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!
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. : )
