Yay for October! It is supposed to reach 82 degrees today so the sun is still warming walkers on our neighborhood sidewalks. I found this rose along my route in a very weedy garden. People are tired of pulling weeds.
Samantha and Plum Cake were in a picky mood yesterday morning. They love "harvesting" the marigolds. The marigolds can take it! They are STRONG!
There are sprigs of lavender in the garden, too!
I think the squirrels are sharpening their teeth on our pumpkins. Oh well. We have two big ones and lots of little ones (pumpkins, not squirrels!) Bill has also seen a snake in our garden. Thankfully, I have not SEEN the snake. Shiver.
Hollyhocks and morning glories skirt the side of our house.
See what I mean? The marigolds are so happy!
Monday I went walking on the trail with a friend and we peeked at this pretty storybook house through the trees. (a VERY expensive storybook house by the way)
Rock 'em sock 'em ORANGE! October is orange, don't you think?
This morning I glued Gumbo Lily's sheep and Heather's (Blackberry Rambles) sheep in my journaling Bible. I also blew up both photos and framed them but I am waiting for a cleaning bug to bite me because I am hanging them in the family room and it needs a good scrub. When that is finished I'll reward myself with two big sheep pictures on the white walls. I'll show you, too.
Bright red leaves are landing in the back yard. Grands are noticing them and telling us about them (or giving them to us like little James). I put the leaf James found in my Bible. I wrote his name on it and the date.
One more zucchini picked today. Happy October!
