Glorious Weekend!

This has got to be one of the all time best weekends ever!

It began, as it should, on Friday night with the engagement party for Patrick and Chrissy and what a party it was (be patient...next blog entry!). Then dinner Saturday night with fun friends, and two glorious days of summer-like weather with which to enjoy the fall foliage. Sunday afternoon the Giants won and to top it off, the Red Sox tied up the playoff series on Saturday night! Yes, I know...I'm a Yankees fan but I am NOT one of those fans who roots for whomever is playing the Red Sox. So a great Sunday with the final Red Sox game tonight. Life is indeed good.

But back to the weather...I was stunned to see in NYC Saturday morning that the trees in Central Park were still green and that New Yorkers weren't even close to experiencing what we're seeing in Connecticut. And so for all you city dwellers, here's what's coming.........

We have not had a frost yet (unheard of for October 21) and the summer plants are loving that.

Even the tomatoes are hanging on!
