1). Football is back!
The Bucs…..no comment….
The USF Bulls finally won one….
The Gators…..oh yeah!
Though I am a USF Bull,my money went to Gainesville,with Erich,the Younger
2). Every morning,I can feel the start of Autumn.
It seems cooler.
……Or else I’m living in a dream world…..and I’m pretty good at that…..
3). The veggie garden is in full Fall mode…..
The first Roma tomatoes……
The Kale is growing…..
4). Though I’m not much in to seasonal decorating
except for Christmas-
oh,Hell.Yes I’m into seasonal decorating
the front entryway has been decorated….
When Autumn seems to be in the air,I do it.
Maybe because it reminds me of when I lived in New England.
….And I was always good at pretend….
Photo bomb by the flamingo….
Crotons just scream Fall,don’t they?
5). An arrangement from the garden,with Fall blooms…..
Pine Cone Ginger,Vitex,Plumbago,Hyssop,Sweet Almond in an antique blue Mason jar
6). The urge to make Butternut Squash Soup……
so easy to make,and so dee-lish!
7). The cats are loving the return to cooler weather…..
……..Maybe,I spoke too soon……

When Hillsborough County finally goes to these?
took ‘em long enough…..
……and leaves ya with 3 of these?…..
Covered with paint,and held together with duct tape……
yep,I use them for painting stuff on…..don’t judge…..
If you’re like me,you think,”those would make great gardening containers…”
Drill some holes in the bottom with a spade bit.
Line the bottom with weed blocker.
Fill ‘em up with good soil.
Pot ‘em up with broccolli starters,and some lettuce seeds.
….yep,that’s how I roll…..

…..when the world stopped turning?
I will always remember where I was….
I remember what I was wearing.
Turquoise shirt with white crop pants.
I was still working in the surgery scheduling office at Tampa General Hospital.
Someone came into the office and said that a plane had crashed into a building in New York City.
…..Little did we know…..
…….and it was on the Today Show.
Little did we know…..
I had a question about a certain doctor’s surgery schedule,so I wandered into the doctor’s lounge to ask him about it.As we looked up at the giant flat screen TV,on the wall,the second plane hit the second Tower.
We looked at each other and said,
”What the fuck was that?Did you see that?”
……Little did we know…….

Interesting in that it has birds moving south,
Could it be an early,harsh winter for us Southern gardeners?
What I have found interesting,
is very few Caroline Wrens,
an incredible number of Cardinals and Blue Jays.
And the number of Pileated Woodpeckers has dropped off.
Though I have changed nothing in the birdfeeders.
After an absence of a few years,I have noticed more Swallow Tailed Kites this year.
And,though I hear the Red Shouldered Hawks,I haven’t had any land in the garden,as in previous years.Though I have had an abundance of aggressive squirrels.
The Marsh Rabbits have been in abundance.Actually,they seem to be quite unafraid of me.
You notice anything?
Is this a freak of nature?
A natural occurrence?
