Good morning again. We are going to a conservation area today. It seems our lack of rain has rendered the river beds dry. It will be cool for the kids to see.

Yes very sad. But the good news is not all the water is gone. Just the bottom of the holly mound that has the limestone worked away from the water and the wind.
So what is dry is just between the shore and the rocky hill in in the middle of the river. Really cool though..the kids loved it.

And Carol did not have to make (or clean up) a meal
So yay!

Today I planted pansy's. I think they're so sweet. Also planted a row of radishes. I'll plant another row next week.

Other than that just trying to make Thanksgiving and Christmas plans.

We're having a cold snap but we'll go back up before the cooler temps stay here for a while.

Sunny it really is nice having things blooming all year. My camellias are already blooming and they'll bloom until way after Christmas.

Sheri: lucky you.

Here is is in the high 60's..low 70's during the day and we'll below freezing at night. "They" say the nights will go back to well above freezing around the end of the week.

I know it is no secret but I " dislike" winter.

Everything is done blooming here. Most of the trees have already lost all their leaves as well. I have to get out on a dry day and start cleaning up the flower beds and prepping them for the next season...but I'm not saying that word. lol

It is raining today, tomorrow as well in the forecast.

Aw..we had "tiny" strawberry flowers on some in IL just at the edge of the area below my deck
I was hoping I might see tiny berries. But nope not really.

And now I will say goodnight.

I had started to cut back a few perennials before the cold hit, then I noticed yesterday that since it has warmed up again.....I have a delphinium and a lupine setting new blooms.

The rain is done for a few days....outdoor chores await.

Goody for you. That is what I am hoping for here next week.

Seone needs to come and make me clean out my blackberries. I always do it right after they beat. With the heat we had last summer I did not.

Good morning

The perennials are all cleaned up and cut back as well as a few shrubs. Today I need to prune the crabapple tree...then I'll tie up the shrubs to protect them from Winter damage.

Slow and steady wins the race I heard. lol

you may be steady, but you are not slow. I should get half as much accomplished that you do. I would still be a success.

If you need something to do, come on over. You can help me. Why I would even feed you.

I wish I did live close....but your DH would not like it. lol

The frost is as thick as it gets this morning. I guess it is time to move all the Summer equipment around in the shed and put the Winter items in front.

Yes, it is 32*F this morning with heavy frost but is supposed to hit over 70*F this afternoon, the grands are sniffling and coughing already.

We are raking leaves and mulching them to add to the garden today....they are working without even knowing. lol

They stopped doing the Samaritan boxes here a few years ago at GG's school. They have since 'adopted' the elderly at the local nursing home....they make 'treat bags' for the holidays for them instead.

I got sidetracked yesterday. Indoor chores to tackle today....hopefully.

That sounds like a nice idea. That way about the kids know who they are donating my g to a MN d then the people have something to look forward to. Especially those without family. I think that is a good thing.

It is supposed to rain today.. Here's hoping that forecast is correct.

Well we got 4/10 of an inch of rain today. Not what I was hoping but hey, I'll take it, even if I do need to water my sage again tomorrow.

Washing clothes and doing some cleaning today.

Gracious me. It is always something on the work front isn't it? Hardly seems right that the work never stops.

On a side note..I have some ripe tomatoes to pick....they are the cherry variety
I love using those in salads, and the girls love eating the yellow ones.

Enjoy your tomatoes. It's a good thing for cherry tomatoes....if it wasn't for that variety we wouldn't see a ripe tomato on a vine here. lol

Today I need to make GG a set of wolf ears and a tail for her Halloween costume. I wish these grands of mine would pick a costume from a store....but I guess that would be too easy.

Thanks about the tomatoes. The vines are pretty much dead but there are still green tomatoes on the vines. So I am hopeful I can get a few more ripe ones.

Valarie was harried as she has to make Heidi a costume yet. I really need to learn how to use my machine. I could save her all kinds of time and do such for her.
35 outside just now.
