Nope, I'm serious. Halloween lilac blooms
Mom had me take a picture to prove it.
Oh, and I found THE WAY to get the Sweet Gum balls out of the rain gutter. Climb up on the roof with my new Hitachi leaf blower. stick the nozzle in the gutter and walk. Although it is better if there isn't water in the rain gutter.....
I didn't try taking any pictures. Staying on the roof seemed more important.
