It’s day 3 of this Ultimate Blog Challenge. My enthusiasm and energy is already waning. It is better if I get the challenge bit out of my head and write from the heart and for myself. I love these sunny warm October days. I want to sit on my backstep with my cuppa and talk to the bees all afternoon. They love the colour purple. First it was the chives in spring. Now it is the New England Aster. They’re hopping from purple blossom to purple blossom, like little helicopters. I wonder where they go in winter.

I could sit here all afternoon. Maybe I can show you around a little if you haven’t already seen my photos on FB or Instagram.


  1. You have such a beautiful yard! Since you have such interesting blogs, maybe just think of writing a daily blog and leave the “challenge” out of it? I love the purple Aster with the bee!

  2. So fun to see your yard in its early autumn glory. And I’m with you, sometimes it is best to just write for yourself. Today all day I planned to finish a completely different post but with time running out, I went with a much simpler repurposed post from a social media platform! Sometimes you have to do what you have to do, right? Love those tiny purple flowers!
