Dew, not rain

This photo shows a late-season rose touched not by rain but by dew. Well, that's changing today.

We enjoyed a summery weekend. On the news, they are reporting that the last time it was this warm here in October was in 1954. I took the sensible advice that French Girl in Seattle gave me and put off until later the autumn gardening chores so that I could enjoy the last day of our very late 1014 2014 summer. Today's forecast: damp weather and falling temperatures. That's normal as La Toussaint approaches.


  1. Ken, I didn't know you were THAT old....??? 8-)
    Lovely rose picture... just spotted two nice buds coming by the rose at our gate...
    there is something especially attractive about late roses.

  3. Merci, CHM, de m'avoir expliqué mon erreur. C'est corrigé. Tim : MDR.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
