Good Morning, It's Sunday...

Fall is definitely here!  The maples are turning a crimson red, the mornings are crisp, the farmer's markets are winding down from the start of summer.  Where "does" the summer go?  I was at a store the other day, and Christmas trees were in full regale.  I said to myself, "Christmas?", yet, it's almost October, and I know some places have things out by August.  My late husband always used to comment that the holiday started earlier and earlier each year.  I used to have my own dried floral and craft business, and while he didn't, I understood the timeline.  I had to create my designs in June for Christmas, in November for Valentine's and in December for my spring line.  But fall is my favorite time of year.  My last home had a rather large porch, and it was adorned with pumpkins weighing no less than 35 lbs, dried corn stalks behind them as a stage drop and the entire scene was scattered with indian corn.  It was beautiful.  I will share with you closer to Halloween what I now do, which is a complete departure from past days.  Below is a picture of this morning...the fog is hanging in the air, and in the center, although it's hard to tell, the sun is peeking out on Vashon Island.  I may take another few shots throughout the day to show you just how things can change around here.  In the meantime, below the weather scene are some of the items I will sharing with you in the future...Bridge Creek Fresh Ginger Muffins and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  The gardenia enhancing the ensemble I cut from my garden this morning.  Have a great Sunday!
