The months that is , I cant believe how fast time fly's by now .
The weather here has been up and down , cold nights turn into frosty mornings , winds blowing with warm sunshine and rising temps in the day . This morning we woke to warm breezes and it was up to 12C or 54F after the evening had dropped to 5C or 41F weird weather temps all over the place and they change fast .
I have finished what garden clean up I had left and will do the rest come spring as some of my plants require that to protect their root system over the winter , not all my plants can be chopped back in fall .
Miggs and I have been enjoying our early morning walks in the few crisp frosty mornings and the warmer mornings as well . We seem to have loads of Robins about this time of year as they migrate and stop off here and peck the ground that is still soft and feast on all the bushes and trees we have here stuffed full of berries . Starlings and Grackles are about in hordes as they are in the midst of migration as well , murders of Crows are about as they fly from place to place in the valley cawing like mad , lots of Eastern blue birds about being very elusive to my camera and other birds are enjoying our feeders .
Miggs has been snoozing a lot as the squirrels are not about as much as I guess they have gone to bed for the season or found some where else for now to feast .
After the last frost I figured I had better bring in my Geraniums and prepare them for the indoors like spray them with BUG be gone so bugs don't come in and get transferred to my indoor plants , I do this every year so far so good !
The stand that my Violets are on is actually a step stool Papa made for me years ago but I like using it as a plant stand it looks nice .
So whilst all the gardens have been put to bed for the season it is nice to have blooms indoors still going till spring .
We have lots of leaves out side to rake up again or suck up with the leave blower/vacuum or tractor which ever works best at the time lol this year I hope to mulch them and I think I will layer my garden beds with it all as they act like a protective blanket and by spring become fertilizer for the gardens .
Well that's about it for me , not much going on here now a days as the days get shorter , the light gets less BOOHOO ! and most things have been done and put away but all that said and done it gives me more time with camera in hand so that's a good thing hehe !
Until next time .
