Bliss Bits 10/1/2014

October. The nights are chilly. The red maple leaves have fallen and it’s the golden aspen’s time to shine, a little further up on the hillside. Huge moose have  visited the backyard the last couple of nights, munching my Italian parsley and peering in the window. There’s no anticipating fall; it’s here. Now the trick is to fully enjoy the shortest season before the snow flies. Here are some of the little ways I did that this week.

This time of year, the garden is producing but we have to watch for freezing nights.

And this morning, I made delicious cream cheese pesto tomato toasts with goodies from the garden. 

You know. Just the usual bliss.
