Picking Peppers

A cold front was coming in.  

Jody was out of town and she sent me an urgent request.

"Please pick the peppers in my garden."

So off we went!

She twirled in the sunshine before getting down to business.

The old sheets and blankets were ready to shelter the plants from the coming cold.

Once inside, she sorted and counted. 

She separated the few red peppers from the green ones.

It was a very good harvest.

Some days hold unexpected surprises and delights.  
This day was one of them. 

 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
James 1:16-18

Autumn Extends her Stay

OK, I know it is December 2.

Would you please indulge me?  I am having a hard time letting go of Autumn.

In my part of the world, Summer shows up early and overstays her welcome.
She comes loaded with blow dryers set to high and an abundance of heating blankets.

Autumn has to push her out of the way.

So Piper and I headed out to enjoy her beauty before Winter hustles up to our front door.

Santa is peeking over her shoulder, letting us know it won't be long . . .
