It looks like autumn (fall) is here at last. The temperature outside this morning at 8:30 was a chilly 46 degrees. We've had warm weather up until now which meant I couldn't work outside unless I got up at the crack of dawn. My medication prevents me from being in the heat/sun for any length of time so my front landscaping looks like crap. I finally got some of the bigger obnoxious weeds pulled and will be working on the rosemary plants which are trying to take over. I'd dry the rosemary but the mulch I put down had a warning that plants should not be used as food since there was a weed killer in it. Won't do that again.
We don't get much in the way of color down here. Mostly russets, some yellow, very little red although more maples are being planted it seems.
This is not my favorite time of year since it symbolizes an ending. I prefer Spring since it symbolizes new beginnings. At least we have seasons here, although some say we only have two...hot and cold.
what's your favorite season?

I am so tired of all the political ads and will be so glad when elections are done and over with. I know for whom I'm voting and know that the ads on TV contain innuendos (on both sides), some untruths, few actual facts. Some candidates are backed with outside money, lots of it, and some struggle to pay for air time. Whenever the ads come on I hit the mute button. No one is perfect. We all know that. I don't discuss politics with friends, or anybody for that matter. How many friendships have been broken up because both parties were on opposite sides politically? I care about the person, not how he or she votes.
