We’re starting to see signs of Fall in Western Massachusetts, despite it being nearly 90 degrees here today and muggy as anything.
Further evidence of the impending seasonal shift – acorns,
and the arrival of pumpkins at the garden centers.
I bought these at Sixteen Acres Garden Center today, where they had mini pumpkins 3/$2 and mini white pumpkins for a dollar apiece. They’re hard to resist.
Elsewhere in the garden…dahlias!
These were given to me by a neighbor, and I planted them several months ago, not knowing what colors they’d be. By happy coincidence, they match the chicken coop perfectly!
Also, the sedums are in bloom.
In other news, Ginger got a haircut.
She’s been wanting to go short for months. Once I was sure she’d made up her mind, I went ahead and booked an appointment. Now I wish I’d done it sooner. This would have been a great cut for summer, and Ginger is thrilled with the result. I’m rather partial to the cut, myself. It makes me think of the movies Sabrina and Roman Holiday.
And, finally, in the category of entertainment, Pepper discovered the Prisma App CPT A downloaded onto my phone the other day. You take a photo, select an artistic style, and PRESTO! the App transforms your image. The girls have had a great time exploring the different options. Here are two of my favorites so far:
Good stuff. It’s amazing what you can do these days with the click of a button.
From the dining room table, hoping your week has been every bit as entertaining,
