Good Bye Summer, HELLO Fall!

My Beautiful Fuchsia from my parents!
I took a last photo look around the house to see how my veggies and herbs are doing in this cooler weather of October.
Red Geranium
Pink Geranium
Peppermint in the Back garden
Rosemary
Thyme
Our Huge Tomato Plants!

Tomatoes! from the Right Plant
We love to eat our fresh tomatoes! And due to the colder mountain air, we have to ripen our green tomatoes on the window sills of our home! And they smell great when ripening... and don't last as long as we would really like! We enjoy tomato sandwiches and pickled tomatoes, salsa and tomato sauce. But this year, there will be more sandwiches than anything canned!
Geraniums Pink

Pink Roses and Rose Hips.
So these are the last of the blooms on the Geraniums and the Rose.  And we say goodbye to Summer!

And tonight is the Lunar(Blood Moon)Eclipse! The first 2 photos are from the front yard on the evening before the later eclipse.
The Moon just above the tree line and in the clouds.

Last night/this am at 3:00MT we went outside to see the "Harvest Moon" Lunar Eclipse and had a beautiful show! The moon shone bright in the Western Sky with a ring extending out from it.

During the Eclipse at half way point. The glow is from the clouds in our night sky.

 The photos of the eclipse were taken before and during the Harvest Moon Eclipse Phase. The cloud cover makes these photos look blurry. They were not out of focus.

The end of our show!
 We went in because we were too cold to stay for the second half and it was already an hour & 1/2 show! We say Hello to Autumn! Enjoy!
