According to my calendar, it's been autumn since the 23rd of September. According to the weather, it's been autumn since...well, it hasn't been yet. I'm here waiting not-so-patiently for some nice cool weather, but every time we have a day of chilly temperatures, it's followed immediately by a day with warm, 80 degree weather. The trees don't seem to be aware of the fact that we aren't having very fall-esque temperatures because all of the leaves are turning the most fabulous red and orange colors.
A friend and I took a walk to a corner store today and stumbled across an adorable house with a lovely garden. I would love to have a garden when I have my own house and I always feel a little jealous of people when they successfully grow flowers because I seem to lack skill in the art of gardening. I really enjoyed these folks' garden and the butterflies did, too.
