First Pictures of Fall

Have you ever seen such a happy African violet? The girls gave me this plant 2 years ago for Mother's Day. It wasn't doing too well so I bought a new pot at IKEA. I think there must be 15 blooms on it at least. Its very happy in this spot.

We have a bunch of old doors outside that we plan to use to build a headboard one day. They came from an old house down the road. I moved a couple to use as a backdrop for my mannequin. Between the last two, I discovered a black widow. I am leaving her. She isn't hurting anyone. I peek at her every day and she just sits protecting her egg sacks. After she dies, we'll move the sacks somewhere further away.

The last of the tomatoes, still hanging on. We are still having 80+ degree days so we are still getting a few. The rest of the garden has already been tilled under.
