End of Month Potpourri-October 2015

“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”  ~Jim Bishop       The morning of the full moon in September, the sun promised to rise in a glorious fashion.  The last bright star still glowed as the sun peeked over the horizon.  So I went out into the garden to […]
