Miggs , Papa & I

 

The weather has been cold with the odd pop of sun . We had a bit of wet snow falling yesterday and earlier this morning  whilst Papa , Miggs and I were out finishing up the last bit of the yard and garden clean up . However I have left a few flowers in the gardens as they are loving the cold frosty weather  and still look pretty , even more so with frost on them , I will post photos  of them tomorrow .

                                                                 The story of our weekend so far .

As this garden is new this year with our hummer, butterfly and bee plants we put mulched leaves on them then  covered it all with burlap so they get a good winterizing as it is their first winter .

                              These photos I know all you Miggs fans will love  . Papa and I had fun with her .

Miggs is a hoot when it comes to doing the leaves and putting them in a big pile  she waits for this every year . One of her favourite things to do every fall !   Jump and play in the leaves !

             Then Papa vacuumed the leaves up with the blower mulcher  after Miggs was done playing in them .

                                                                              They were YUMMY ! 

Now it is Mid afternoon the clouds have started to set in on and off , the winds are blowing cold  icy feeling air  so Papa , Miggs and I are now cozy in side  happy that the yard and garden clean up is done  .

                                   

                                                                                 Until next time

Biggs sure does love those leaf piles. It's clouding over here too. There may have been a couple of dozen snowflakes drifting down about lunch time. But it is chilly, so I'm going through some recipes to pick up some comfort food to cook in the next few days.

Miggs seems like such a fun dog!

What a fun sight it must of been to see Miggs playing in those leaves..it is worth just being able to pile them up to see her play in them.
Looks like a good weekend and brunch was had by all.

Yes, this is my favorite time of year as well, Elaine, and we are so glad that we no longer have to do yard work and leaf raking. Of course, we still own our VA house, which remains unsold (sigh) but someone else is tending to the yard work now. Looks like Miggs and you all had a good outdoor workout and pancakes are a perfect ending.

Looks like a good day for those last fall chores. I tried briefly, but it was just too wet and cold!

I would love to play with Miggs in all those leaves! He looks soooo sweet! I love yard work like that.

I do kind of miss the leaf adventures from living in Illinois, but I don't like cold weather, and my blood is very thin now after being in Texas for so long. Looks like Miggs is having a grand time. Bet he took a long nap after. Love your tractor and wagon.
