One of the guests, Jim Attwood, took pictures of our Thanksgiving celebration (but none of the knitters or fencers in action, or at least none that got on the website and not quite all the guests.) There's no picture of us all toasting Anne McCaffrey's life and influence, alas. Still tired (lots of cleanup today) and it's late, so more on the whole thing later.
Discovered this morning...this lovely rose blooming...
It's a Madame Alfred Carriere, from the Antique Rose Emporium, planted last spring as a replacement for one that died (very weird winter and freak winter storm that killed a lot of their roses, too.) It survived the summer, and greeted the (finally) cool air of late fall with three roses in the last week and a half.
