Last flower of the season

(170:  Flower and rust.)

I’m going to be busy over the next two weeks.  We’re having a party on the 22nd.  It should be great fun, but before it’s great fun, I have to get things in order around here as well as decide on the menu for the party.  We may have that settled.  I’m not sure yet.  I still have time to think about it (and think about how much prepping and cooking I want to do).

On today’s agenda:  Laundry and gardening.   I am extremely grateful that I have a washer and dryer, and the electricity and gas (we have a gas dryer) to do the laundry.  Given the amount of laundry that accumulates so quickly around here, I would have spend days doing the washing if I had to do it all by hand.
