Just a brief note…
October has been a wild and wooly month for me.
After a fairly warm September, October made sure we knew it really was Fall.
A toasty fire in the woodstove daily was a must.
A mandatory sweater or jacket in the mornings and evenings,
if you had to leave the warmth of the house.
The leaves turned and pumpkins of all sizes and shapes showed up everywhere.
We had some snow and rain…
which makes me relish the sunshiny days even more.
I endured my first flu of the season…
that was not fun!
And today I enjoyed a day in the garden.
Fall clean up is the first step in planning next years garden.
I barely made a dent but I enjoyed it none the less.
There are a few garden hold outs.
This Happy Chappy rose is brighter without the hot summer sun fading it’s vibrant colors.
Somehow the visiting deer missed him as they noshed on all the other roses in the garden.
A late blooming foxglove.
And the ever hardy Black Eyed Susan.
As I trimmed back roses today I put a few cuttings into potatoes,
I am trying the trick I have read about and if I am successful I will share come Spring.
Enjoy your weekend.
And don’t forget to turn your clocks back.
