Even through a couple of frosts there are still flowers blooming--mostly the African marigolds, the last of the zinnias, and an extended show from the hydrangeas. The dramatic color still grasping to twigs and tree limbs, the deep purple of Moses in a blanket, the grasses in an array of burgundy.

The saffron crocus bulbs are blooming, though I didn't expect anything from them this year. Hopefully that means they're happy and will fill a spice jar for me next year!

It's raining here, gray and drizzly, but exciting things are in the works. Tomorrow a special fab.com sale starts and we've got all sorts of plans for new work for the shop. Stay tuned!
