Hello everyone,

I couldn't resist sharing these pictures of our three year old grandson Noah talking on his toy cell phone to his imaginary friend Sally. I laugh at the expressions on his face and the actions as he was flipping around. Oh! Noah you are such a funny boy.

I am happy to have our house and shutters painted now. The color isn't a lot different then before but it is a little change from the taupe that it was before and it is fresher.

This was our allee garden in early July

and sadly this is what it looks like now as we our we are chopping down the tops and hauling them to the compost heap. I will be hoping for snow soon to hide the bareness!

We have loads and loads of wheel barrow loads to haul so we are happy to get a few sunny days.

I wanted to show you the fairy rose still blooming and has loads of buds yet-you have to love that!

Some of you asked for the recipe for spice pumpkin cream cheese crunch muffins so I am including it here
