Gorgeous fall days

We've been having some truly magnificent fall days this week! Lots of blue skies with scudding clouds, cool days, brilliant sunshine ... and I've been fortunate to soak up a fair amount of it! I was also fortunate to go the Morton Arboretum a 2nd time in less than a week, when I went last Thursday with our friend next door & his wife's cousin. We spent three hours there!
I've decorated the house, inside and out, with lots of Halloween & fall decorations. While not as elaborate as the Arboretum's displays above, I'm still happy about our little touch of the season. The zinnias are quite happy & putting on a nice yellow-orange-red display of their own!
At 9 am, it's 45 degrees F ... and we should have a high of 62 today. Just awesome.
