I am looking forward to next year's bloom as I have added a few more to the plantings. Alice was digging up some of her plants and asked me if I would like some. I look forward to seeing them come to life and bring fond thoughts as I remember her each year.
As well the roses are putting out what will probably be their last flush of blooms before I prune them next month.
The bougainvillea is also gorgeous along the fence right now. These are definitely great drought plants as the less water they get, the more they bloom.
Halloween was exceptionally quiet this year. I doubt that we even had ten trick or treaters and half of those were a bit old to be out. There is just something about handing out candy to kids with beard stubbles that does not make my day!!! We always have our children and grandchildren over for soup and chili dogs before they head off to a few of the neighbors who know them. It's tough to get a picture of all of them as everyone is too excited about getting out or eating their stash.
Also in the mail I received a package from Jill of some great novelty prints and some selvages. Slowly, but surely I am getting enough selvages for a good selvage project. There are so many wonderful things to be done with them and I am excited about giving them a go.
As well I had a Christmas panel from Timeless Treasures that I made into a lap quilt for the Christmas season. I will donate this one to the grandchildren's school for their auction later this month.
