my crock pot making the house smell wonderful, I wish I could share that with you too! Until next time.
