About an hour drive away from Inverness, just over the Wisconsin border, there is a Jelly Belly warehouse/store. You can take a tour and see how jelly beans are made. The company goes back before the 1900's. It really is a fascinating tour. This is taken out in front of the store. If you are ever in Kenosha, Wisconsin....it is a great place for a visit....AND they have a tasting counter for those unusual flavors you might like to try!

It seems like it was overnight the leaves went from green to brown. This is the sugar maple in front of my house that usually turns a BRILLANT color of red. It is turning orange and dropping leaves. The Honey Locus has already dropped all its leaves. Maybe because we haven't had a lot of rain in the past month......

Even though my flower garden is about done....the asters are the last to go....here is a stalwart fellow looking for something. I do believe that is a WEED the bee is on but far be it from me to purge my entire flower bed of weeds.....not that I haven't tried...I just wear out after a bit!

Thanks to Louis over at San Francisco Daily Blog for hosting bridge Sunday!
This is a street in our neighborhood that is a very tight crossing over a very small creek. When there is ice on the road....you do need to pay attention to the hazard sign! Have a great Sunday.

Meet our new daughter in law, Rainey...or Yang Ran. Gregory married her in June in Beijing...We had a wonderful time and are delighted to have Rainey as a member of our family. They have been here visiting for a few weeks. I am sure she will be delighted to get home as she has met sooooo many of Greg's relatives --on both sides of the family. I can only imagine what she will tell her parents about her new family! I certainly remember what I told my parents after I met all 9 siblings of my husband.....quite the event!!!

Thanks so much to *Louis* over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo for hosting The Sunday Bridge Series. While I was NOT playing croquet, I have spent one weekend in Kansas City, MO. and the other in Washington D.C. And after this weekend...which is our 34th wedding anniversary, I will be gone to Beijing, China for my oldest son's wedding. Blogging is NOT easy to do in China if you do not have a computer to take with you so I will be unable to stop and visit. Hope you all have a great month.
This is a bridge I saw as we left a FABULOUS barbecue in Kansas City. It goes over a retention ditch I think.
