This Is Autumn

A very enjoyable week with the Sisters has ended. They came. They saw peak autumn which is oddly running a bit late this year. They took Bulbarella south on their return.

There were many fine home cooked meals. Squash was a featured item all week. Potatoes, tomato, pepper and beets from the roadside vegetable garden were slipped in.

We went for a walk in the glowing woods

All the way to a pasture were a certain loose herd of cattle emanate.

The color was excellent.

The temperatures were a tad warm.

The drought continues. I am pleased to know fall still works close to normal during a drought.

This is autumn.

Because I was busy visiting, blogging was impaired.

These pictures were taken over the entire week.

This is pretty much what it looks like today.

This is unusual. Normally this close to November 1st, the barren time is well under way.

The absence of wind and rain is a likely factor.

I will just have to suffer with autumn for a while longer.

On the day they left I began the process of closing down the other house for the winter and preparing the garden for the return of the tree trimmers. Sections of the Lush are getting an early chop and drop. My baby trees and shrubberies will be plainly visible.

Miss Dinah has joined us for the winter ...... if it ever comes.

I don't suppose you do Christmas cards but if you do pic 11 should be it

I hope you get some rain soon. We still need some. It is quite brown here. You have so much color.

It needs a little snow for a Christmas card Sallysmom. Maybe for Thanksgiving.

No rain in the forecast Lisa. I am surprised the color is this good as dry as it is.
