September's End 2020

 The leaves are giving us a sure sign that Fall has arrived.

"Autumn is a Second Spring
When Every Leaf is a Flower"
                                        Albert Camus

My favourite Fall garden "flowers" right here!

Pumpkin Patch Raid

School has begun at long last and this little student couldn't be happier.
(whispering a prayer for safety and health)

Perfect weather for a quick get-away to a beautiful park
on Georgian Bay - Awenda Provincial Park

Trails for hiking and biking with dear friends ...

Forest Bathing!

Funky Fungi everywhere - so lovely!

Final garden clean up weekend ...

Seeds for next year's garden

And that was that! At least we saved the still growing Kale.

This hearty dragon kale has been showing up in omletts, smoothies, and delicious sides!

Kale omelette with herbs from the garden!

The herb garden still flourishes with parsley, sage, borage, chives, basil and rosemary

A bit of colour also remains in the flower beds

Late bloomers - "naked lady" crocus indicating 6 weeks till first snow?

We can use all the help we can get these days.

Elder "Beary" tincture ready to share

The corn fields are ripe and ready for the harvest ...

"Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for the harvest."

Till next time - enjoy the fleeting Summer days and stop to appreciate the crisp Autumn air - breath!
Pray for the healing of our world.
Stay well my friends!


  1. Yup, I'm a believer in elderberry. Yours must be great...so close to the source. Mine is a gummy. 😁 Autumn looks beautiful there!

  2. Love your new autumn header . . . and, of course, seeing your favorite garden flowers! Nice that you were able to have a getaway during this beautiful season. Oooo . . . that omelet! Yum!

  3. Your grands are the cutest! So glad you could get away in your camper and enjoy! Lovely photos. I guess Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up soon. Do you think you'll be gathering? Happy October to you!

  4. Your little "garden flowers" are adorable! It's so hard to believe that it's October - how are the months flying by when we are doing so little? How wonderful to be able to get away in your own camper - how I wish we had one now!

  5. I love your Fall display, which I assume is by your front door? Hope school is a wonderful experience for your little student. It's hard to believe she's there already. But I know ...

  6. your grands are just too sweet! Glad you could have one more escape with your 'Escape' before camping season is over for the year! Yes, the corn fields are ripe for harvest...and that is exactly what is happening over here right now. Wishing you and yours and wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving 2020.

  7. Looks like a wonderful month---a getaway, beautiful folliage and a loving family and friends! Sounds perfect!!

  8. Elderburry jelly has protected me and my family from cold and flu over the years! What a nice set of pictures. Regards Naomi https://divineangelnumbers.com/
