Fantastic floral Jack. Heat wave up here this week but the bottoms supposed to fall out by Saturday. Like Canadian Autumn but the older I get the more I hate Canadian Winters. #8872440

Fabulous dahlia, Jack! We're trying to deal with the 90s today and tomorrow, but after that it should be MUCH cooler. Can't wait! #8872893

Just came back in from the farm helping my son separate the bulls from the cows. It is raining and boy do we need it. I first thought I was in Monnie Ryan's gallery when I saw this Jack, this is stunningly beautiful, WTG #8873815

Gorgeous color of both the flower and b/g-- great floral, Jack!!

Might've been an SUP (Stand Up Paddle) board you saw. Those are very long and wide although I haven't seen one quite as wide as a car. Not sure about the skeg (fin) size-- most nowadays are about 4-5" deep. Were they smaller than that? #8874257

Dick W. Wyatt 9/1/2010 1:01:48 AM

Beautiful flower Jack.

One good sign of fall I've seen, the Pelicans are back !

WE had 47 days of over 90 degree heat, a record even for us. #8874278

Gerda Grice level-deluxe 9/14/2010 9:48:16 AM

From down the road at the Organic garden.
End of the month and going out with a Heat Wave.
Been the story of the summer but I am looking forward to the cooling temps, migrating birds and that nip in the early morning air....
Will miss the smell of fresh cut grass & flowers.
Not looking forward to closing the pool, Heating Oil delivery nor the Squirrels digging and burying acorns all over the front lawn.
