It's a beautiful fall day out, sunny and mild with just a little breeze.

I fed the birds.

I scooped ash out of the firepit.  This time it occurred to me to try pushing it into a bucket like I do with mulch, which was much more efficient than trying to shovel it.  I sprinkled the ash around the prairie garden as fertilizer.

Two different sunchokes are blooming.  I wasn't sure any had survived, but evidently some did. \o/  There's another yellow flower blooming amidst the big bluestem, which has its little turkey-feet open.  Over in the wildflower garden, a purple aster is blooming.  :D
