Dear WordPress furriends, we wanted you to know that our beloved Tabby cat, Dylan, died suddenly yesterday. It was discovered that a sudden onset of lethargy and change in his breathing was the result of cardiomyopathy. We will share more about this at another time. His brother, Bagheera, is searching for him and we are loving him up. The photos below are the last I took of my sweet Dylan. We love you Dylan.
Ugh. An October snow has officially ended Fall. (Before the final garden chores could be accomplished!)
The bright spot was a quick visit from Cousin Bob’s daughter, Lisa, en route to Portland, OR. We were able to score a night at the historic, floating B&B, The Covington Inn in downtown St. Paul, MN- still pretty in the snow!
Before: a walk just a week or so ago
Now: Welcome Lisa!
We decided it was time to take a break from all the insanity and Afton State Park Minnesota was a perfect respite. Fall is definitely in the air!
The park is gorgeous with plenty of places to hike and birdwatch- also spend a night or two in a cabin, tent or yurt.
If apple desserts or just plain good eating crosses your mind, a quick trip down the road will suffice. Whistling Well Farm Minnesota is a perfect place to pick apples or purchase them bagged.
The dessert pictured above is Apple Crumble Slab Pie from King Arthur Flour recipes.
An old friend rediscovered after a little over 50 years!
Flower close ups! Is this the garden’s last hurrah?
It looks like August will usher in some new blooms in the wildflower garden while the potted flowers continue to look amazing!
