I forgot to share with you the pie I made for K's birthday! It turned out great, except that I screwed up the crust. It wasn't nearly as good as last year's crust. You can't really see it in the photo, but trust me, it wasn't as good as last year's. I think he still likes it, though. Half of it is gone!

I love the mossy green bricks in some of the shadier gardens! Also, some of the autumn plants are blossoming... like those orange lanterns, above. I also like to peek into the hidden gardens of some of the homes...
I love the cascades of pink flowers on the second story balcony of the home above. And check out these bright pink morning glories on the balcony of one of my favorite converted homes in my neighborhood... Lots of people live in this mansion, and there are little gardens outside, as well as on the decks above the first story.
It's a joy walking to work in the lovely weather we've been having! It's warm, but not too humid. The evenings cool down now, like what I'm used to on the west coast. Also, the air smells very nice pretty much all the time! In spring, when people were composting and fertilizing their gardens was probably the smelliest I've ever smelled the area. But luckily that didn't last too long!

I hope you're all enjoying the last bits of summer while we have it... soon it's autumn, which is my next favorite time of year (ties with spring, actually.) No need to worry about winter... it'll be here soon enough.
