No color in the trees here yet. It's coming, I can see hints of yellow in some of the maples but because of the heat and the little bit of rain we had, I don't think it will be a banner year for fall color this year. Bummer. We had rain this weekend - lots of rain on Wed night, Thurs and Friday thanks to a tropical storm that blew up the east coast and drenched us.
The show I went to yesterday - Jim is there today - is on the Delaware River in an old mill from the late 1800s. The ambiance is great - big old beams, wooden floors with cracks you can see the water through! The Courthouse Quilters Guild does a great job of decorating with mums, cornstalks and pumpkins. It's just a really nice weekend, if the weather cooperates!

I also took a video. Remember, I'm not a professional videotographer. It will give you an idea of just how much it rained.
Till next time.
