After donning my cable sweater, I though it fitting to adventure out into the field where there are thousands of wild asters. I've never seen them bloom before (must have been from all the rain and cooler weather we've had this year).
I picked a little cluster of them, making sure to not pick up the roots with it. After all, I'd like to see more of these next year.
I put them in a little silver vase and added a black-eyed susan for good measure.
They add such a bright spot by our kitchen window. Well, I'm off to fix a pot of tea and enjoy an apple-nut muffin before I head out to the Post Office to mail off all of those totes. A happy day-before-fall to you all!
PS. I do so love my new corduroy skirt! Being a fan of sweaters, I didn't really have the need for a jacket, and I did need another skirt for the cooler months.
PPS. Just so everyone knows, there is a new Gracie apron up in the shop today!
