Yesterday I went out and about looking to see what I could find. The weather has been very nice here this September and it was just one of those very peaceful, warm days. It was a bit overcast which just made everything seem softer.

After cruising around the countryside (and stopping at my favourite country store) I came home and took a look in my garden. It still looks beautiful with lots of flowers still blooming. This autumn sedum is just starting to open, but the frenzied bees weren’t waiting for anything – they were all over the place.

Oh, and the other thing I did was scrounge around some abandoned buildings and you wouldn’t believe what I came home with . . . (a door). I have it hidden under the deck. I didn’t take any photos of me dragging it to the car and hefting it into the back of my vehicle – I was too anxious and it was not easy navigating through the wheat field with Canada Thistle outnumbering the wheat (ouch!). I’m seriously too old to be doing such things – but then I guess you are only as old as you feel and my passion for old weathered things simply cannot be denied.
