October 2017 – Not Done List

First Friday in October

Well, the calendar says it is fall, but so far the temperature doesn’t agree.  There have been a few cooler days, but it’s still warm.  If you look real hard you do see some signs of fall.

My yellow & gold mums have been enjoying the weather and our Pampas Grass has bloomed.  As long as we don’t have any extreme wind or heavy rain (or snow), we will be able to enjoy these plumes for some time.
