Fall is arriving in small amounts here in the south. Leaves are falling, fungi is flourishing and the grass is beginning to go dormant for the winter ahead. My azaleas and other blooming plants however are still producing blooms like crazy! I now have six more bushes that are full of buds and starting to flower. They did not bloom in spring because we had three consecutive days of heavy frost/ice that killed all the buds even on the fruit trees. Now that fall is here, my plants are blooming quite crazily! I am hoping this is not a trend starting with these plants. I really prefer the blooms to be in the spring. But, I will take them however they decide to bloom. With hurricane Nate it brought in very muggy, humid air to add to the heat. Now I am hoping the temps will lower and bring in cooler non humid days for us. We have the leaf color change and they are falling, just need the cooler air now. Hope your world is filled with what you love!

our weather in Northern Indiana is unseasonably warm. We should have had a killing frost already. The summer was dry so fall foliage will be dull. October 12 brought a record amount of rain. 5 inches in one day. Usually the fish in the pond have slowed down by now but they are still begging for food. I have not had to turn on the heat in the house yet, except for in the bathroom. Next Tuesday is supposed to barely reach 50. I'll be stitching on Tuesday for sure!
