Around the house

Autumn continues to gently paint our piece of peaceful paradise. Except for the guns I heard at dawn,  and 7:00 a.m., I think it's goose hunting season.


This is pretty much the last of our flower basket flowers. This is lantana.


I painted my pumpkins!


Sadly, it rained the day I painted them, and I had to repaint!


This is the last of the frogs, I think! I emptied the goldfish pond, and brought the fishies in two days ago. 'News and film' another day!


Little teeny puffball mushrooms!


The bigs winds and storms knocked the grasses over on the frogpond. The dead grasses began growing since we've had rain.


The trees are lovely! You can see the quiet wood duck box at one end of the pond.


I built a ladder for the birdbath. The little sparrows nearly fall in trying to reach the water.


I took a walk in the wildlife sanctuary last Monday, more on that. Also, the new embayment project there. Another project, is to repair the bird feeder.
The kids come today for Thanksgiving. Turkey goes in at 11:00, all things being equal! See you later!

So many signs of fall! For some reason it seemed to hit all at once around here after a longer, hotter summer than I am used to.

It's grouse hunters down my quiet country road. I hear the vehicles driving back (I'm the last house on the road)and then the banging starts.

You certainly add to the color with your painted pumpkins.
