Weeks, months fly by. The calendar pages almost flip over by themselves. Gorgeous autumn here... mild, sunny, gentle days. The colors are normally at their peak mid-October and here it is Halloween and still much green left and the most beautiful scenery every where. We are raking. We are carving pumpkins. I am enjoying the soups of the season. I made creamy squash soup the other day. Split pea soup will be Sunday's soup tomorrow.
