|My favorite rose at the Cornwall Rose Garden|
I snapped this lovely yellow rose in my walk home today from the coffee shop. There are actually very few blooms still on the bushes here, given the lateness of the season, I guess. This is one of my all-time favorites, and I'm saddened that I'll need to wait several more months before they come out in full flower. I'll make sure to capture them for as long as they're still available.

I saw this lovely display of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries all in a row, with myriad veggies behind them. The abundance is still here, but nowhere near in the profusion of a few months ago. It's October, after all, and we are moving towards short days and long nights, pumpkins and gourds. Our time change is less than a month away, and then it will be dark around here by 5:00pm! Our Farmers' Market, however, will continue weekly until the Saturday before Christmas.
One of my neighbors has started his Halloween decorations already. That is a mannequin in the doorway, not a guest.
|There's more but this will do for now|
This neighbor always has fun decorations for the seasons, starting with Halloween. I always wonder what their visitors think of the ghoul in the doorway! He has been around every October for the past few years.

I happened to walk down a street I don't visit often, and I saw this pretty walkway with flowers that I suspect are for sale. This person has a QR code to learn more, which I didn't do yet, but I will find out what the story is, one of these days. Our weather has been incredibly beautiful lately, cool and crisp, with little to no rain in the forecast. We could use a little, to be frank. But I know that when it starts, it won't stop for awhile. So I'll enjoy our lovely days until then.
What a totally delightful walk. Thank you. Cool and crisp is my favourite weather.ReplyDelete
I love all the seasonal Halloween yard art! Of course, you'd expect that. And yes,that rose is stunning. I'm all for crisp, dry, autumn days after a humid summer. Bring it on.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing all these fun photos, DJan. We don't see many Halloween/fall decorations in our neighborhood so I really enjoyed this. I love roses too.ReplyDelete
I liked this walk! DJan, your berries photo put a big goofy grin on my face why is that?? This was nice, thank you for sharing :^)ReplyDelete
Yes, I liked the farmer's market pics as well as your rose and the Halloween decorations. I wish we had a farmer's market close by. Our neighborhood has a few Halloween things out already too. We just bought and put a large pumpkin out front today... may add a few more as time goes on.ReplyDelete
Where would you get strawberries in October? A beautiful fall day here, but a week of rain in the forecast.ReplyDelete
Hi DJan, Very nice post with neat pictures. You happen to publish two of my favorite kind of blogs: Daily activities and interesting things you’ve seen (DJan-ity) and Thoughts on life and living well (Eye on the Edge) 😊 I love Farmer’s Markets and your photo of the one in Bham looks great. The 4th photo is so interesting … I’m kind of surprised that Bham is still the kind of city where folks can put things out for sale and trust that folks will actually leave the money … and that others won’t come by and steal it. That kind of thing is, unfortunately, something that can’t be done in Seattle any more. Thanks for a neat post and for your kind comment on my blog today. Hope you have a good rest of the week.

Great looking fruit! I hope your roses bloom a few more weeks!ReplyDelete
Our cabin garden is burnt up. We'll have to wait till spring to see what's left. This weather is pleasant and allows us to enjoy exploring outside, but I am ready for some life giving rain.ReplyDelete
It sounds like a perfect autumn there. Enjoy every minute!ReplyDelete
That mannequin sure fooled me. I'd have waved and shouted "Good morning".ReplyDelete
Halloween decorations have become much more prominent. Many people decorate with lights as well.ReplyDelete
Cute decorations! I could use your weather right now, as it has been very hot and humid here.ReplyDelete
Thanks for taking us on this l walk through your neighborhood. . That rose was spectacular. I love yellow roses. My former house had a climbing one that bloomed clear to Christmas no matter the weather. No rain here in E WA either. Worrisome but the smoke has disappeared. :-)ReplyDelete
Gotten very cool here, too, and the night falls quickly. I have always loved your farmer's market! :) The late yellow roses are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
