Fall is not in the air where I live yet, but this Hodgepodge about Fall makes me even more ready to see it arrive. To see how other bloggers have answered these questions Joyce has given us, click HERE
and scroll down to the list of participants.
1. What's something you'd rate a 10/10? Tell us why.
Having been married to my man for 52 years. We have a beautiful relationship that has gotten better and sweeter as we've aged and learned to love each other more completely.
2. What job would you be terrible at? What makes you think so?
Accounting. Numbers are not and never have been my thing.
3. When did you last take a fall? What's something you're falling for (in a good way) these days?
Having had back and cervical fusions, falling is a fear; therefore, I take extra precautions to not fall. So far, I haven't. Something I am falling for these days is fixing up and enjoying our new covered back porch.
National Apple Harvest Festival (near Arendtsville PA, close to Gettysburg), Harvest on the Harbor (Portland Maine), German Village Festival (Columbus Ohio), Wellfleet Oyster Fest (Cape Cod), and Wine and Chile Fiesta (Santa Fe NM)
Have you ever been to any of the festivals listed? Which one appeals to you most? Does your hometown have any sort of fall celebration, and if so will you make it a point to attend?
I have not been to any of the listed festivals, but the one that sounds the most interesting would be Harvest on the Harbor (Portland Maine). I have never been there, but think the fall colors would be magnificent.
A second choice would be the one in Santa Fe simply because I love Santa Fe.
5. What is your goodbye message to summer?
Good bye, farewell, good riddance, don't let the door hit you on the way out, and take the mosquitoes and lovebugs with you.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I read recently that the Monarch Butterflies are migrating and that we should provide food for them in the way of plants. So, I ran out and got a mixture of plants that hopefully would attract them and provide traveling nourishment at the same time. And yes, they are attracted to those plants, but I was able to capture one feeding on Lemongrass seed pods in another pot. They are so beautiful close up, so I am going to show it in enlargement shots rather than a collage.
There are such minute details in these close-ups.
