I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

A little Red, orange and yellow

My likely last garden update is brought to you by my alter ego, Red Riding Wolf Hood.

Happy Halloween
Happy Halloween!

Little is left in the Goen garden but a few plants still have some fight in them — even after this past windy week.

Windy day

Tomatoes still lookin' good

The other pink daylily
This pink daylily didn't bloom all summer long. The leaves were yellowing and then this month, pow — a bud pops out of the ground. But I think the frost might have claimed this tardy flower. It doesn't want to open.

It's not a flora photo but it represents the season. I had a blast carving pumpkins for the first time in years with my knitty friends Em, Vicki and Zoe. "Dead Jack" is flickering away on the porch now. (Photo by Em Bielinski)

Back to the garden ... I'm going to miss my favorite season to take photos. Flowers are my favorite model (sorry, Em) ;-) and the long days give good light in my craft room. Goodbye garden and see you in spring!
