The Falling Leaves...

Today it really feels like fall.  The leaves are starting to turn bright yellow on the birch tree and leaves from the ash and maples are starting to drop. We are in a mild drought here and the weather watchers have told us the tree color will be less than spectacular this year.  Nonetheless, I can see a neighbors maple tree that is glowing red across the lake; I am grateful for that.




Little Guy Noir is recovering from his neutering operation.  He acts as if nothing has happened. We have been giving him his pain medication and he is doing really well.  The girls could smell the Vets office on him when he got home, but are quickly back in their routines of napping, eating and playing.



We are still harvesting our tomatoes and should have another dozen or so, but there is a chance of frost in parts of town tonight.  An advantage of our little lake is that it moderates our temperatures and we don't get nipped by the early frosts, but that time is coming soon.  Now is our chance to clean up the yard and take care of all of those garden chores that are pleasant at 60 degrees but down right uncomfortable at 50 when the wind is blowing!

For those of you who enjoy the music on my blog, I have added some new titles and if you scroll down to the bottom you will find the MixPod gadget. If you click on the picture it will expand and there are some nice autumn themed pictures that accompany the music.  One of my favorite new musicians is Shane Walsh. I hope you enjoy his music as much as I do.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Poor little Guy Noir! Heal up quickly, buddy. And speaking of nuts, love the new header with the wee squirrel. Is that Peter Nutkin by any chance?

  8. Love the music. It's been getting cool here in central Florida ... for the past few days it got below 90 degrees. I long to move back to NY, to the Autumn, then come back to visit Florida for the winters.

  10. Love your new Autumn look Diane. The little squirrel is very cute. I'm starting to get tomatoes to pick now as well - there is nothing like enjoying produce you have grown and harvested yourself!

  11. I certainly do enjoy your music! Glad to hear your little cat is doing well; they generally do, and neutering was very responsible of you -- thumbs up! P.S. Do pop by my blog today for a little surprise :)
