Cherry tree giving in to autumn


The leaves on the cherry tree have such an elegant way of drooping.
This lady is aging well.

Sweet peas for next year



I've been cracking open the dried sweet pea shells on the dining room table.
A few have rolled between the old wood floor boards.

Chestnuts in the lazy autumn sun


The sun is low in the sky now and the chestnuts have scattered themselves all over the front yard.
I put a few in my pocket for later.

My dear friend Tammy cut these rose hips for me from her very loyal climbing rose.

the last sweet peas


I picked dozens of bouquets of sweet peas this summer.
These beauties deserve to go to seed.
