We have the first day of Fall today. Fall obviously did not get the memo... Our weather is summer like with highs in the 70's...the sleepy skeeters, bees and tiny gnats are now real pests.
The weather is crazy...much like the rest of our world.
I mowed for a few hours yesterday then Far Guy changed my lawn mower blades...I have brand new mulching blades to attack the leaves in our yard. The mulching blades pulverize the leaves and they are returned to the lawn.
The leaves are piling up in our yard. I will be mulching leaves a good long time as weather conditions permit. I will be done in a month.
The leaves will be peak color this week.
The Hummingbirds have departed and a few Goldfinches stopped by on their way South. Our normal Chickadees, Nuthatches and Woodpeckers are year round residents. The baby Pileated Woodpecker stops by everyday announcing his visit. We talk to him...he is not afraid of us.
During my teenage years I had a birthday buddy and best friend... Cathie's birthday is today. She usually reads the blog! Happy Birthday Cathie!!
