We were watching re-runs of Downton Abbey today, I couldn't help but smile as I watched the offer of "tea ?" being suggested at every twist and turn.

Over the last couple of days, the remains of hurricane Delta has taken away our sunshine.
The dark clouds linger overhead, making for dark and dreary days. If I didn't know the difference I would think we were in the depths of winter, even the house has taken on a different hue.
The days are noticeably shorter, dark by 7:00pm now, the wild turkeys lead their flocks to the nightly roost late afternoon, and the last of the hummingbirds are leaving for their winter homes.
Orange pumpkins and Chrysanthemums are replacing summer blooms, now fading fast.

The arbor- trellis roses are still blooming their little hearts out.
Perfect sunny days, and mist-laden, cool nights, affording them once last chance at a flush of beauty, before the first frost appears.

The first time I laid eyes on this incredible English landscape painting, was in my hometown museum, I was smitten.

These early days of Autumn, a little decorating, a little gardening, a little relaxing. Nights are drawing in fast, dark before the clock strikes seven now.
Our days are still seasonally warm, in these Southern United States, giving the opportunity to finish those end of summer chores, before Old Man Winter sets in.
Kiddies are worried their Halloween trick-or-treating may be a "no go" this year, life as we knew it....on hold.

Cool mist-filled mornings, and daytime temperatures are seasonably pleasant.

I had a little tea party

The flowers look bedraggled, water-logged in fact.
This picture of the Autumn Joy Sedum was taken mid-week, it's finally in bloom, and turning a delicious shade of crimson.
Autumn is just around the corner.
