Fall, where are you?


Our fall here in the Pacific Northwest has been greatly delayed by beautiful summer weather. While I love the 70 degree weather, I have also been dying for fall to arrive.
Fortunately, someone had forgotten to water the summer planters during our warm fall weather, so I didn't have any guilt replacing the 'gonners' with a few inexpensive fall plants. 
Mums, cabbage, a few groundcover and tiny pumpkins & gourds from Safeway did the trick! 
I feel like I have to defend the black cat - it reminds me of that song we all grew up with - "one of these things is doin' their own thing...one of these things just doesn't belong".  My explanation is that the kids got so excited when they saw pumpkins that they begged for that darn black cat that I deny them every year.
They don't yet associate pumpkins with Starbucks pumpkin spice latte like I do, so I had to eventually give in.
The owls? They were my indulgence. What can I say? I caught the fever!
Fall has arrived!
