Nice fall weather here, rained a little last night. On Saturday we went to a Pagan Pride Day. Torenia, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, Queen Anne's lace, morning glories, goldenrod, and frost asters are blooming. I got the suet cake hung up and my previous batch of tulips planted, then got a big bag of parrot tulips that I'm in the process of planting.
