I managed to delude myself for the past few weeks imagining it was late September. Last I looked, many trees had leaves, and I was still planting a shrub or two. This morning, with its light rain and cold front, shattered my illusions.
I also looked at the calendar and realized Thanksgiving is a mere week and a half away. For those of you trying to face this gluten and dairy filled fest for the first time, going to a blog like Karina’s Kitchen is a good place to start. I make a mean gluten and dairy free turkey and dressing, and I’ll try to post the recipe next week.
However, instead of gazing into the future, let’s instead talk of blooms and brilliant foliage for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day hosted by Carol of May Dreams Gardens. By the way, this meme of Carol’s is one of the most successful in the gardening world, and I understand this is her 34th post. People visit from all over and leave their comments and links on her blog. Why don’t you head on over to peruse them too.
