Wooly this morning, a slight draft from SW, temp 17C, sun dosen't appear to have the strength to gain the upper hand with the fog at the moment. Weatherman suggesting possiblility of showers later on. Temps dropped back for today and the week, a mix of sun and overcast.

Gardening in the clean up mode, pots are about done, the window boxes fast approaching there span. In years past quite often had frost decide when they were done, certainly not the case this year. Some of the maples begining to change, also a number of leaves noticed down off the birch and poplar.

Packing ongoing, a bit each day, with some last minute items being added to the pile. The concept Emily is only moments away from a mall different from local shopping, if she is missing something she can go and fetch it.

Dear Rob:

I am with you on gardening. Everything is just devastated due to the lack of rain. I started out trying to water all the beds but there is just too many and didn't want to risk the well. Thus, my gardens look like H-E-**. The trees also are having a hard time and the apples and leaves have been raining down consistently. Can you imagine what Texas and those places look like. How they even keep their livestock on the open range watered is beyond me.

It is 27.3 here at the noon hour. So much for doing stuff outside.

All are off to work though so will do some inside catch up until it cools a bit.

Have a great day.

Good morning Rob.
The harvest is well under way in these parts.
The trucks are on the road, combines in the field and some fields have been harvested and prepared for next season.
I haven't heard of the quality of the harvest but it seems to be good. It sure is an early start this year with the dry spring and warm weather.
I see Hazel has lost another sister. That family sure has longevity on the female side. I guess Alma was 99. Hazel will be 87 in November and cleared her own sidewalk last winter.
