Usually we have heavy frosts by now. I have not taken flower photos this time of year in a long time.
My roses put on a show all summer. How they survive with no care and no extra water is beyond me, they must have deep roots.
The Gaillardia had a wonderful summer, it isn’t a fussy plant.
I have them in three colors: Burgundy, Goblin and Golden Goblin (Yellow). This one is Goblin.
We raked some leaves onto the septic system. We moved the last of the wood pile to my brothers. We took a nap.
The lawn furniture has been put away. The grill went to the greenhouse/work shop. The three wheeler went away for the winter. Far Guy will put Stabil in all the gas tanks soon.
I think the No Hunting signs are all in place, only one had to be replaced. Some idiot keeps tearing the same one down every year. The bum.
I hung up all the shovels and rakes and I know where a particular shovel is that we will be needing but I will not mention the “S” word yet.
Now to wait for the rest of the leaves to fall out of the trees so we can finish raking and or mulching leaves. As soon as we have a hard freeze Far Guy will mow down all the wildflower gardens.
