Fall, autumn, time passes…

Don’t you just love that GLOW?

The air is crisp, the ground is crunchy. We had a very dry summer and it has changed the landscape this fall. For most of the summer the pond was, well, more of a puddle. Here is what it looked like last week, very little water, lots of leaves.

But happily today, after several days of rain, we have a real pond again!

Another outcome of the strange weather over the last year is the total lack of apples.

This was taken about a year ago(October 2011). More apples that I could keep up with.

and the same view September 25th 2012

Not an apple to be seen. How strange it looked!

I am looking forward to next year. A new chance at this garden. We have been here for a year now, I know what comes up where, and what I want/need to change. I have many, many plans.

So soon we will put away the chairs.

Start bringing this in load by load…..

and settle down for a long winters nap. To dream of gardens and browse seed catalogues, and craft away the evenings.

Did somebody mention Christmas! Only 68 days!

  1. How gorgeous. I always enjoy your photographs. A couple of years ago my grapefruit tree bore very little fruit. I don’t know why. I didn’t care because I can’t eat them but sheesh! a lot of the neighbors were upset. : )
