After a coat of white paint and a five hour wait, Husband hung the star over our porch steps.  Great accent! 

What a Difference a Night Makes!


Here in our back yard, the leaves are about half down.  Gary began mowing and mulching.  A neighbor offered his blower and (in about the same time it would have taken to mow) the leaves were piled and burning.

It began to sprinkle. By the time the rain started to fall, the leaves were ashes.

Hosta in October

B.B. (Before Blogging) I seldom noticed - let alone took photos!
Now, EVERYTHING catches my eye.
The contrast of sedum flowers and yellow hosta leaves is striking.

"October Gave a Party..."

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

~George Cooper, "October's Party"

New Rock Border

I used the  larger of rocks in our rock pile to create this border.  I placed the rocks in the indentation formed by rain hitting the ground at the base of our shed.
