one: It's Fall!! I am certainly loving the weather that comes with it.
two: I finally am enjoying my gardens. Other than watering them in the summer's heat, I didn't spend too much time in them this year.
three: The new dahlias that we purchased and planted are doing well, at least two of them are. We picked out three new ones, but the tubers of one just rotted in the ground. The other two, however, are doing great as you can see below.
four: The pot on the patio turned out great, if I must say so myself. And, even better, it was cheap. The only thing bought was the curly grass. The ivy was started from a clipping of a house plant that I have. The zinnia profusion was started from seed which I "obtained" last year by deadheading a plant at a local historical home.
five: I had another work trip this week. All went well, and it was quick - leave Monday morning and home on Wednesday evening. And, we had an evening of site-seeing. More on that later in the month.
six: We had new backyard visitors. Although we know turkeys are in the area, in the twelve years that we have lived here, we have never seen them in the yard. I still haven't, but Himself did and got a few shots of them. Thanksgiving anyone???
seven: Did I mention that the weather has been great? We've been enjoying the hammock a lot these last few weekends.
eight: The Hairy Beast has been a good dog, except when he isn't. But most of the time good, so we'll count that as a plus.
nine: Said Hairy Beast requires lots of walks, which is probably a very good thing. I get out to our local parks and I get exercise.
ten: The little, local airport has a "wings and wheels" event a couple weeks ago. People park their planes and old cars on the tarmac for viewing. A number of planes that aren't normally in the area come for the event. As they come and go, they usually fly over our house, a nice view from the hammock.
