(Sunset on mudflats – Walton, NS)
October brings with it the most beautiful skies of the year, in my opinion. This photo was taken several years ago on 35mm transparency film which was then scanned, but this is a typically beautiful fall sunset on the Bay of Fundy. Walton was my home for most of my life and this beach owns a large part of my soul. :)
My daughter set off on her cross-country adventure today. Though it was very bittersweet to see her drive away, I’m so excited for her new job and all the new opportunities it may bring. It’s an almost 6000 km drive, so Mother will feel much better about the whole thing when she arrives safely. My younger daughter and grandson will arrive some time tomorrow evening, so that’s very nice timing.
I’ve been away from the computer the past couple of days, helping my daughter pack and cleaning up her apartment. As for the garden, despite some very, very cold nights that brought with them warnings of frost, my little balcony garden continues to thrive! A hanging basket has gotten its second wind after a severe hair cut and is covered with clusters of new buds — the peach verbena, of course! :) Everything else seems to be loving this cooler, wetter weather, too. The impatiens have never looked better, and I wouldn’t mind if they decided to give it up for the season — I don’t think I’ve ever been so sick of pale pink! No complaints, really.
We’re in for some heavy rain tomorrow, but I’ll try to post some garden pics anyway. How does YOUR garden grow?
