When fall comes to the midwest

Happy October, all. We woke this morning to the first frost of fall, and for the first time ever I didn't lose any plants. Just a few leaves off a basil.

A brief return to graduate work is taking me away from my home (and nearly everything else), but at least I get to enjoy gorgeous crisp fall mornings like this.

Looks absolutely perfect. Enjoy the fruits of your labors.

And you get to drive through those early morning fogs like I do.

Someday I want to see your house in person. (Perhaps I can deliver The Gone-Away World when you're done in December!)

Alison held forth

How is it possible you've never been here? OK, that's an oversight we need to fix, fast...

I have to admit I take a weird joy in watching the sun come up over Marengo.

Anonymous held forth

I've heard a rumor that mutual friends of yours will soon be in town... what better excuse?
