Pictures of Fall

The past two days have been absolutely beautiful in our area. The sun came out yesterday, and has been beaming the whole day today. The wind though picking up now has really been slow and lazy most of the day. I of course have been inside the house most of the day, sitting at the computer doing one thing or the other. When James gets home we plan to pull out all of the pumpkins. Hurrah for that. It might be early, but I will be glad to know they are out-of-the-way of the critters now that the vines are dead anyway. Time out to go bring Tigee into the house. The hawk from the trees behind the dike is circling, and I would rather she isn’t the target.

I took these seeds off some short little marigolds on the north of the house a couple of years ago and here in the garden they are huge. Who knows?

When I went to take the picture on the left, I saw a flash of yellow. I parted the rows and found the little yellow flowers.

Roger was sitting by the zucchini waiting for some creature to emerge. She looked up when I called. She is something else as a cat. She either believes she is human or a dog, I am not sure. She smells better than a dog, and listens better than most humans I know. The other positive is that she is a pretty good hunter though I wouldn’t ever want to eat what she brings home. So that is all for today. Hope you are having a lovely fall, or spring as the case may be. Happy gardening!!
