I wasn't sure we were going to get much color this year but then we got a good cold snap and all the leaves started changing. In fact, we've had a very colorful fall, which is always nice. I mean, I still always hate to see summer go but at least when autumn is pretty it helps my feelings a little.
The creek has just about been clogged up with all the leaves falling and we, unfortunately, still haven't had much rain to clear things out.
The drive is pretty though.
A moderate hike up behind the house just to see the ferns and rocks.
Some areas of these woods are literally carpeted with the Christmas ferns.
The garden is doing really well this fall but then, I really amended the soil again before planting with lots of chicken poo and compost. All the broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts etc. are knee high at least and the broccoli is starting to head up. I'm having a devil of a time with moles and voles this year though. Gonna have to see what I can do to run them off.
This burning bush that gets a lot of sun is really fiery this year! The other one is pretty but a more subdued red.
Another question for you other bloggers: I have noticed recently that Blogger has started condensing my oldest posts by removing my photos. I suppose to save space. Have any of you ever encountered this and what did you do, if anything? I think I could pay Blogger for more storage area but not sure that I want to do that. I know the photos are still out there, because I can call them up from the depths of my account, but I hate for them not to show because so much of my blog is about doing and showing what or how I'm doing something.
