Here's the road to our house. The trees are across the street from Elizabeth's house. People stop to take wedding, homecoming and other pictures here.
I found this from last year....Some might call my garden “uncontrolled” but I call it wildlife-friendly. The beauty of it comes not just from the plants but from the birds, bees, butterflies, amphibians, mammals etc which have been made welcome by my creating habitats for them. Everyone can do the same by just being a little bit more uncontrolled. After the harvest, relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour and leave the garden to look after itself and the wildlife. Being too tidy is the eighth deadly sin.
The last of the fall deliveries is here. My new boots fit perfectly and are just what I wanted. I bought an in between jacket in black fleece. I'll get a lot of use out of that. The amaryllis and other bulbs to force are here too. Now, I can stop searching online and just get some projects done.
I've decided to make some little things for the youngest Sunday school classes. I'll show a picture, when I make a few. I was going to use them for bingo prizes, but they look like something that the little kids would like. I'm making doves for the bingo prizes.
Neither Joe nor I wanted to cook the pork chops that I had thawed for yesterday's dinner. I just put them in the crock pot with some mushroom soup and sliced onions. We'll have those tomorrow. I've never cooked pork chops this way....it will be an experiment.
You should see the view out my window here. The trees in the background of the houses across the street....are gorgeous. Blue skies with big puffy clouds. The bright green lawns and a bonfire in the back yard.I love this time of year....everything is so beautiful.
I am gathering some steam....sitting here. I think I will go out and plant the bulbs. I decided to put the mini daffs in Mary's Garden. I came in the house and looked at my pictures from spring this year... to see where I had some blooming. Now, when I go out, I'll know where to plant some. If I get them in soon, they will be covered with that pine needle blanket.
Now that my work is over outside....I can get on with plans for Thanksgiving. Everyone in our family is invited and I'm waiting for them to let me know if they'll be here. I love holidays with family all together..and Thanksgiving is such a special time. My Thanksgivings are very casual....with good food....comfortable clothes....games or football...and pies....pecan and pumpkin :)
I'm off to plant the bulbs...Balisha
