Reminders of a perfect fall

The maple tree has lost its leaves, but the fuchsias, nasturtiums and zinnias are still performing.  I am posting these photos so I can return to them during the sodden days ahead and be reminded of how glorious our late summer/fall has been (except for the day we were drowned by an inch and a half of rain and all the storm drains overflowed creating kiddie pools in city streets).

About stillalife

I retired June 30, 2010 after working for 40 years in the field of education and most recently doing school public relations/community outreach in a mid-size urban school district. I wrote for superintendents and school board members. Now I'm writing for me and I hope for you. In this blog, I offer my own views coupled with the latest research on how to preserve our physical and mental health as we age, delve into issues most of us over 50 can relate to like noticing wrinkles and forgetting where we left our keys, discuss the pros and cons of different ways to engage our minds and bodies after we leave the workplace, and throw in an occasional book review, all peppered with a touch of humor, irony, and just plain silliness. Also, I'm on the third draft of my second novel since retirement.

    These are great–I will return to them. This is the first year of my life I have had new roses in November.

    Are these beautiful flowers the result of the Theo chocolate treatment?

      I had to throw away the Theo’s chocolate mulch. After a dog came in the yard I started to worry about the dangers to pets that the mulch created.
