Slowly the seasons change. Summer moves into fall. With it comes the desire to be home.  This movement is always an introspective time for me. I tend to hunker down and retreat.

Putting out reminders of the season is calming.  The garden needs to be put to bed, and as our temps are cooling, I should get something done.  The back garden is disgraceful.  It takes so much  heat and I just can't work in that heat anymore.  The front garden is more shaded and this year survived very well.

That little sweater I knit weeks ago will be gifted to a granddaughter this weekend. It is birthday time for Evelyn and brother Luke!  I am putting the buttons on today and wrapping it up in a sweet box.  Knits needs special treatment don't you think?
