Fall flowers and tailgating

Today was a very sunny Sunday. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. It has been such a warm fall, that the black-eyed susans are still blooming! The plants are getting healthy and strong. Putting a weed barrier down and rocks around them to keep away the competing weeds really helped them this summer. Samantha got a new Friends to Be Made outfit at the Build A Bear store a few weeks ago, and with the temps in the upper 70's, it is still warm enough to wear short sleeves, capris and sandals during the day. The nights are getting cooler, so we know that fall is coming.

Another sign of fall is football season. Noah, a little bear and our house, had a tailgate picnic with his friends, Edgar, Allan and Poe, before today's Ravens game. The Swedish chef packed the picnic basket with some goodies, and they took their radio outside to listen to the pre-game show. I guess we should have told Noah that most people do their tailgating at the football game, not in their driveways!

Edgar, Allan and Poe are official Ravens mascots. Did you know that Edgar Allan Poe is buried in Baltimore?

It was a good day for everyone (except the Ravens, they lost).
