October Daily 7


A very quick post this evening. I spent today mostly in the house, chatting on the phone to a number of friends and family, doing laundry and tidying up. Tomorrow will be full on food preparation for our Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. 

This evening we watched Dr. Blake, a murder mystery set in Australia just after the second world war. I made some popcorn to munch on while we watched. 

Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this close-up of Cafe au Lait - a truly stunning dahlia, and worth her fussiness to grow. Although our temperatures are cooling, the sun continues to shine with little hope of any rain. Tomatoes continue to ripen in the garden, and roses, dahlias, and zinnias make a colourful showing. 

Goodnight, dear readers.


  1. Beautiful flower! Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

  2. She's gorgeous! I am imagining the bustle of activity in your Thanksgiving kitchen...most pleasant!

  3. Happiest of Thanksgiving weekends to you! It is such a joyful thing to gather with loved ones and offer thanks to God!
    Yes, that dahlia is stunning!

  4. Hi Lorrie~ Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. The photo of the dahlia is so beautiful! I love how the flowers always give us a second round of beauty this time of year. Enjoy your week-end! Hugs, Barb

  5. That was funny! When I read that you were celebrating Thanksgiving I immediately thought... oh my gosh... did I skip a month and not even notice? Then I remembered you are in Canada not the US.. had me scared there for a minute.

  6. Lost comment... have a wonderful Thanksgiving.


  7. That dahlia is magnificent. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Dahlias are the stars of the show right now and just about the only plants that haven't suffered too much during the hot summer. It is raining more now and I hope all my old favourites will survive this strange year.

    that's not anonymous, that's me, Friko. Why is that happening? Not just here but in other blogs too.

    1. Blogger has been quite frustrating lately. We have had no measurable rain for over 80 days and that's highly unusual. It's been a very strange weather year!

  10. Cafe au Lait is a gorgeous Dahlia! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  11. WOW! That dahlia is a stunner!
    Hugs and blessings, Lorrie ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

  12. Happy Thanksgiving! What a gorgeous dahlia, and I love the name.

    Happy Thanksgiving wishes.

    All the best Jan
