Tuesday Tidbits #143 September Breezes In

It’s cool and breezy…

Windows are open…

Soup is simmering…

Feels like Fall!

Stuffed Pepper Soup

Welcome and Happy September!

Soup’s On! I’m still not hurrying Summer… but I sure enjoy the cooler temperatures.

These cooler temps made for a delightful day at a nearby winery. Sipping wine by the grapes and smelling their sweet fragrance was heavenly. The grapes are ready to be harvested.

We picked a bunch and they were sweet!
We live in an area where grapes grow quite nicely. We have become a sought after area for wine.

Surprisingly there are 42,000 acres of vineyards along Lake Erie in Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. And many more acres that spread into Canada. The local wineries are making fabulous wine.

This is the entrance to Cask 307 Winery in Madison, Ohio.

From Wine to Ducks

It’s that time of year when the lake starts hosting many migratory ducks. This is one I have not seen before.

This weeks Creature Features

Do we have a Hybrid Mallard here? …hybridization is quite common with Mallards. Looking for bird experts to let me know what the Black Duck is with the white breast.
Male Mallard or a Scaup Duck?

With Fall approaching we can hear the calls of the Canadian Geese as they fly in formation overhead. On the Lake we had hunters waiting for some to land on the lake.

Those are decoys around them. They had several hundred Canadian Geese land near them and a few shots were fired. This is the area of the lake called the Inlets.

Fall Blooms

Sedum
Our pollinators at work!
All blooming in harmony.

I brought some sedum inside along with my Tea Cups… I found it quite enjoyable!

I love my bejeweled Tea Pot!

I wish for all of you to have a lovely week ahead… thank you so much for the visit!

  1. Nancy, autumn is approaching and I am so ready. What fun to visit a winery and be able to pick grapes. Cooler weather is perfect for soup, seeing yours makes me want a bowl for lunch. I will show Butch the duck and see if he knows what kind it is. Your sedum is gorgeous with the lovely cups.

    Happy Tuesday, my friend!

    1. Happy Tuesday sweet friend. I gathered the sedum last evening and just wanted a simple gathering with my tea cups. Thank you for checking with Butch about the Duck… we are stumped!
      Enjoy your Tuesday and thank you so much for stopping by.

    1. Sedum is such a lovely addition to a fall garden. And especially loved by our wonderful pollinators!
      Enjoy your Tuesday my friend!

  2. I never thought of bringing seedum in the house — it’s beautiful! I missed our last Cork Poppers wine tasting (too many people!) so my tasting has been limited to our six-for-sixty wines from a local wine store. Still good, but you miss the ambiance! It sounds wonderful and such a grand time! Thanks for your visits to Marmelade Gypsy, too!

  3. Cooler temps, lucky you!! I had no idea there are wineries in your area, it’s so much fun to visit wineries and taste the wines. Your tea vignette with the sedum is beautiful, and the cups and teapot gorgeous!

  4. I love your “welcome to fall” post. So many beautiful pictures! Your trip to wine country would be so much fun this time of year. That winery has put a lot into making their tastings and their landscaping elegant. Thanks for sharing it.
