September was eventful. We had our house painted yellow (so now I can't refer to my old house in Kingston as the Yellow House). I will hence call it the Kingston house. Can you tell how much I love yellow exterior paint? Our large and old fashioned linen closet got painted, the color inspired by a drawing room I saw in a book on old English houses. The driveways at the Kingston house property were finally paved and in applying for a paving permit from said town, I ran in to all sorts zoning and property line issues that were never resolved with past owners so my property now has it's own street name, Ginger Way and a corrected property line. After attending three different town meetings, other issues were resolved too. I attended a garden symposium in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut and spent many wonderful hours and miles exploring the delightful towns there and one particularly outstanding garden at Hollister House in Washington, CT. My dahlias and nasturtiums heavily fulfilled the measure of their creation. I hiked to the highest peak in New Hampshire, Mt. Washington, both torturous and glorious, with four friends. I won a Chili Cook Off for the second year in a row. Gabe and Dan had birthdays. Good stuff.
So, here's the end of summer, beginning of fall in pictures and probably a few more words.
