What a difference a day makes!

Pumpkins in my pumpkin patch at the Community Gardens.

Just a day of travel brings me back to the Midwest. It was, I must admit, a long day of travel...car...ferry...car...flight...flight...car. Sigh.
 
The weather was cool when I arrived home at Midnight, but the sky was clear. It was great fun perusing my gardens by the light of the waxing moon. I believe I slept the sleep of the dead that night and woke to early morning fog and drizzle.
 
By noon I knew it had cleared enough to take a hike out to the Community Gardens to check on my pumpkin patch. I don't know what I was expecting, but the gardens were huge and beautiful. Pumpkins everywhere!! It will be a grand Halloween at this old house this year.
 
So, in a few days I will be back in the swing of things here. For now...still some sand in my shoes and a few tears in my eyes.
 
Until tomorrow.
