It’s very warm today but I know the chilly temps are coming which means bringing in all my house plants. Each one has to be cleaned and de-bugged before it comes in which means this is a huge job. I loaded up the golf cart so I didn’t have to lug them all – Faye helped. So did B.C. and Jackie supervised from above. My elephant ear plant is just huge and I would like to bring it in as well but I don’t think it will thrive in the house. I should just dig the bulb and keep it until next spring when I plant it again.
September weather brings pampas grass in bloom as well as this hydrangea shrub which lost several branches last May when we got that 12 inches of wet, heavy snow. It doesn’t look like it harmed the shrub much, does it? I like to cut some of these and dry them to put in my Christmas tree.
Rick’s tomatoes are covered with green fruit but today I found a ripe one – guess what I’m having for lunch?
Our UPS man brought us some exciting boxes today – red and white bolts from Minnick and Simpson’s Midwinter Reds collection and a collection from Heather Bailey with several Kaffe Fasset pieces thrown in. No, this doesn’t look like us but isn’t it just beautiful? Can’t wait to start sewing with this line.
Back to cleaning my plants! Thanks for all your emails, comments, questions and condolences. I sometimes forget how many people are reading my “blabber” – ha!

Edna Steiff’s Salad – ( I dare you to try this – I’m afraid to)
2 dill pickles
This ancient old recipe card was in my aunt’s collection of recipes – I cannot imagine what the story is behind this salad.
Just a Joke…
