Autumn has almost come and gone already, the leaves are falling now rapidly and the weather is getting quite cold. There was frost on the blackberry bushes yesterday morning and today it is raining hard. Such a nice change after a long hot smokey summer of fires in northern California.
My heart goes out to those rebuilding and who had lost there homes all throughout northern California. So many people evacuated, homes lost, lost loved ones, and to those that lost their animals. It all happened so quick. I drove through right as the fires started in Lake county. It was devastating. I hope that everyone is safe and sheltered now.
As the rains fall the leaves disappear, here is a last glimpse of Autumn this year. I love the range of colors from yellow, to orange and green.
Yesterday the neighbor helped me carve my pumpkin. She made a drawing on paper and then drew it on the pumpkin. I told her I wanted vampire teeth. She always comes up with creative ideas, she is a natural artist.
After we finished carving the pumpkin I put a pumpkin spice candle in the pumpkin. How appropriate is that? I liked the pumpkin so much it never made it outside. 🙂 thanks for your help M.!
