Fall is definitely here! Some days, I think we have moved past fall and into winter. This was what we woke up to Thursday morning. That snow is awfully close!
Before we go inside, there are a few plants still thriving outside that I want to show you. Soon the cool evening temperatures will force the end of these plants, but for now they are here to enjoy. I am not sure what this plant was called, but I just love it. I will be sure to plant this in my hanging baskets again next year.
This is my husband’s Castor bean plant. He brought it home in a small 4″ pot at the beginning of August. It is extremely fast growing. Since they aren’t hardy in our climate, we will have to plant one again next spring.

Once inside, there are two quilts hanging in the entrance. This is “Moonlight over the Pumpkin Patch”. This is a quilt that was just finished last weekend. Finishing this one allows me to cross another UFO off my list on my sidebar for this year. The quilt pattern was BQ. I started this quilt over a year ago. I first saw a quilt made from this pattern at the Lynden fair. Although it is a simple pattern, I was distracted and didn’t finish until now.
