I Couldn't Resist...
I couldn't resist buying several potted mums at the local Whole Foods, the first of their kind that I've seen on display. Soon every market and garden store will have them in great variety and numbers. It's a true sign of the changing of the seasons.

Yesterday was a glorious early autumn day, cool (60's F) and windy, with the sound of drying leaves making a characteristic rattle high above. The only problem is, it's still summer! This has to rank as one of the coolest summers on record for where I live. Only one or two days that reached (barely) into the nineties, and many many days that never got out of the seventies. Normal daytime highs for summer here are in the low to mid-eighties. It's been heavenly for me, who hates hot weather.

Title: I Couldn't Resist...
I was frustrated last night in my attempt to leave comments. My browser kept crashing. Even rebooting didn't solve the problem. I gave up and went to bed. Things seem better this morning, fingers crossed.
