Dill, originally uploaded by Melsky.

This was taken on Labor Day. I'm late on my updating! My dill plants did very well this year. However, this is not my garden. I took it at the Beaver Lake nature center in Baldwinsville. My friend and I went kayaking there. One of my goals this summer was to go kayaking and I just barely made it.

Now it's really feeling like fall, cool weather and many leaves changing. I just took my air conditioners out.

Sunflowers and Tomato

Sunflowers and Tomato, originally uploaded by Melsky.

It's starting to feel a lot like fall! I love fall. I love the cooler temperatures and the colors. Though it really hasn't been an unpleasantly hot summer.

This is a tomato that grew through my fence. I was growing them up the fence on the other side. Also two of my smaller sunflowers. The one that looks like a chrysanthemum is a teddy bear sunflower.

We are buying another house, a very nice one on Tipp Hill.

Five Birds

Five Herons, originally uploaded by Melsky.

Probably Herons or Cormorants. This photo was taken while I was kayaking on Beaver Lake. I enjoyed it a lot and would like to go back. Sadly I went on the last day they rent boats there for the year - it stops on Labor Day. But I will be back to walk on the paths around the lake.

Here at home my garden is in great form. I'm getting a lot of tomatoes and yesterday I made a wonderful tomato vegetable soup with some of the slightly too ripe ones. My sunflowers are blooming. On of them is 8 feet 10 inches tall! The stem is two inches across.

It's supposed to be hot today but I can tell fall is coming. Some of the trees are changing. I'd like some cooler weather but no frost until my pumpkins are ready.
