Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

 Hi Dear Folk,

I can't believe it's November 1st.  We've been having some beautiful weather again, up in the eighties, as it was for last weekend.  I managed to get out in the yard for a bit and bring in many of my terracotta and china pots, we keep them on the outside basement steps, which are covered, as space for garden items is at a premium.  Was able to transplant some geraniums out of the garden back into pots and hope to propagate them and keep them through the winter, I will see how well that works out.  Also brought in my bougainvillea, hope that makes it.  The squirrels decimated my Tahitian Bridle Veil, I may be able to salvage some, re pot it and bring that in for the winter.

I've been working on my crazy quilt, piecing and feather stitching.  I just got another Sarah Moss book from the library, this is fiction "Night Waking."  It's proving to be an interesting read.  I just finished Names For The Sea, autobiographical about Iceland.  So far a lot of the beginning of Night Waking I think could almost be autobiographical as Sarah Moss has two young boys and Anna has two young boys.

Just a couple of pics from The Boy of his trip last weekend to Shenandoah National Park, Virginia.

He had lovely weather all weekend, what a view and here is his Mazda Miata, just right for this kind of drive.

The Boy.

  1. Our weather has suddenly changed today. Beautiful Autumn day yesterday, sunny and warm about 61F. Today has been dull and cold with some drizzle. I have brought my two variegated geraniums indoors today. One is new this year but the other one is several years old and has survived over winter indoors. I keep meaning to take cuttings. I enjoyed Sarah Moss autobiographic but hadn't thought of the fiction. Will be interested to hear your review. What a wonderful view the boy had and a great car for that drive.
