Yes, this is from this year...and it was taken a couple weeks ago...we keep seeing a few more touches of color here and there.
Of course, poison ivy is always one of the first things to change...you just have to admit it is beautiful when it is changing. If it wasn't for the itch factor, it would be tempting to have it for its autumn colors.
We have been having such beautiful weather....and sitting out late of the evening or stepping outside after dark, it really feels and sounds like fall. Next week, though, we are supposed to have temps in the 90's with a heat index maybe reaching 100º. I don't suppose we will enjoy that.
I am in the process of pin basting one of my quilts together...just had to take a break. Crawling around on the floor on my knees for so long really gets to me. At least if it is too hot, I will have that to work on next week.
