Fall for us in Riverside County, CA
really begins in late October.
Sometimes, fall is still going on in December!
We certainly do have strange weather
here in Southern California!!!
Here are some shots from this and last year:
Some wildflowers outside the hotel we stayed at
in South Dakota,
our water fountain and one of our hydrangeas looking
a bit tired from summer’s heat,
the trees across from my crosswalk last fall,
and my faux pumpkin collection this year!
And, of course, Yoda!
~ I’m getting in a cooking mood, so…
Will be sharing some baking with you soon!!!
about baking loaves of bread ~
like pumpkin bread
and around here I put in dark chocolate chips!
time to wash windows and screens,
sweep away cobwebs
(or not, if you are saving them for little
trick or treaters!).
cleaning up the yard, raking lots and lots of leaves
dumping out the old compost
and putting in new leaves to create anew!
clipping boxwood, pulling stray weeds and
seeing rose bushes putting out
magnificent blooms as the weather turns crisp and cool!
wonderful last barbecue dinners outside on the patio,
and the first pot roast of the season scenting
the kitchen with its wonderful, warm,
as we take a long-needed nap
while football drones quietly in the background
and we are happy
with our family
Here’s to Fall memories!
May they always be warm & full of Love,
