Having Fun Doing Yard Work On A Nice Fall Day



  Yesterday early in the morning  the dew draped  over everything and the fog was moving out and lifting as the sun rose giving us the promise of a nice fall day .

OCTOBER 2016 (2 of 46)

And that it was, a lovely day  , sun was shining clear sky’s warm temps and a day to get going with raking leaves as our trees are dropping loads on the ground  now .

I had to have  a camp fire going to  . Just something wonderful  about the fall air mixed with the smell of burning leaves and wood smoke , I love it .

We still have flowers that just don't want to stop blooming which is ok by me lol  , as our Clematis by our big old maple tree has been giving its last few HURRAHS !!!

The bees are still buzzing about on the few flowers that are still in bloom as they race against each other to get as much  pollen as they can .

                 Oh and talking about raking leaves well you know who just loves this time of year for that !!

                                                                                   Yup you guessed it Miggs.

                                She just saunters over and climbs in the pile and lay's there all happy and proud .

And sometimes she likes to help or at least she thinks she is helping which actually she is making me laugh silly dog .

                                                   Miggs always makes raking leaves that much more fun .

            I had to get her out of the pile to get it all cleaned up but this fun she has in the leaves sure does make for great photos every fall .

After all this fun of leaf rustling and she finally got out of the pile for me so I could get it tidied up  I heard a robin up in the crab apple tree as he was enjoying the berries from it . We have had lots of Robins , Grackles and Starlings about again , they seem to come back this time of year after  where ever they go for a month or two after they have finished nesting here in our trees and cedar hedges in the spring and early  part of the summer .

I got all the leaves tidied up then Papa came home from work and he cut the grass and I did the trimming   , I think this maybe the last time we will have to cut and trim the grass  but we will still have lots of leaves to clean up for a while  and watch Miggs play in the piles again and have fun .

Simply a gorgeous time of the year, your landscape always gives me a feeling of peace and serenity, and the fog lifting is magical.
Miggs you are such a sweet girl, she truly enjoys life :)
Beautiful post Elaine.

Yesterday was a gorgeous day and we had a lovely long walk down by the bay. Today it has been raining all day, so no outside stuff done. It seems the leaves are falling as fast as the rain sometimes.

Miggs is definitely happy!

There is a certain tired satisfaction in getting those fall chores done!

That first photo is gorgeous! I think Miggs enjoys being out in the yard with you all year around. What a sweet dog and so willing to post for the camera. :)
